Performance Center Shield

Well, I just finished cleaning the PC Shield, and wanted to report on today's BUG shooting.

The pistol shot flawlessly, and was very easy to keep on target, including steel at 10, 20, and 30+ yards.

My only shots of the day out of all five stages that weren't "zero down" were on a swinger.

The Performance Center Shield (with the Apex Tactical striker block installed) has just taken over the title of "best shooting little gun" that I own, from my Kahr CM9.

Of extreme interest to me was today's stage of six shots fired from the retention position.

As some may know; many shooters (including me previously) feel that having a ported carry pistol is a mistake, and consequently, have little use for one. "Conventional wisdom" is that it'll blow fouling and hot gasses up into the shooter's face when fired from close in such as the one handed low retention position.

I shot the six shots from retention in 1.72 seconds "zero down," and had no discomfort from fouling, hot gasses or anything else. As a matter of fact; there was no fouling, soot, or anything else to be found anywhere on the white shirt that I was wearing.

So, another "everyone knows" is put to rest. Apparently, Smith and Wesson know a little bit about building guns after all.

Love my 9 PC too. Great Pistol. I am thinking about having my Shield 45 ported just like my PC. I have already put the same sights on the Shield 45. I would then have a matching set.

Yea everyone told me that I would end up blinded and possibly set on fire by my
PC Shield, but I'm still intact after over 1k rounds.

I have about 1200 rounds through mine since April without a single glitch. I've been carrying an HK USPC.40 since 1997 but the PC Shield is my new favorite carry gun.

I started carrying mine with some regularity when my back was giving me a lot of trouble.

After shooting it in 5-6 different BUG matches; I've continued to carry it regularly, along with 2, 3, or even 4 eight round reloads.
