    New M&P 9 Just Got a New Little Brother!

    I've just had the M&P 9 for a couple of weeks, but I handled the Shield the day it was released, and it's been calling to me ever since. Couldn't resist any longer, so today I went and got it. Weather permitting, I'll run a box through it tomorrow.

    You're killing me bro. I just got my FS M&P 9 about 6 or so weeks ago and I'm already Jones'n for the Shield.

    Tomorrow, I'm gonna go try and find one at the local stores and hope to get to handle one.

    Congrats on the new guns!

    Congrats!

    And I love the pic. I was wondering about the difference between the full size M&P and the Shield.

    I did the same thing, bought a M&P9c a couple of weeks ago and loved it so much I added its little brother. I am very impressed with the Shield.

    I think I must have gone to the wrong school: you guys always seem to have $ laying around just waiting to purchase a new gun! What, if any, is your secret? And I promise I won't tell another soul.

    Well, I found one, got one, and so far, I Really Love It!

    I couldn't stand to wait any longer. I'm glad I took the plunge.

    I just brought a Shield home from a gun show today. I ran 50 rounds through it a couple of hours ago, and I am thoroughly impressed with every aspect of this little gun! I took a look at the Shield because I wanted a "thinner Glock", but because of how impressed I am with this gun, I might have to take another look at the entire M&P line.

    I hate to admit this, but I am not sure what the difference between the regular M&P9c and the M&P Shield is. Can someone explain this?

    The Shield is a single stack - a lot slimmer than the 9c. It's about 1/2" shorter & three ounces lighter. Holds 7+1 (8+1 w/extended mag) vs. 12+1 for the 9c:

    M&P SHIELD - Smith & Wesson

    Product: Smith & Wesson M&P Compact 9mm

    Hope this helps.

    Jim
