    Pretty sure I saw a pig fly by...

    In an unusual turn of events, I ended up purchasing a Shield 9mm today...after months of searching...waiting...finally.
    I was calling a LGS about something else; ammo, which they ALSO had. And I made a half joking comment about, "someday, i'll get a shield.." and they guy was like..."it could be today.."

    Cant believe it.

    Upside: a Shield and some 9mm ammo.

    Downside: you're gonna have to learn to do the Macarena.


    Congratulations on the new acquisition. Pics, pics, pics.

    Around here they have been IMPOSSIBLE. I have literally never seen one in any of our LGS (we have about 8 within driving distance). I know they have been getting a few but they just vanish. Ticket systems, over night campers, friends of friends, etc. I travel pretty frequently in the midwest and I always take time to scout lgs in the towns I pass through...zero luck. Its been crazy.

    Congratulations! I haven't been able to find one under $490 anywhere (or 9mm ammo under 50¢ a round).

    Our area is lucky to have one of the best lgs you could ask for. They are HUGE and have some serious buying/selling power. I got my shield for $379. Throughout this entire buying frenzy their prices have maintained.

    There are a few off brand and Taurus handguns to be had at the LGS in my area but at outrageous prices. Gander Mountain has a good selection but again rather pricey. I would guess the majority of people who are in need of a handgun are still pretty selective in what they buy and it appears they are overlooking the low end guns.

    I gave up on a Shield and got a 9c. And figured I was lucky to get it.

    Well done on your Shield.
