Lineman, I am over 80 & my wife can't wait for me to get my order of Frog Lube. Do you put it on after you shower? I do still get a lot of shooting practice in & am looking forward to trying my Shield.

Figured I had better make that a little more clear.

Before shower, during shower, after shower.....I love Frog Lube!

No need to tell me that I'm not right!

I had to return my 9mm to S&W the spring is defective. It is not the same size consistently and the rear edge does not sit correctly on the rod. It has damaged the frame, note it has approx 50 rds thru it and not taken down by me this is the way it came from the factory. The slide should not require that much force and should definitely not grind the last 1/4 inch to lock open.

When I got my shield, the first thing I noticed was it was just covered in oil and had pieces of cardboard dust in it (there was a plug inserted so the slide was open the whole time). I took mine apart to clean it and noticed difficulty getting the take down arm back up. That last 1/4 of an inch (maybe 1/8 of an inch) is really rough and did make a slight grinding noise.
Everything looked to be seated correctly though. I'll have to break it down again and take another look.
