    ... I will add that I have had one in my hands a month back and was able to really fondle it and dry fire it. I was also able to get various other guns in its size out and lay them a top each other and really examine the differences and feels with about four or five other Subcompact 9mm's. But it was a .40 so I passed on it in the end... and was almost regretting doing so. But now I am glad I held out.

    I am pretty sure it will be a keeper. But nothing lost if I don't like it. They are in enough demand I can flip it for what I paid for it including tax I think. I don't like gougers so don't suggest I do that. If I don't like it, it will pass along to the next guy/gal for $420 which would be with tax added.

    I really love my Shield. It's primarily a BUG but I do carry it as a primary from time to time. It has functioned flawlessly with at least 6 or 7 different brands and bullet types. It gobbles up my 147 gr Federal HST carry rounds.

    It is very easy to manage and shoot accurately.

    I'm going to be putting the new Trijicon HD's on my Shield and M&P full size at income tax time.

    I have a 40 Cal Shield. Love the feel of it, and it shoots well. Easy to hide too. I'd say, for 375.00 you're getting a heck of a deal. With either the 9mm or the 40S&W caliber, you can't go wrong.
    Let us know how you made out.

    Here is a quick comparison for you. Just a poor phone cam shot of the Shield compared to a Bersa Thunder CC. I just chose the Bersa as it was handy to grab.



    In this case I laid the Bersa CC over the Shield.



    I haven't looked up the specs but the Shield actually feels just a tad lighter unloaded.

    for those that can't find a Shield. Bersa BP 9CC is 8+1 and has just a tad longer grip than the Shield.
    Trigger has a much better reset than the M&P anything. Polyganol rifling....this thing is a tack driver.
