+1 on this. Not a fan of the Kahr personally (didn't like the trigger on my CM9) but they are fine guns and very cost effective. Though technically the CW9 will be closer size wise to the Sheild. New they are $375 at my local gun shop. I bet you could find one on armslist or something used for under $300.

The M&P 9c is about as close to a Shield as you can get as far as how it feels and shoots. Just a little thicker. I have one and like it just fine, I do prefer my shield.
The Ruger LC9 is the same size as the shield, I have one of them also, and never had any problem with it.
