Default M&P Shield

Anyone got one? Looked at one today and liked it. My banana fingers are non-.380 compliant. I can't hit a barn with the lcp and p238 size guns. Looking for something a little bigger. I'm not a keltec or db fan. For the money the S&W is way nicer! I looked at the lc9 but the trigger is horrid. The sig938 looks nice also but is it worth $200?

If you have Shield whats your thoughts on it?

I'm debating on either the Shield or the Walther PPS. I haven't handled a Shield yet, but it is about $150 less in price than the PPS... When Academy gets more Shields in -- they will be priced at $399. What was the going rate where you handled one?

Scotts in Jay and I didn't ask. Just saw what they were going for online. I'm sure they would match the academy price. $399 is a steal on that gun. PPS is a touch bigger and trigger was not as good as the Shield. The last walther I had was a bear to break down also. Shield is very similar to a glock in the tear down dept.

I think you meant is the Sig 938 worth 200 more. I haven't got my hands on one but have wanted to check one out. I have a PPS and really like it. It's rather simple and quick to break down so not sure why someone would think its a pain. They must be thinking of a different model. Hearing lots of good things on the shield. I've had some happy PPS owners tell me they like it a little better and at 399 it seems hard to go wrong imo.

I hated to trade mine off... wish I hadn't as a matter of fact... Probably going to buy another one. Just didn't feel right in my hand at first.... just about the time I was getting used to it, I traded it for a NIB 4th Gen G17

I'll have one at Outcast in a day and our everyday price is 399. If you're interested let me know. Like said above it's allocated and I only have one coming in at this time.

They are arriving at Academy more frequently now. I picked up a Shield 40 there yesterday afternoon. I would have preferred 9mm, but the 40 may grow on me...
