    Officially a TWO Shield household now :)

    FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY got my second 9mm Shield. Been looking for 2 months now..

    FINALLY!

    Selling my PX4 to cover the cost... Officially taking a hiatus from gun buying now. Been buying for years. Now, gonna start taking some vacations... Obviously, keeping my Beretta 92s, though, and my pair of PS90s :)

    I have some sort of complex with having multiples of the same gun!

    I have a 9mm Shield on the way. Sold a .40 Shield to get it. I am pumped. Have a Coachg Kydex iwb holster and a couple of his mag carries also on the way. I think I might get some XS sights and put them on it.

    Just curious, why did you sell the .40 in favor of the 9mm? Wondering 'cause I am looking at both but have not made up my mind as yet.

    I had the opportunity to compare the Shield and the Walther PPS in 9mm. In the end I chose the PPS but the Shield is a nice weapon. It just didn't fit my hand as well as the PPS.

    See, I have looked at the PPS ever since it first came out. For me, its the opposite. I never liked the PPS grip

    Very nice, always good to have a comparable gun for your off hand for the zombie apocalypse!

    I would have kept the Storm, I think you may kick yourself later.


    Glad you like the shield tho'.
    I tend to favor S&W myself.

    I had a PX4 in 9mm before. I'm fine with it. I have nine Beretta 92s... I prefer that platform over the PX4.

    Actually, still have the storm, though. I just posted the classified ad tonight

    Congrats on the new 'twinship'!

    When I moved from New England to AZ 9 years ago I got caught up in a buying jag. Didn't go nuts with it, but the collection certainly filled out. Now I have 'almost enough' to choose from, and I'm concentrating on various improvement and "rehabilitation" projects which require substantial funding. There's the Detective Special waiting for the call from Grant Cunningham (Colt wheelgun guru) to go over it; the Smith M63 needs a trigger job; the Mosin-Nagant twins are getting cleaned up and stocks re-done; the CZ-75 is awaiting a trip to Angus Hobdel's Custom Shop; the Marlin 336 needs to get its action slicked up; the M77 deer rifle has a trigger issue; on and on, so it goes.

    And a passion for multiples of the same gun? How about FIVE Ruger 10/22s? A pair of S&W M64s? Three 1911s? (Not to mention bmcgilvrays' countless S&W Model 10s...) Welcome to the club!

    :) But, you have no idea how many miles I have travelled and how many trips and calls I have put in to get BOTH of these. I have spent the last 2 months looking everywhere for a second.

    I passed on one at Gander Mountain last week because the front sight was all screwed up...

    Even drove 90 minutes today to go to a Houston gunshow... 1st one in line... Saw three Shields there... Two in 40 cal and just ONE in 9mm.

    They wanted $499 for these things. OUCH!

    I saw the 9mm one at $499, so I zipped around the entire show in like 2 minutes to look and see if I could find one cheaper. Couldn't - that was the ONLY 9mm one.

    When I come back - some lady is buying the damn thing I was gonna get... I was pretty angry for like an hour...

    But, on the way back home, I stopped at another shop in Houston and got one for $449. I paid $395 for my first one. But after searching 2 months and putting in all the time and miles - I paid the extra $50 just so I could be done with it.
