Big Steve My Shield 9 is one of the best CC gun I’ve ever owned. I usually CC my XDS .45, but when I’m in a 9mm mood, the Shield gets the nod. I also have a Shield .40 that I carried for a coupla years before I started migrating away from .40’s.

Both my sons carry Shield 9’s off duty, and my wife carries Shield 9. None of us ever had a seconds trouble out of any of them.

BTW, I also would never put a WML on my CC pistol. But there are lights that work on the Shield.

Hoka-hey Thanks guys for your input . a Smith is on the way.
Being a Ruger fan it was tough not getting that but my son has a S&W and likes it.

Cuteandfuzzybunnies I have a keltec pf9. It’s small but I hate shooting it. I prefer my walther PPS m2

Jack Swilling The LC9s Pro 17 ounces
M&P 21 ounces

LC9s Pro
Great trigger
Great accuracy
Great reliability
It is no wonder Hickok45 carries one

NCalHippie I bought the M&P Shield in .40 so I can get a 9mm barrel and mags for it and have the option of either.

Klbsa I have a shield .45 and I know its almost the same size as the 9...... Carries well. Nice thin shape. I also have an ecs9 (the striker fired version of the lc9) and its possible the perfect concealed carry weapon (shape wise that is).

I think the shield is a few oz heavier and a tad bit bigger..... I cant comment on which shoots better as I have never shot the shield 9mm..... Only the .45 (which is snappy but pretty accurate).

The if the lc9 shoots anything like the ec9 I can tell you that the accuracy is so so.

That is how he rolls
But I thought we were talking budget single-stack 9s
The shield is 1/10th of an inch taller, 1/10th of an inch longer, and .05 inches wider. I donít think the M&P can be called ďchunkyĒ.

FotoTomas I have owned both the Shield and Ruger. I prefer my Glock 43 and Kahr PM9.

None of my pocket pistols and revolvers have a light. All of my belt pistols do but not the belt revolvers. I like the idea of a weapon light for home defense but have not tried to equip my pocket rockets. One day the right combination might change my mind but as an old [email protected] my worries have not yet lead me down that path.

But think about it this way:

If you need a light on your full sized pistol.... Why would you not want one on your backup!?!

Yes, I also carry a hand held.

First off if I’m carrying my small gun I am doing so to eliminate bulk. So the light is a problem. And if I’m carrying my gun, I’ve got my flashlight and knife also as part of my edc.

For home defense however I may be in bed in boxers , a t shirt or even naked. So no EDC light. I do keep a light next to the bed and my Go to duty gun for home defense has a laser on it BUT I could see having a light on that gun since I don’t need an easy to carry holster etc.

Also I don’t want to point a gun at somebody when using my light out in public. That’s a felony if done wrong. However in d somebody comes crashing through the door , in my state , I am justified to point or pull the trigger.

Honestly i am not a fan of weapon lights on pistols. Love em on a long gun. Just not so much a pistol.

I'm in agreement with you as I also generally carry a separate flashlight.

I live past the power lines.

I use lights daily and weapon moun Ted lights often.

when I'm here I have a larger pistol (with a light, currently pretty happy with O light rechargeables, but Streamlight and Surefires that have been worth me for years on stand by) on my belt, but if I need a backup gun....


Not telling you what to do, just consider the situations you might be down to a pocket pistol. (The G27 in my pocket has a TRL-6 on it. I sometimes go lazy 'in town' with just that and a shield. )

YMMV

That (lack) would be a deal breaker for me.

I've had a few pass through my hands but already had the shield.

They weren't the only firearms-related retailer who had it happen. IIRC, the issue was with the processing company rather than the individual retailers.

PSA has really upped their game over the years following Sandy Hook. They aren't always the cheapest, but always warrant at least taking a look.

Revmgt Given the choice of the two there is no choice, S&W Shield. The shield is a single stack M&P, and the M&P is carried by cops across this country.
11-11-2019 05:43 AM
thess02 I own an EC9s and couldn't be more pleased with it. I did install a $10 neoprene grip sleeve on it though. I've also picked up 6 extra Ruger magazines on sale for $15 each. My EC9s has been absolutely reliable and with a MUCH BETTER trigger than the Shield.

Yup I saw that. I told my son about it and he bought from them a couple of years back but then had his credit card compromised ..makes me a bit leery.
CC made things right .
Anyone had recent experience with Palmetto...probably was just a rouge employee.

Son said they make it in a 45 also but more money then I want to spend and I wonder how hard that would be to control.?
I’ve never had anything bad from PSA. They are also a very pro 2a company i am proud to support.

It might have been from somewhere else that it was compromised. I had a customer swear to god we abused her CC number or an implored did it. But we didn’t have even if we wanted to. I took the card and it’s encrypted at the terminal. Hers probably got picked up by a reader in her wallet.

The good thing about CC transactions( as opposed to say debit ) is that the CC company basically has to make it right. And they really don’t mind since they just charge back the merchant most of the time.
