    I'm quite content with my 9mm Shield. However, I would probably now also compare it to the EC9 or even the P365.

    The boss says I already have enough since I didn't stop at one. But to answer the question I'll go with my Glock 43. Hopefully my 40s wont read this.

    I KNEW, whatever you picked, it was prolly going to have an H and a K in there, somewhere.

    If ammo and springs were not in the equation, I would probably pick a Dan Wesson V Bob in 45acp. It is heavy no doubt but, being all Steel, I think it would last. It is fairly easy to conceal. Accuracy and trigger are wonderful.

    If ammo and springs are in the equation, I would go with my PPQ in 9 mm. I have enough replacement springs for just in case and I have at least 3 boxes of ammo. Generally, I see no reason to keep more ammo on hand than a box. (Big Grin)

    Nope, original about a year before the 2.0 came out. Only thing I can see better is the picatinny rail. I have no qualms about the original trigger at all. Other than the plastic trigger. Would change to the full Apex trigger kit when I get the money, mainly just for the metal trigger. But I figure if I do that I might as well go for the whole upgrade. Coidunt huit.

    Thanks. I have the earlier 9mm Shield, as well. I just wondered how it compares with the 2.0.

    If I can make the time I may rent the 2.0 to compare. I see nothing wrong with the trigger, so not sure how much better the 2.0 could be. But then, I haven't shot much else except to test fire a few before purchasing and a friend's Hi-Power that had light/no strikes and wouldn't shoot.

    If I could only have one and that’s it I guess it would have to be stainless, it would have to be a revolver, and it would have to be concealable. Lucky for me I already have a 3” SP101 in .357 in my growing stable. Good gun, will last me the rest of my life, and someday will belong to my grandson god willing and the river don’t rise.

    I have a Police and Military background and I have shot alot of weapons. I would choose Glock 19. For me it's a easy choice.

    After thought? It would have to be a model 66 S&W in 357. It will kill anything I need it to, and will always work. LOTS of other choices for me, but if only 1? That would be it.
