M&P Shield
« on: October 04, 2012, 03:22:52 PM »
Anyone own one?  I held one about a month ago and I really liked it.  It was $400 and seemed reasonable. I've read some reviews and it seems like a pretty good gun.

I previously had a PF9.   That was compact but had a sharp kick to it.  Anyone else have experience with the shield?

I've shot one and will own one when S&W gets caught up with production.  A little softer shooting than the PF-9 and a lot nicer trigger.  I have to admit though that my PF-9 (my dirt bike riding gun) has run 100% and is accurate to boot.

Well, if you're looking for a Shield right now, they have them at Basin Sports in Vernal.  Just means you'll have to travel out there.  On the good side, it means you can try out the Buckskins Hills Range.

I carry a Shield and i love it.  Great trigger, not a really jerky recoil like most of the smaller guns, and very concealable.  Highly recommend it!

I went in to my local gun store and took a few guns out a few months ago.  This was one of them.  I liked the way it shot, but just didn't feel right in the hand for me. I ended up going with the Glock G19 Gen 4. This is a solid gun though.
