New Shield Guy

Hey all,

I had the chance a few weeks ago to rent a couple of single stack, EDC 9mm's and walked away very impressed with the Shield

Shopped around a bit online for a good price, ordered one last week and it arrived at my FFL yesterday

Been shooting since I was a kid and have had a bit of everything in my safe before, though this will be my first M&P series pistol. I'd say I don't know why it took me so long, but with the prices on Shields right now, combined with the rebate, I'd say it was worth the wait

Now I just have to decide if I'm going to buy a second 9mm or add a 45 to the mix

Welcome Aboard!

I too have the Shield only in .40 (and a few other M&P's) and absolutely love it. They're really sweet shooters and very easy and comfortable to carry concealed.

Enjoy your new acquisition!

Welcome...!!!!
If it were me, i would add the 45 shield. Oh man what a hole that 45acp makes...lol.
The 45 shield is a sweet gun to shoot... soft recoil for its size... beats anything in its class.
