    But I got out today to shoot it and my Walther PPS may be taking a back seat to this one. I enjoyed shooting it!!!

    I've had mine for 2 months now, and the more I tinker with it, the more I like it. Very close in size and concealability to my old PF9, plus it's a .45 ;-) Ideal for jacket pocket and IWB carry. Shoots right to point of aim, and an easy shooter. It feels nearly perfect in the hand. It would be nice to maybe have a few more rounds (I've been a faithful Glock Guy for years), but thinking things over, it's the same number of rounds I had with my old Army .45, so I've just gotten more scrupulous about carrying a spare magazine. It's quickly becoming my primary carry weapon.

    Many thanks to the friendly folks here who stirred my interest in this tool...

    Hi all,
    I also have the M&P Shield 9mm with the Tritium night sights and no safety SKU: 10086 (also comes with an extra 8 round mag: One 7 and two 8's)
    https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearm...m-night-sights

    After S&W's current rebate of $75.00 I paid $344.00 for my Shield!
    The First 700 rounds was with Remington UMC 115g FMJ (taking advantage of Remington's rebate)
    I now have 1000 rounds of Blazer Brass 124g FMJ (sku: 5201) arriving today.
    So far my Shield has been perfect and I do not expect that to change.

    I also got a holster for it from Aegis Armory: http://aegisarmory.us/
    A friend of mine has the Shield 9mm and has carried it in the Aegis Armory "Shield Hybrid Holster" for the last year.
    He said that the holster holds his 9 snug but easy to draw, he also said that it has been very comfortable from day one as Aegis Armory claims...
    You can check out the Aegis Armory Shield Hybrids reviews on youtube.

    I'm still waiting for my Concealed Carry License to carry my Shield but the holster has been comfortable around the house...LOL!
    You don't know how many times (or maybe you do) I have wanted to carry my Shield Out and About BUT I know without my Carry License that could be a really really BAD MOVE!
    I'll just have to wait for Florida to do it's thing!

    Two BIG Thumbs Up for the Shield
