M&P Shield question

Bud's Police Supply has a M&P Shield without thumb safety for $335.00 shipped. I can get a FFL to do the transfer for $10, so I would have $345.00 in a new Shield. Is this probably one of the better deals I can find on a new Shield? At the last gun show my friend went to they were going for $379 plus tax.

Think I need to shoot my friend's and see how it fits me, then may get one ordered.

Any Shield owners want to throw in some comments good or bad about your experiences? Thanks in advance!

The Shield 9mm is a great pistol and you will be very happy with one. I have one that has about 2000 rounds through it with no problems. Very nice shooting and light recall.

That's a fantastic price. I'd buy it.

I like my shield 40, but I've only run 150rnds through her, so we're still getting to know each other... But I'm glad I made the purchase.

Really like my Shield .40.

The price you quote is FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

The ONLY thing I don't like about the Shield, is the price for additional magazines.

44mag.com historically has had magazines for both caliber Shield(s).

Buy it. You will NOT regret it.

Huh?
Buy it!
If you don't like it after you shoot it, you can sell it for at least what you have invested into it.

Great price! I didnt know you could get a Shield without a safety like the other M&P's or I would have when I bought my Shield 40. Might have to sell it, she is fairly new still. Going to wait atleast till Wed to see what Smith comes out with.

I'm on the fence about an M&P Shield too. But leaning toward it for a carry 9mm...

That is a great deal. I became very familiar with the Shield much more quickly than I thought I would. After only shooting it a small amount it felt like I had had and shot it for a long time.

I'll join the chorus: great gun, fantastic price. I can't tell you how impressed I am with the Shield 9mm ... and I've been a committed Glock guy for 25 years.
The Shield just flat-out performs. It's slim, concealable, accurate, easy to shoot and reliable. What's not to like?

that is one helluva good price! back when they were rarer than hen's teeth, I bought a shield for $429.00. I bought the .40, and would like a 9MM. if I run across one at the prices you are talking about, I'll jump on it. great little gun, BTW.

I've only shot a friend of mine's 9mm Shield a little, but that was enough to convince me I must have one. I'm planning to order one this week.

I have the 40 shield and got it through PSA for $344. The recoil is softer than the 27 I just got rid of. Having the shield eliminated the need for the 27.

The wife and I spent a Saturday A/B'ing my Glock 26, a Springfield xds and a 9mm Shield for her first 'big girl' carry gun. We ended up getting the XDS because she shot it better and preferred the grip. However, it put the Shield on my gotta have list, shot the eyes out of every target, fits all my Glock holsters and is both thinner and lighter than the G26.

I love my 9mm Shield. It is, quite simply, the best carry gun I have ever owned and carried.

I started out carrying things like a S&W 6906, an HK P7M8, various J-Frames and an SP101, a G26 that I have carried for the past ~20 years and, IMHO, the Shield tops them all. I LOVED the G26 but it was a chunky little beast. Shot well but printed sometimes under just a t-shirt when carried IWB. The Shield, because it is so much thinner than the G26, carries and conceals much better than anything I have ever carried.

The price you quoted is excellent, as was said above, especially for the non-safety version. I bought mine back in Jan and paid roughly $425 for mine. They were still hard to find around here then, so I didn't complain. Great gun, shoots very well. I think you'll be happy with it and, if you aren't, it should be super easy to sell.

Jump on it. They usually run for $370 at a LGS and retail stores around $449 so that is a steal. I bought a .40 at a match price. Actually $340 at Gander before they added on the $30 free clean pro plan
