    I really like my MP9. Only issue I have, is its off center. To move the front sight I don't have a punch, and its so tight, I will have to take it to a gun smith. It will cost around $15. Right now shooting at a coffee can dead center I will just hit the ground and to the right. So I have to aim above the can and to the left and I will hit dead center. So that really sucks. I like my guns right on. I realize if there is a bad guy coming its gonna be a point and shoot anyway, but still. You never know if you might have to take that bead so....

    Top Gun

    Posted by Ben on Jun 26th 2016

    In my opinion you can't do better than a Smith & Wesson M&P with an Apex trigger installed. It's a toss up between the Shield and the Compact. The Shield is easier to conceal but you can only get the duty / carry trigger for it. The Compact is fatter but you can get the better forward set sear trigger for it. Between the Apex trigger and the extra size, the Compact is a dream to shoot at the range. And the Shield is just about perfect too.

    Perfect Carry

    Posted by Dan on Nov 10th 2015

    I was shocked at how well this fires for such a small pistol! Well balanced and easy to tuck right in the small of my back.

    Great concealed carry gun!

    Posted by Luke on Jul 29th 2015

    Purchased the M&P Shield 9mm from Impact Guns about a year ago now. The Shield is a fantastic carry gun; I've put over 1000 rounds through it without a problem. Impact Guns is great to work with as well: the best prices for the best guns.

    Great Gun

    Posted by Big Mac on Jul 17th 2015

    I bought this from Impact in April of 2015. They had the best price online once you factored in shipping and CC fees. Impact Guns was great, fast shipping, good communication. The Shield is a great pistol. I have put about 500 rounds through it so far, not a single issue. I'm a big guy, so the 7 round mags are not my favorite. I bought 2 extra 8 rounders from Impact. Extra mags are expensive, but necessary. The trigger is actually pretty decent, it is way better than my fullsize M&P 9mm. It's crisp, and has an audible "click" on reset, two things I can't say about the fullsize. The gun is very concealable, points great in my hand, and is fun to shoot. I added some Ameriglo I Dot sights, and am loving those so far. The factory sights are good, just wanted to try something different. Impact Guns and the M&P Shield 9mm are both highly recommended.

    Great carry gun........Period.

    Posted by Jay on Jun 18th 2015

    My review is like many others. Too many of us on the same page to be wrong. I was shocked the first time I took mine to the range at how accurate it was. Also easy to handle for the small size. I own several range guns including a CZ P07 and H&K VP9 so I have a good basis for comparison. (not for handgun size but for overall ease of shooting and this gun shoots well) I could not be more pleased with it.

    It doesn't GET any better!!!

    Posted by BMW FREQ on Nov 13th 2014

    I purchased a 9mm Shield about 6 months ago to use as my primary concealed carry. I purchased it based on online reviews and YouTube reviews. Let me tell ya, this is a great handgun. Not only is it comfortable to wear, but it feels good in your hand; great grip. it's also extremely accurate for such a short barrel (3.1"). I've probably put about 700 to 800 rounds through it, and it's eaten everything. I'd highly recommend the M&P Shield to anyone looking for a high quality, accurate and reliable handgun. For the price they can't be beat! Get one; you won't be sorry!!!!

    My third one

    Posted by Vinny on Sep 11th 2014

    I bought my first Shield when they first came out. I got an early version. However, I found it too big for my pocket and sold it for a Kahr CM9. A few months later, I missed it and bought another. I then got a Sig P938 and sold the Shield. Last week I bought my third Shield. I was looking for a single stack gun that I could fit all of my fingers on. I can just about do it with my Sig but the Sig is small. The Shield fits my hand very well with the extended grip and is a little larger than my Sig. It will be used as my belt gun. There is something about the Shield that keeps drawing me to it. First off, none of the three ever jammed on me. They carry well, good sights and trigger. It carries very well IWB and is a good example of the small 9mm guns out there today. It is a gun that I always recommend to new shooters. You can even get it without the manual safety now. They even have MA and CA compliant versions. Nothing that I can think of that I do not like with this gun. Impact Guns treated me very well and got the gun to my FFL in two days.

    Great gun

    Posted by JimmyU on Jun 14th 2014

    Ordered on Tuesday, showed at the FFL on Thursday afternoon, took it to the range on Friday. Have the SWV9 but too big for CCW, so after much research and visiting gun stores, went with the M&P Shield. Price on Impact was best around, included free shipping. Right out of the box, the M&P shot solid at 7-10 Yards with nice tight groups, much better than the larger SWV9. Put around 60 rounds thru it with no issues. Small but feels solid, glad I went with this one over the cheaper 9's out there.
