Both my handguns were stolen from my vehicles the other night, one a glock 19 the other a Sig 250 in .40 s&w

My wife had been on me to get her a smith and Wesson M&P shield since I met her, well, she got her wish.

I had never shot one until yesterday but I will say I'm damn impressed with that little gun. Trigger was crisp, clean and accurate. It did have a few failure to feeds but I attribute that to being a new gun


That being said, I'm in the market again. I am going to get my LTC permit and start carrying, which leads me to think more subcompact than my glock 19 (which I believe is the greatest pistol ever made, I loved mine but it was not concealed carry grade and I don't like the smaller glocks)


Anyone have any suggestions or input on the shield? I'll prolly pick up a pistol by the end of the week

The Springfield XDMs and the XD's had horrible triggers,,I have owned them in the past but don't care for them now. I had a LC9 thst I liked ok but not as much as the shield.

Glock 19 makes a good carry gun. Why not go with what you love?

Say what? It's a compact gun.
I even conceal my Glock 22 sometimes.

I conceal carry a P226 with TLR1 and extended mag everyday on and off duty. Find the right holster and all is well.

I know a guy that carries a full size 1911 and he's maybe 140 pounds on a good day. I can never tell when he's strapped. A good holster does wonders.

Glock 19 with a Crossbreed IWB works wonders for me.

I've even concealed a Glock 20 with an Aliengear, but that was a little less comfortable...

Some call the Glock a Tupperware gun , myself I've shot some Glocks 19 and personally do not like Glock but most people like Glock cause LEO's carry a lot of them . The Shields are good guns but I'd prefer the new .45ACP than the .40 or 9mm . I rotate between a XDs .45ACP with the 3.3" barrel and the LC9s which is better than the LC9 and now they have the LC9s without the thumb safety . I know you said you don't care for either XDs or the LC9 . But right now those are the two of best compact CCW on the market . But a CCW is like clothes , you wear what fits, what you like best . Otherwise you won't be satisfied . However when you start carrying after a period of months you might just want to find something else that is best comfortable to wear for you personally . A .45ACP get's heavy by the end of the day , just make sure you have a good sturdy belt to hold up . Make sure your holster is a good one too , otherwise you'll be in the market for a new holster also . Good luck on your decision , besure YOU make the decision what you want or you won't be satisfied yourself . You'll always have that wish you had of bought that......

Shield is about the best carry gun out there IMHO. Perfect combination of size, ergonomics, caliber, reliability, and price.

Personally, I don't care for Glock and I love my XD-9, so we may not have a lot in common. And I view any gun larger than my Kel Tec P-3AT as something that's a nuisance to carry. My KT is good though.

Went back today, no way I can comfortably conceal a glock 19 in jeans and a T-shirt.


Gonna go with the shield

Shield is a nice pistol. Have you looked at the Sig P938? Another fine firearm/easily concealed.
