Ran my Shield through a grueling class in a sand pit
I am not affiliated with this company, but took their class "When Things Go Bad". Great class!
Courses « MDFI
Originally I was going to run my M&P CORE 5", but the trainer said we would get more out of using our daily carry.
I normally carry a Shield.
Took the gun out of my vehicle, no additional oil and ran the class with the gun, an IWB, and pulled magazines from my pockets.
Not one unintentional failure (we purposely set the guns up to fail as part of the drill).
I laid the gun down on the ground (shooting range was in a sand/gravel pit).
I did not oil or service the weapon during the entire day. It was so sandy though, I had to knock the sand out of the magazines before reloading them as the followers would not move.
I am extremely confident in my Shield as a carry gun now.
