I can't believe you can get a 1.0 for under $200 after rebate. I paid $350 on a Black Friday special shortly after it came out and thought I stole it. This is by far the best bang for the buck for a quality CCW IMO. I had one and sold it. Maybe now it's time to jump back in.

Good Gracious yes. You could even buy an Apex trigger kit for it and only have $275 or so in it.

About two months ago, the local LGS that I frequent had a Shield .40 on consignment, with 7 extra 7-round magazines, for $199.00 out the door. That was hard to pass up, and being one of the few remaining .40 fans around, I snagged it. I bought one of the Shield 45s a few years ago when they first came out, and bought a few mags from eBay to go with it... after that experience, I realized that I would pay that much for magazines and the pistol was essentially free ;-)

I had previously steered away from.40 Shields due to the perception that they would have a "snappy" recoil, however on taking the new member of the flock to the range, it proved to be an excellent shooter, and is now my choice for "discrete" carry.

Academy Sports has the Shield EZ for $229 after the $50 rebate - on their Black Friday flyer
https://gun.deals/product/academy-sports-outdoors-black-friday-2019-sale-flyer?utm_source=forums

AND if I read the Flyer right, you also get an Academy $50 gift card as an extra bonus. IF that if right, it brings the Shield EZ price down to $179 (plus tax and background check).

I might have to get a second one. Gramps is going to think I've totally lost my mind.

ETA: Gramps said GET IT!!!!

I purchased my 1.0 Shield from KYGUNCO... For $249.00 shipped.. My $50.00 rebate is being processed... I have owned a 1.0 & 2.0 , I traded them both . Paid low , traded high ... I honestly couldn't tell difference in the trigger , for my use , that is ..
But again I like my stock Glock 43 stock trigger ;-)

The 1.0 for $2 bills is a smoking deal on a great pistol !!!

He carried a shoe phone!



Actually most of the time it was a .38 snub nose, either a Detective Special or Model 36

My local LGS quoted me a price of $380 out the door (6.5% NC taxes included) for a M&P .380 EZ for my wife (I am thinking of getting her one for Christmas). Minus the $50 rebate, that's $330.
If I order one online, the going price after rebate is $300. Taxes and $30 FFL fee make it higher by about $20. I dunno. I'm still on the fence -- she might not like it, even though she says she'd "feel better" having a pistol. Aaaack.

S&W has done a great job with the M&P line up the past few years- The fact you can get into a quality compact this cheaply makes me want to grab a couple just because I can.
