    Bought my second Shield today...

    But I still don't have one.

    I bought the first in the spring for my son's graduation gift, I got the other one this afternoon for my other son for Christmas gift.

    Man, I'm glad I don't have kids. I found one online today and I'm keeping it all for myself. :-P

    On a more serious note, it definitely shows how much you love your sons to come across 2 Shields and give them as gifts considering how scarce they are at the moment. I hope your sons appreciate the gesture.

    They def do. My oldest has been eyeing a Taurus 709 (I think thats it) because the Shield is out of his price range so my dad and I went together to get him the Shield.

    Now should he by the Taurus before Christmas, I can't return sooo....I'd have to keep it :(

    I was under the impression that human trafficking was somewhat illegal these days


    Seriously though, I have yet to hold a shield, but from what I have heard about them it is definitely a firearm I'd like to tryout soon.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Well good Lord. I've been waiting for seven weeks for one to come in. Could be another seven before I see it.

    Heh, wouldn't that be a kick in the nuts if he did buy the 709 before Christmas. That's a very good gun, but I prefer the Shield.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    I have the 709 and want the shield. I had the 709 and the finish started coming off, the slide. as soon as I an put a shield in the holster I am going to strip and polish the 709 and use it for a BUG.
