    Got a Shield today!

    Saturday my hubby and I went gun shopping - big suprise no Shields available (we did get a Rock Island 1911 though) I considered an XDs but wasn't sure - if it was already out in 9 I wouldn't have thought twice. But I've regretted for a year that I didn't buy a Shield last year when I had money to spend, so I had my heart set on that. They said they were expecting some middle of the week. So today I was out bouncing around local stores and I called the one I was at Sat to see if they had them in yet. Not yet. Before heading home from that side of town I pulled up their Faebook page and the truck had just come in!! So I went over walked to the S&W counter and asked for a Shield - They asked .9 or .40? WOW?! I have a choice?! So I bought the 9mm and headed right over to the range. It'll take a little getting used to shooting a smaller gun, I'm so used to my XDsc I wasn't thrilled with my shooting, but was perfectly happy with that little gun. only time to put a couple mags through it but I couldn't go home without shooting it! Brought it home, cleaned it and yeah...pinked it up just a little. Now to get a holster...

    That's awesome. You'll love! I dig mine and shoot the heck out of it. I use the FoxX Trapp for IWB holster and really dig that as well. Happy shooting (when you can get the ammo) and keep your powder dry!

    Congrats, I really like mine, and I have an XDsc also, the shield is so much nicer to carry all day, I just put a set of Talon Grips (the rubber ones not the granulate) on mine and it feels alot better in the hand.

    Congratulations, Lish! Glad that worked out for you. And you've made it yours with the pink.

    Very nice!

    I've been looking for one myself, but they're like unicorns in my area... although I could've bought one at a recent gun show for... (wait for it)... $700!!

    You did good. Congrats!

    Congratulations! I am jealous. I am number 18 on a waiting list for the Shield!

    After you've shot several hundred rounds, could you report back on your experience? I am curious about the recoil since it is a smaller and lighter gun. Thanks and have some fun!

    I know. I was going to preface my reply with "In the words of..." but I couldn't remember where I had seen it.

    In all seriousness, congrats Lish on the purchase. It's a great gun and one that I hope will eventually become my EDC.
