I Was Done Buying Carry Guns, But Then...

This is a discussion on I Was Done Buying Carry Guns, But Then... within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'd really like for S&W to produce a Shield in .22LR. For plinking and practice. I've written them 2x about it but nothing yet....

    Yeah, but don't you want the optics-ready version?

    I really like the 40c

    I own one.

    Smith & Wesson M&P 45 Shield 2.0 Performance Center





    My pistol came with tritium night sights, and no external safety. Just put another 75 rounds through it today.
    Very nice shooting gun. Trigger has a nice feel to it, after about 200 rounds I'm starting to get a feel
    for it. Carrying it with an Alien Gear Shift shape 2.0 IWB. Whole set up is working well.

    It came with (2) magazines, (1) 6 round (1) 7 round and a nice compact cleaning kit.





    Great little add-on.... The whole thing came in a cardboard box (minor let down), but that's about
    all the fault I can find. Compared to a straight up Smith & Wesson M&P 45 Shield 2.0 I'd say the trigger
    has a better feel to it.. not by much. The porting doesn't make any huge difference in muzzle climb.
    Shoots accurate, I'm putting 2-3" groups at 6-7 yds, and I'm far from a precision shooter.

    Far from hard to handle. I brought a 'new to shooting' friend to the range today, and he thought
    the kick would've been much more than it was. He liked it, shot fairly well for 1st time out with it.

    The ported barrel & slide WITH an optic in .45 acp interested me. Otherwise (as I wash my mouth out with soap!), I may be BEGINNING to have ENOUGH handguns. cough-cough

    I brought in a finicky Walther PPK/S to WJS Guns in Merritt Island, FL, and
    traded up. Took 2 days to get the gun in, but well worth the wait.

    Great shop, family owned and folks there are very helpful.

    I have carried the Shield 45 PC 2.0 for three months now...… not the 4". Got the PC after I had gotten the 45 Shield with the green laser.

    One of these days I will shoot as accurately it does.

    They do it's the M&P 22 Compact! I have one for a trainer gun for students. I highly recommend it! BTW, they fit most standard Shield holsters!

    So do I. I have it in 9c as well. My sights are the standard white dots but both have had the Apex Tactical DCAEK installed but keeping the OEM trigger spring for a lighter pull (they come in at just over 5 pounds). Great compact guns and neither one has ever had a failure of any kind.

    Nothing against red dots... They're an excellent tool once you've trained with them,
    but I prefer iron sights. 1st off I'm proficient enough that I'm confident and comfortable
    using them. 2nd is for my self defense pistol I do not want my primary sight battery powered.
    (It's why I didn't get a laser on my Shield, I opted for the PC with Tritiums)

    I guess I'm a crotchety ol' curmudgeon, and set in my ways. I don't really want to re-learn
    sighting my pistol on the draw, especially on my SD weapon.

    It is nice for them to offer it though... And I'd consider one on a 9MM M&P Pro for range
    shooting, or if I decided to go into competition.
