I've been thinking about chopping the beavertail off my M&P 9 for a while. I really like the clean look of the shield and the tail on my fullsize digs in to my fat. So tonight I got ambitious with the dremel and sliced it off. I need to grab some fine sandpaper tomorrow and probably wet sand it down to finish it off and grab a polishing bit for the dremel, but overall I think I didn't do too bad of a job. Sorry in advance for the photo quality, not the greatest cameraman. For comparison, here is a normal M&P.
