    Got me a shield !!!

    So I just happened to stumble into a great deal on a M&P Shield last night. I got a Shield 9mm with low round count ( less than 200), 2 mags ( 7 and 8 rnd) all original packaging and a ball and JHP ammo. I traded my LCR .38 and some ammo, and a hundred bucks cash. I would have preferred an even trade but i am stoked to have a shield, as I have wanted on since before they came out. Cant wait to get it to the range.

    Make sure your new gun isn't effected by the recall. Sticky on the site & a few posts about it.

    Just remember that it's not a slide release, it's a lock back lever. Pull the slide to load the breach. When I had it in my hands I found that trying to release the slide was really hard. That and having to dig inside the mag well to flip the disassemble lever turned me off. S&W Shield - Disassembly, Cleaning, Reassembly and Function Check - YouTube

    Just make sure it is not loaded and pull the trigger like a Glock.

    Nice! If I were getting a single-stack 9mm, that'd be my first choice (except for a sig p938, but that's almost twice the price). Sounds like a fair deal.
