The buttons on mine on my TLR6 on the Shield have lost some of their travel...they don't click in and out as much...I think it's because the holster was fitting too tight around them. I've loosened up the holster, and hopefully it will be fine. I like it so much I wold buy another if it did let go altogether. I think it's a good product.

Funny you mentioned the slide racker, I saw one on a race gun the other day, and wished I had thought of adding one to a gun for my wife. She has trouble, and that was a big issue in selecting a gun for her. The G43 is fine and she likes it, but I would have rather gotten her something different, as I don't shoot it nearly as well as I shoot the Shield...and I think she might shoot something else better given a little time.
Same here Steve, i shoot the shield`s very well, hard not hittin bullseye`s with all my shield 9`s. My wife on the other hand, has the G43, i couldn`t shoot the G43 nearly as good as she can... she hits bullseye`s all day long with it. She didnt like the shield because the slide was to hard for her to rack a round, and she couldn`t hardly hit the target with the shields either. She hates the feel and pull of the shield triggers. She has smaller hands than i do, so i can see where she`s more comfortable with the G43. As my hand doesnt fit the G43, but fits the shield`s just fine. In the end, ya shoot good if it fits you good.

Where are you guys finding the slide racker`s for the shields (?????). I haven`t been able to find any yet.

LOL, I didn't see one for the Shield. I saw it on a different gun...Never even occurred to me they probably don't make it for the Shield...Wife likes her Glock so no point in researching any further.

Any thoughts?
Tru Glo TFX Pro sights. The front sight is on a LOONNNG stem which hopefully will be far enough back from all the GSR Plume.
