    Mas,

    I'm wondering if you have seen or shot the new M&P Shield, and if so what are your thoughts about it? Does it have features you consider important for carry? Does the limited 7-8 round count seem to be an issue from your point of view?

    Thanks in advnace,
    Tommato

    Saw and felt it at the NRA annual meeting a week ago,but haven't shot it. Thinner than regular M&P, and trigger feels better. Doesn't have replacement backstraps but probably doesn't need them. Strikes me as a little big for pocket carry but sweetly sized for inside the waistband and under the shirt. Having spent so much of my life carrying 1911s, single stack capacity doesn't bother me, but YMMV.

    Best,
    Mas
