New toy bought last week....

I seen a M & P Shield 9mm before Christmas, loved the feel of it. I had to wait a while after the holidays for the wife to agree to another purchase. I went last week and bought me one. I have accumulated several different brands of 9mm ammo to break it in with. It is a big brother to my Bodyguard 380. Going to try and get to the range soon with it. I have found out the 9mm ammo is a little cheaper than the 380.

Congrats Markie....

I had two Shields, my 9mm that I carried for a couple of years and then the 40 which I couldn't hit a thing with so I sold it...

Easiest gun that I ever had to take apart and never had an issue with either of them...

Congrats, it's a good sub-compact handgun. I've had one for awhile, only have about 700 rounds fired with mine. But it's been reliable and will do the job as a carry gun. Mine has not been used much since I got a Glock 43 though.

Here is a pick of the G43 and Shield 9 next to one another for comparison.

I have a friend that has a Shield in a .40. He likes his.

I am sure you will enjoy yours.

They are easy to take apart, I was amazed when I did mine to clean and oil it. At first I thought, it can't be..I you tubed a break down on my laptop and was watching it when I did...easy. Heck, was reading the instructions from the manual and thought..might as well see it done. Can't wait to see what it will do.

I had mine timed down to 18 seconds to take apart and it would shoot anything that I put in it...

At 19 oz and less than an inch thick you can't tell if that's your gun or cell phone on your hip..

I bought one a ways back and love it too. Easy to break down, though not as easy as the XDm.

I had initial misgivings regards the tight slide lock and stiff and spongy trigger but all is nice and smooth after break in. No mechanical issues at all. It could use some good sights and Talon grips though...it's a little like holding onto a greased pig

I convinced my wife that we needed three so if one had to be sent off for repairs, we still had two. I love to shoot her Kimber Micro Carry, better with it at a distance.
