Now I can't wait to shoot it.
My local dealers here in the south are getting pissed at S&W for introducing a gun they weren't prepared to produce in sufficient quantities. The demand is high here, but supply for months has been near zero for most dealers. Even BassPro hasn't been able to get them and they won't start a wait list because the demand is so high.
Congrats on finding a good used one. I've given up.
I really wanted one when I was buying a CCW and couldn't find one anywhere. I ended up settling for a Taurus PT709 slim with the intentions of trading and taking the hit when the shield became more available. I have learned to love my Taurus in both how it conceals/carries and how it shoots.
I will still give the shield a try when the range picks one up to rent, but I'd have to be stunned by it to get rid of my slim now.
From my iPhone, forgive the spelling
I have one w/ the Apex kit in it. The trigger is about as good as a polymer pistol can get...no joke. Put some big dots on it and I think it is perfect for CCW. The XDS 9 does intrigue me though.
Great job with the review.
Do you own either?
Mine has the Apex Tactical hard sear and ultimate striker block as well as Meprolight Tru Dot night sights. I'm very happy with its performance and relaibility.
No, just wondering if you are speaking from personal experience or not. I am seriously considering both, including upcoming 9mm xds. Trying to determine if you have hands on experience, or are a Ford guy who thinks every Chevy is a POS. (no offense)
Atlanta, I had both. Kept the Shield. The XDs is a fine weapon, but the Shield just seemed to be the right balance between range, concealed carry, and capacity. For me.
Thanks for the feedback!
It's a nice little shooter. I have enjoyed mine a lot. I have about 500 trouble free rounds thru it now.
Man I want one
Love the shield 9. Out of all my carry guns (Glock 19 gen3, Kahr PM9, HK P2000SK .40 LEM, Shield 9), I shoot it the most accurately.
Very natural to shoot, the only slight negative in my mind is the manual safety, which slightly digs into the web of my hand during shooting.
Three ladies shot it today. They were all pretty good with it. All liked it.
I think it's going to be a keeper.
Go Hokies!!! VT!
My Shield .40 is now my primary CCW pistol, with Federal 165 gr HST.
My G26 is feeling kinda lonely, lately.
Not for me, you can buy them all.
Why don't you like it?
I'm as interested in informed negative opinions as informed positive opinions.
I'm with Buck.
Why don't you like the Shield!?!?!?!?!?!?
