Gr8 working gun,
April 08, 2013
Really like this S&W model... fit well in my hand right outta the box, even better with 8rd mag. Very accurate sites. This was my first intro to handguns, chosen especially for ease of "take down" & 9mm caliber. I just couldn't see cleaning the gun and taking a chance on losing one of those removable pins! Since its' purchase back in Feb., I've blasted out approxamately 1000 rounds even that ultramax lead reload ammo worked right through... I figure it'll take what ever you dish out!
Great little gun,

Sw hit a grand slam home run with this gun.
Great in the hand.
Easy take down
Trigger ok could be better if they used the one on their pro
Could do without the safety but you don't have to use it
Made in USA
Good iwb gun for ccw
Fun to shoot.

took it to the range where I promptly shot 100 mixed rounds through it. The breakdown of the rounds is 10 hydro-shock factory loads and the rest handloads, 10 Hornady 124 Grain XTP, 10 Speer 124 Grain Gold Dot and 70 FMJ. The second Hydro-Shock did not feed all the way so I pushed the slide closed and it performed as advertised. I think this was due to the gun being new as all other shells performed perfectly. Accuracy was better then I expected, @ 7 yards all shots where in a 6 inch group. Recoil is moderate but not abusive.
If you can get one I'd recommend this gun as a great concealed carry pistol.

I waited four months to get my hands on the 9mm Shield. Well worth the wait. I'm amazed how well it shoots. I highly recommend this!!!!! I've shot the Ruger LC9 and other similar models. The Shield is hands down the best choice in my opinion. I'm tempted to buy another one.

Picked mine up in a lucky moment six or so months before writing this, and have never regretted the purchase. It is easily the most reliable handgun I own, having shot everything I fed it with only one failure with cheap steel cased ammo after several hundred rounds without cleaning. Recoil is minimal, and I have found the gun to be comfortable to shoot, even for an extended trip to the range. White 3 dot sights are clear and easy to use. The trigger has a clean break and definite reset. Apex offers more options for your trigger, but I've been happy with it stock. Interchangeable back straps would have been nice, but the gun fits my hand comfortably; probably wouldn't have changed it anyway. Good selection of holster options as well as additional sights and aftermarket support from other manufacturers makes this one a win, hands down.

M&P 9 Shield,
July 18, 2012
I was in the market for a carry gun that had a reasonable size and great reliability. After an attempt with a high priced but not durable small 9mm I decided on the Shield. I am extremly happy with the slim size and reasonable weight (24.25 oz loaded). Most important however is that it's been perfectly reliable in 800+ rounds of assorted ammo. Not one issue and by appearances it will last many rounds to come as I would expect. As a carry weapon I hit the range often and enjoy shooting it. Recoil is good even with the +P Gold Dots I carry. The standard sights were great for daylight/range but I replaced them with Trijicon HD sights. Couldn't be happier!

I have a full sized M&P 40 that i shoot very often and totaly love it. i saw many reviews on youtube about the M&P shield and thought to my self that it would be a nice to have one of these little things. my father at the time who was very new to shooting became hooked to it after shooting my 40, and decided he would look into buying a handgun. i told him about the shield and he became very intrested in it. we went to the local gunshow and asked around the tables if any body had them and some never hurd of it, and others said it would be another 6 weeks before any body would be able to sell any. got to another and the guy said they would be getting on in. my father said he would take it. Right out of the box he was hitting dead on! the thing is extreamly accurate, and has never jammed once yet! this is a very highly recomended hand gun if you can get it!
