A lesson learned the hard way

I can now point to my pinky and show you how much shorter the grip on a Shield 9 is compared to a 9 M2.0.

Yesterday night I was switching back and forth at the range. Loaded up a bunch of mags for each and started with the m2.0 and went through those mags and switched to the Shield 9. While changing mags my pinky got between the grip and the lip of the mag and gave me a nice blood blister marking the difference in the size of the grips.

I've done that a couple of times, but not with a Shield (so far, anyway).

It was just painful enough that I do not need to do it a second time

I'll live and be a little wiser for it.
