    New NTS Shield.

    I loved my shield but the safety always bothered me a bit. I never kept it on and it never accidentally engaged but for some reason I just felt uneasy knowing it was there. Every other aspect of the Shield I love. I tried to like other guns in it's class such as the XDs but the grip checkering was just too aggressive for my sensitive hands . The sights on the Kahrs make my eyes go crossed. The trigger on the Bersa BP9CC is scary light. So when the rumblings of the new NTS Shield hitting the shelves started last month I contacted an LGS I deal with to keep an eye out for an NTS Shield for me. They contacted me last Thursday with the good news, my new Shield was at the shop. My TS Shield sold on Friday in less than 24 hrs on a local NC forum. So, after being Shield-less for the weekend, I picked up my new NTS Shield after work yesterday. I took a small hit between the selling price of my old Shield and the purchase price of the new one but it was worth it to me. Dry firing it, the trigger actually feels better than my original Shield. Can't wait to get out and shoot it this weekend.

    Great to hear. This should have been an option from the get go.

    Great deal. I like that the new one has no safety, mine is an older model with the safety, but the safety doesn't bother me. And I kinda like having the safety if I'm pocket carrying it. But congrats on your new gun.

    Congratulations! I don't mind (or use) the safety on mine, but I don't worry about it. If you're happier with the NTS, then good on you for getting one.

    Congrats. That is a wise decision. You don't want to have doubts or second guesses on your CC. My only advice is next time you are not happy with your gun, you should have try a PX4.

    I have the M&P Shield in .40 with the manual safety, but I sweep the safety even though it's never engaged out of habit. I'd have preferred the no-manual-safety, but I won't trade it to get one. How not to love the 0.95 inch width for concealing in HOT weather.
    For me, it comes in 3rd to my Colt Defender .45 and XDs .45acp for hot weather &/or discrete carry.

    No, that's not a good enough reason to not like the BP9CC. (Some of us like short take-up/short reset light triggers (mainly 1911ers)). The good reasons to not like and/or hate it are because it can take an hour to re-assemble (re-coil spring placement issue), the trigger sometimes pinches (some Dremel the frame), a roll pin in the slide assembly can bend or become loose (see link below), it has a mag disconnect safety, it has an ILS, Integrated Locking System, and primer bits can clog the firing pin channel (as compared to some SIGs that mitigates it.)

    Calling all BP9CC owners!

    When I read of many people having problems re-assembling a pistol, especially if you come from Glock-land, it gives me pause.

    The Bp9CC had a lot of promise to those of us who like compact sized pistols (5" high), unlike the Ruger Sr9c that is 4.61" high or 5.5"h (the same goes for SA XD/XDMs, S&Ws and SIGs) - too short or too tall. The SR9c also has a mag disconnect safety but going to either a 10 round mag or a 17 round mag is a killer for me. Another compact sized 9mm that had a lot of promise was the Remington R51 - and we all know how that turned out. Maybe the new S&W single stack will get it right. One of the most promising is probably the Walther PPS since it can have three different sized mags and at least one gives a 5.0" high grip.

    Congrats on the S&W Shield NTS.

    As for a BP9cc , I bought 1 and it was a huge let down. It fired 50 rounds flawless , but the front sight fell off. Then Bersa discovered a crack in the frame and took 4 months to send me a new 1. Like I said , I was very disappointed in Bersa b/c al I ever read was good reviews.
