I improved my Shields

Since this past April I have traded two high caliber sidearms for two NIB Shield 9mm pistols. Each of the Shield’s has operated perfectly having no mechanical failures. Both broke-in to my satisfaction.

I made two modifications to these Shield pistols. One, I replaced the factory front sight with a fiber optic front sight and blackened out dots on the rear sight. This made my accuracy measurably better. Secondly, I installed a Talon grip. This made my gripping the pistol more controlled.

These inexpensive modifications have greatly enhanced my handling of these two fine pistols.

IMO the TALON grips are a Must have them on my Shield and Ruger SR9. Sights will be next! The Shield is one fine pistol!

Both of my Shield 9's are in box stock condition. One of them lives in my primary carry stable and it is fine the way it is. I consider sidearms like the Shield to be good guns for a little deeper concealment and therefore, closer engagement should the need arise.

Smith and Wesson created a real winner in this little gun. It fits my specific need for a gun like this perfectly.

Thanks for the tip, I may try that. I had not thought to just change out the front sight. I think I might put a little dot of electrical tape on the dots on the back until I see if it reall helps me befor I black out them permanently. Which fiber optic did you choose please? thanks
