Aren't there aftermarket bolt release levers you can get that are bigger than standard?

All the time, when I'm not trying to do speed reloads.

Yep, which is why I'm asking for people's experience with specific makes/models for recommendations.

Have you thought about running the charging handle during a reload if you can't consistently hit the paddle under stress?

Ended up getting a S&W M&P9c instead because I found one new with 3 spare mags for like $30 more than I was seeing used police trade-ins. Also it felt wrong not carrying a S&W. I'll get the Victory within the year, I bet, though, because my P22 is driving me up the wall

You could have bought an M&P 2.0 Compact

I got the 1.0 and 3 spare mags (NIB mind you, so all the goodies and whatever too) for about $100 less than just a 2.0 and whatever comes with it. I also like the size of the 1.0 better, and it's the exact same weight as the beater-ass PT111 I carry sometimes so I'll be used to its size and weight (also the mags will fit in my little pouch ezpz). I was about to get a 2.0 for $299 from a liquidator but I asked him a question and he immediately tacked another $140 to his price
