Hello

Thanks for having me! I own a .45 Shield and a M&P .45 full size, I really enjoy these pistols even though I have been an avid 1911 shooter for years.

HI

Oops, sorry I posted my introduction in the wrong place, duh!

I have been an avid 1911 enthusiast my whole life. My wife got here CCW and I bought her an M&P 9C for carrying in her purse, she hated it! She wanted one with a thumb safety and the trigger for her was impossible. She reached down and load my SA RO compact 1911 and shot out the X ring at 25 ft first time. I thought the 9C was a very nice pistol myself. I sold it and bought myself a Shield 45 with thumb safety. I love this pistol! When we went back to the range, my wife picked up the Shield and loved it! She asked me why it felt so different. I explained how much better the triggers are on the 45 Shield than the 9C as well as the grip design and stripling. Now I have ordered my full size .45, it's at the FFL as I write this but I don't get home for another week. Being from the 1911 crowd my whole life all my M&P's have the thumb safety. Thanks, great to be here!!

Welcome to our little corner of the net!

The 'New Users' forum is intended for introduction, so you posted it in exactly the right place, the only problem is you posted it twice.
