Had been interested in the Shield .45 but when I go ahold of one I didn't care too much for the feel of it in my hand. Seemed like a really light gun for a .45. I did own an XDS .45 in the past that I wasn't too fond of
Anyways I saw a P220 Compact (used) at a LGS for 625. Held it last night and was pleased at how it pointed and felt in my hand. The extra heft vs the Shield felt better to me as well
Offered 600 and they accepted. Can't wait to get it to the range and put it through its paces. May have found a cooler weather EDC
WOW, what a steal. I have the same gun and it is just fantastic; very accurate, never any function issues, great balance, and excellent trigger. This was the first SA/DA pistol I've owned that I could get the first DA shot off rather quickly and accurately and the SA pull is short and crisp. Enjoy and know you got a very good deal.
Wonderful choice and a wonderful firearm. Take good care of it and clean it, etc., after each range outing and it will always take care of you. As always, check out and fire the defense ammo you select to keep with you as you have her by your side. Caution: the +P Hornady Critical Duty .45 ACP may not fit the 220's mag.
