Cant ever decide which one i like to carry the most though, they both blow the bullseyes right out of the targets, and are equal accurate at 50ft all day long. But my PC has a much nicer trigger.
G43... felt violent when I rented it. But no pinky extension may have done it... it was hurting my pinky.

After 2 shields, it got me looking at the 9C...

Wont argue that teeee, the shield is far softer shooting no doubt,
but i still like the G43 for how accurate it is and absolutely no hic-up`s ever.
Like my shields, the G43 is does NOT care what i feed it.

Absolutely, the pinky extention DOES make a difference...!
I put the pearse +1 pinky base`s on all of my G43 mags...world of difference.

If you`re interested in the 9C, i would hold out for the 9C M2.0 for two reasons.
1) the M2.0 in compact will be out soon, does have some nicer features.
2) the 1.0 9C will be very cheap to buy AFTER the M2.0 9C is released.

All depends on what your willing to spend vs what you can do without

Larry, you are right on the Shield. It is a beautiful shooting little gun & On my first outing with it I put about 46 out of 50 shots in the 9 & 10 ring. The Shield is ported with the PC trigger & both help a lot.

The 9c was slightly softer shooting but the trigger, tho very good was harder. It was at least 7#. I shot both with no pinky extension & was surprised that it did not bother me at all. I did use both, but my shots were good with both.

If I had to choose, I would take the Shield, but it is nice to have both. No matter what is said, I really like the XDs9 too & did some great shooting with it.

And this is my first shots with the XDs with Big Dot sights. The target is a 3" black circle & I love the Big Dot sights with 86 year old eyes. They have held up real good because I have really used them doing home design & building ship models.

9c

I've loved mine. I shoot much better after changing to the Ameriglo Front Tritium Night Sight, with a blank rear sight. Its so much easier for my bad eyes to pick up. Also using a XGRIP with a 17rd M&P full size mag. The combo gives a lot more grip, making it great for rapid fire combat ranges.

The ported PC Shield is really worth the extra money & the trigger is super. I seem to do nearly the same shooting with any decent gun, but I sure haven't shot over a hundred rounds at one time , except for a 32 PPK in a long time. The Shield & the M&P 9c let me do that.

Thank you larry. You should see our new range, but I used to love to shoot in the back yard, until the place grew up.

I hear you Gene... its getting harder to find places to shoot anymore... we`re simply an over populated country now, and infested with liberals that dont want you to own guns or shoot them. I`ve lived in the same place for almost 4 decades, people moving in closer and closer all the time. Eventually, i will lose the use of my private range here... when that happens, hopefully i`ll find another place to live. Gun ranges are ok, but there`s NOTHING like having the option to shoot whenever you want in your own back yard. Just like everything else, we are being stripped of our privacy within our own properties. Gene, THATS not freedom..! I work up alotta loads all the time, its nice to go out to my back yard range and run a few test rounds instead of packing up to go to a range down the road just to test a couple rounds. We are ALL, being corralled in to these gun ranges, that way they know who you are and where you come from and how many guns you have. What do you think will be next. I dont think i have to tell you. We`re just a bunch of wild horse`s getting fenced in, and controlled.

I agree, having both standard and ported. Difference is minimally noticeable which is why I started with the standard, but noticeable enough to be worth it. I'm trying 100-063 in the Standard soon.

Tell me about it and some charge too much in my opinion. Down the street is $20. I go a little bit further to pay $10 but I dislike indoor.

GreenT , How is the trigger on the unported compared to the ported, also how about racking & recoil. At 86, I have no finger or hand strength left. Racking is the most important to me.

Get used to the crowd boys. In WW2 we only had 137 million in the country. Now what is it, around 350 or 360 million.

The world can not sustain at the rate of the growing population. Eventually, people will starve to death, not to mention, there WILL BE murdering everywhere over food. We dont have a gun problem we have a people problem. Just to many people.

Sorry, didnt mean to steer of track... carry on folks

Pulling parallel to the bore as close to mid trigger, my standard 9 is 6# 10.4oz with 485 rounds through it. The ported is 5# 15.1oz with 200 rounds through so far.

At this point, both slides feel similar, but both were tough at first-- my money is on the springs needing lubrication and to be worn in.

The un-ported Shield became my gf's and she likes Talon grip tape on the serrations to help her rack it.

I finally took some pictures to put on of my new 9c with the Talon I put on it & the first target I shot. I shot 120 rounds the first time out . That is a record for me lately. Here is the 9c with Talon on the grooves.
