    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...

    For a small gun like that, definitely 9. 40 is unpleasant in all but the larger size of carry guns.

    YOU should get what you want. I would get the 9mm.

    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.

    OMG! You sold the CM for a Block???? And you were just asking / concerning how Shield conceal under a shirt?!?!?!?

    Funny! I reserve my 2 Blocks for winter carry! And the 2 Kahrs are for summer months....... and you went with a Block

    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!

    no other gun in this size comes even close to the trigger in the shield. which also makes it more accurate and controllable.
    two pistols similar in size to the Shield with better triggers and comparable accuracy. Walther PPS and Bersa BP 9CC.
    Smith & Wesson is actually late to the game with the Shield.....not the trend setter.

    I personally do not care for the PPS grip. I've looked at them many times (and have owned Walthers in the past)
