    Might also take a look at the Bersa BP CC 9mm.

    I agree - that's what I carry too. After you shoot the Bersa you'll get rid of the Shield.

    i've practiced with it like that and again have no complaints.

    Are you able to fire a second and third round when shooting from within the holster like that, or does the slide bind, restricting you to one shot?

    Thanks!
    Instead of looking for a gun that is most like your Shield Id look for a gun that will be small enough for deep cover. Your back up, or the gun you will carry while your primary is sick or at the cleaners! Look for something that complements the shield. DR

    It appears your shield is in, but if you are still looking for another, I also say the Taurus 709 slim. My wife and I have them as carry guns and they are nice. Can't beat the 279$ either.

    Being that I have shot all the ones listed. I prefer the Bersa BP9CC. Just LOVE the trigger and feel of the gun. But as with guns my saying is "it's all ice cream, everyone has their favorite flavor".

    yeah I have to side with all of those recommending the Bersa pistols.. either the Thunder 9 UC Pro (which I have an early model of as an EDC), the 45 UC Pro, or the wonderful and all new BP9CC...

    The BP9CC as you can see from the pics above, is a beautiful pistol and is a good substitute for those who cant find or get their hands on a Shield.
