    A Better Alternative

    I put a shim under my back sight on my PF9 after bore sighting it in last winter. I took it out the other day for the first time since then and had trouble hitting the target. Today I thought I'd remove that shim and sight it back in. I loaded the batteries in the bore sight and they were dead, so I tried a few stores and they did not have them. I figured my LGS would have them for sure, so I went there. They didn't have them either, so I took home a M&P Shield.

    My PF9 fired one round pickup the next but the trigger was dead and the gun was locked tighter than a bank. Talked to Keltec they were no help took it back to my LGS and he said he would get me a new gun r give me my money back. I left with a Shield in 9mm and problems were solved.

    Those were some expensive batteries.

    Just to further this thread a bit, I took my new M&P Shield to the range today just to see how it would run straight out of the box after cleaning & lube of course. Now bear in mind that my other gun, the PF9, was what I was used to shooting with. I could not believe the difference, the Shield was a dream to shoot and the first magazine all went in center mass. I even backed up another 10 feet with nearly the same results. I only took 100 rounds with me but that was enough to change my mind on which gun I'll be EDC with. It never had a glitch.

    I'll still get the batteries though, you never know when you might need a bore sighter. Now I have to buy some new holsters, only two fit the Shield.
