Bought New Shield Performance Center

Guy's Saturday I went to my LGS and one of the guy's there picked out the Shield Performance Center 9mm to show me.
I really have never been interested in the performance Center model due to the porting. I took a look at the pistol and although I could care less about the porting I did really like the looks of this pistol and it felt good in the hand.
I looked it up Sunday and studied it, and today (Monday 7-25-2016) I went and bought it. Great looking Pistol, does not conceal in my pocket as easy as my G43 or G26 (Little bit bigger than those guns) but does conceal pretty easily in my pocket. Plus I like the safety for pocket carry. I like it and can't wait till this weekend to get it out on my range. Work sucks during the week, no time for fun.

Congrats; they're fine shooters, and you will notice the porting when shooting double and triple taps. The ports are little, but they work.

I have one myself for my "when the back's out" gun.

Yep went to buy one for the wife and ended up get one for myself. Love the fiber optic sites and a great CC with a IWB. Porting lets you get back on target quickly with less muzzle flip.

I was going to replace the sights for good night sights, but after the range today those fiber optics just are to easy to see. I might have to buy the fiber optic night sights that are out there.
