    Got one at a gun show in DEC. took me about 3 weeks to find one once I decided I wanted one $399.00 Good firearm.
    Good luck Hope you get one I think you'll like it. But going to take some aggressive creative looking. Think outside the box. I did who knew it be at a crowded gun show.

    Well, I've been on the search for a M&P Sheild and all the LGS are allocated only. I was in Ft. Meyers last week and picked up a real nice Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm sub compact for about the same price of my M&P a couple + years ago. Got tired of waiting for S&W.

    S&W said they'd be ramping up production at the beginning of the new year. But, they're back ordered at some places up to one year. We should see orders being filled relatively soon, and occasionally one pop up at local shops.

    I found one at a local sporting goods store here and jumped on it. After reading all the reviews I decided to go with the shield over the LC9. Plus being I haven't been able to find either until yesterday helped make the decision. I paid $429 for mine.

    Have to humbly disagree with you here. How many OTHER manufacturers announce something which isn't seen, sometimes for years, in a store? I ordered my Shield the afternoon it was announced and had it within 2 days.

    And from what I hear, they're manufacturing at capacity at the moment.

    As for the OP...best bet might be to find a store willing to order one and not gouge you and get on a waiting list.

    I feel your pain. I'm not sure where you're shopping but here Gary's and Scheel's have practically no handguns left at all, much less the popular ones.

    A new gun store in Paris KY had two 9s yesterday. $530. I'd love to get my wife one but not at markup.

    Visited a local pawn shop today that carries a very good inventory of new guns. They had two Shields in .40. Considering they were asking $650 ea, the $475 I paid for mine last year is looking a lot better.

    Well I have it down to two choices....the shield or the G26..having a lot of trouble deciding.....the only good thing is with either one I seem to have some time to think on it before I can lay hands on either one.
    There are two types of people who carry concealed weapons...Responsible ones and Irresponsible ones...which are you...
