Now comes the hard part, 9 or 40? The lgs has a 40 in stock but I'm leaning towards the 9.
Your call of course, I prefer 9mm as well though.
Yeah I'll probably wait for the 9. That's hard when the 40 is sitting right there!
as for which to carry 9 vs 40, we all know its placement trumps caliber
you are the best judge for what you like or need or want
for me id take the shield in 40 to the range only enough to maintain competence.
as a 9 it would go in the fun to shoot catagery along with SD.
i think it is a bit light and small to learn the 40 with.
but if you are good with that cartrage already and want the percieved edge...
Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them
For a small gun like that, definitely 9. 40 is unpleasant in all but the larger size of carry guns.
An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.
Yes I imagine the 9 is much easier to control. Several friends gave me hell for getting my xd in 9 and I just told them I shoot it better.
How does the shield compare to the kahr cw45? Yes I know one is 9 and the other 45 but as fare as height of the two guns. I carry a cw45 but have a little trouble with the grip being a little long and printing. I intend to look at a shield and compare but none of the shops in my area can keep one in. I had to add my name to weighting list. Any thoughts?
Whoops, I chose none of the above since this deal just popped up on armslist. Gen 3 g23 with mepro night sights. Who knows, maybe I'll get a shield someday.
I know right? I haven't gotten my iwb holster yet but I feel like with how thin this it should be fine. Just needs a good belt!
Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
