    New Home for M&P Shield 9 mm

    Today has been great! I found this unicorn and then my wife told me that we are closing on a new house in 60 days. Boy was she pissed about the gun though

    Congrats!

    I got a Shield at the weekend and it shoots and handles just like it's bigger brothers. I think you'll be happy with it.

    Congrats on the new gun and house.

    After watching the video, I hope there were enough votes to override his veto. It definitely sounded like he plans on vetoing the bill.

    The next election is in November 2014. The baboon will try to impose his amendatory veto which will hopefully fail.

    Tell her it's a house warming gift for her and your just going to hang onto it until she is ready for it.

    I hope that new home is somewhere south of the mason dixon. You can carry anywhere you want down here. And hey, we wear shoes now!

    These posts about the Shields used to piss me off, only because I wanted one so bad and could'nt find one to save my life. I now have a Shield I'm happy to say after nearly a year on the waiting list the call came in this past Friday and I ran right down there and picked it up. So please commence your talk about the Shield.

    Congratulations on the new house, but most of all DA' SHIELD!!!!

    Next time, do what I did. Wrap it up all nice and pretty, and give it to her as a gift.

    She'll get all excited, and when she opens it and asks what this is for? Then she'll say she doesn't want it.

    Then you say"well then I guess I'll have to keep it".

    If you have a good marriage, you both can laugh about it.

    If not, make sure you have a back-up plan.

    I have a good marriage. YMMV

    Sweet. I nailed me a .40 3 weeks ago. Love this gun. Funny today I went to a gun store near me in NY. I sold my Glock 23 to a store in PA. As I am looking on the shelf in the NY store low and behold my Gun that I sold in PA is on the shelf for 200.00 dollars more than what I sold it for. Small world.
    One more step and it's on!

    i think the line about forgiveness being easier to get than permission applies here.

    Greg, enjoy your new Shield. It is a fun gun to shoot...just don't limp wrist it though because then it will fail to eject. Congrats on the new home.

    She'll be glad of the gun when the dollar crashes and it's suddenly worth $2000. Plus, if you happen to be in Chicago at that point, you'll probably have to shoot your way out to avoid being eaten.
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."
