I did A TON of research on CC guns before I purchased this beauty. I have a smaller physique (about 5'9" and 130lbs) so it was important to me that I find something that packs one hell of a punch while still being very easy to conceal, the M&P Shield is the one that does it. I have a wife, a son and a daughter on the way, I carry everyday and it's comforting to have the Shield on my person. A round is always chambered with the manual safety OFF with a full flush mount mag loaded with Federal Premium 124 gr. HST's and I feel very confident in it's ability to perform to perfection when needed. Always has so far when at the range. Perfect CC handgun with no compromises of accuracy, faults or functions.
I tried a different brand for concealed carry, but the I've found the Shield much more reliable. It always works and is about the smallest pistol I can get a grip on. Recoil in 9mm is quite manageable, but I found the .40 jumped quite a bit, so I use the 9mm. The trigger pull is relatively short and crisp and not so heavy as to throw off my aim.
THINNER AND LIGHTER THAN THE GLOCK 26. JUST AS ACCURATE AS THE 26 IT`S A LITTLE TALLER THAN THE 26 AND ALOT EASIER TO CARRY. TRIGGER PULL FEELS THE SAME TO ME AS THE 26. 3 LESS ROUNDS THAN THE 26, IT IS A LITTLE MORE ACCURATE THAN THE BERETTA NANO BUT THE NANO IS SMALLER AND EASIER TO CONCEL. THE NANO HAS 4 LESS ROUNDS. ALL 3 GUNS ARE EXCELLENT, BUT I HAVE TO GIVE THE NOD TO THE S&W SHEILD. GREAT GUN.
I have carried a concealed handgun daily for the last 15 years. Mainly a Glock 30 or 27, both extremely reliable and accurate. I bought the Shield a year ago because I needed a smaller pistol for hot weather carry. What a little dandy! Simple,accurate, great trigger,very thin. Well over 1,000 rounds down the pipe with ZERO malfunctions. The Shield IWB loaded with Rem. Golden Sabers +P's hardly even know it's there. Great job S&W.
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!
Sw hit a grand slam home run with this gun. Great in the hand. Thin Easy take down Good sights 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.
