    Nice videos. I especially appreciate the focus on the trigger. Thanks for sharing.

    I took my new Shield to the range for the first time today. I shot some 115g WWB, 115g Fiocchi FMJ, and Federal 147g HST. All worked perfectly.

    I was shooting low and to the right, but that is me not the gun; my wife shot it too and she was dead on.

    That brings me to my big mistake, letting her shoot it. She REALLY likes the Shield. I may have to buy another or face losing mine.

    Nice to see, but how can you drop "Ironically I almost had to pull the other day" without a followup?

    And I have to agree on the recoil handling...I first got mine out to the range right after shooting an IPSC match with a full-size M&P and was fully expecting more of a battering, not the typical smooth M&P recoil that the Shield maintained.

    Great review and insight about the new M&P shield. I have both the fullsize M&P9 and M&P357Sig/40S&W and both fit me perfectly so much so I EDC the M&P357Sig with the Crimson Trace Laser Grip.

    Very correct. The trigger is worlds better than the original M&P triggers. Just wish I could get the same trigger in my M&P 40C now


    PS: great videos, you spend time on them and it shows

    Nice report! I'm very much interested in this firearm, and you've helped me get closer to a purchase. I only have to decide which gun it will replace.

    the same happened to me.. I went to the store/range, got my shield and shoot it side by side with my m&p9 FS.. I was expecting more recoil and I almost almost didnt feel the difference... maybe with some +p or 147gr could be more noticeable...but feels smooth...

    Fine review of a new compact with great potential. You were very well prepared and did a fine job of presenting the information in a clear and concise manor. Well done and welcome to the forum!

    lol...Guy approaches me in the parking lot asking a random question. I walk the other way and he follows. I motion towards my gun and he gets the point and does an about face in the other direction.

    I wouldn't say the trigger is tons better than the original M&P trigger. I think it's about as good as one of the original triggers that has had a 1k round trigger job.

    Great vid- thanks. I love my Shield and it fits just fine in a Bear River holster that I had made for my G26, no problem.

    Well, I suppose the reset is better on the new trigger, but it's not as much better as S&W was bragging. And honestly I never had a problem with the reset on the regular M&Ps, so maybe it's just not something I'm particularly sensitive to.
