    FINALLY got my hands on a shield :wow:

    I'm in love.

    Here's some pics compared to my EDC, Kahr CW9. I was loving the CW, but the shield is a lot nicer

    Hope those pics help someone out, I was looking for these pics when I got my CW.

    The trigger on that shield is AMAZING!

    Nice photos. I've been eying those 2 guns for a new edc. Is that the standard CW mag or a +1 mag? Does the CW have a flush mag?

    That's as flush as it gets with the kahr!


    Should be wrenching instead of using TapaTalk

    I put 200 through the shield and another 50 through the kahr. It's still a toss up for me. I like the shields construction better and nothing on it feels cheap. I don't like that sometimes when puttig it back together from field stripping, the spring does not sit right and it won't let the slide go back all the way.

    I also don't like how it goes out of battery so easily. But i can't see it being a huge problem.

    I like the grip on the kahr a lot better. I get full 3 fingers. But I gotta say that shield is amazing. Something about it.

    The trigger on it is amazing. Better than my glocks IMO!!! The reset is very crisp.

    I have a crossbreed mini coming for it. Can't wait to start carrying it more

    Congrats!

    The mag on the Shield looks like it's not inserted all the way. I'm sure it is, but what's with the gap?

    Both are nice guns....I want a pocket 9 soon, but I felt that a Colt LE6920 was the smarter buy, given the current political climate.

    It must just be the angle of the pic, sits very flush!

    Looks to be a rubber Talon Grip.

    Seems to be the consensus. Now they need to make their m&p line have the same trigger as the shield! I'll buy one!!!
