Relatively new shooter here, very interested in your opinions on the S&W M&P Shield 9mm. I've been researching as much as I can, and I'm hoping to gain some valuable information here from you good folks that will help me become experienced and proficient enough to eventually attain a CCW permit here in NV.

Thanks much for all the welcomes! It's great to see so many people still believing in and practicing their 2nd Amendment rights!
BWB, did you purchase your Shield here in Vegas, and if so, may I ask where you got it? I was planning a stop at The Gun Store on Trop tomorrow, but it'd be good to have a 'plan B' just in case they are out of stock there. Also, are you by chance familiar with an outfit called Paladin Security Solutions? They run training courses here and seem to be pretty well organized. I might look into them as well for some training and my CCW class when the time comes.

Hello Bill, and welcome from Missouri to this great forum - good folks and LOTS of info here! I also am interested in the Shield, but as others have noted they are hard to find! I opted for a Taurus PT709 Slim in the meantime - love it also.
