What you heard is true. They are nice pistols at a price, that won't bust your piggy bank.

Great carry pistol.

Pretty much all of the striker fired guns are about the same. Find the one you like and practice.

Fantastic carry pistol - best combination of a carry/range gun made IMHO. I own the model with the thumb safety. Bought it after trying my FIL's and falling in love with it.

Same here, I bought the two-tone with safety



If you think you want a Shield and aren't looking to save, look at the new 2.0 that has some nice enhancements over the original.

I think the difference is about $100. I paid $318 for my 1.0 online and $20 to my FFL friend to receive and transfer it. At that time there was a $75 rebate so I'm in mine for ~$260. I looked at the Performance Center model which is ported and supposedly has a better trigger but side-by-side I couldn't tell enough difference between them to justify the price difference.

I paid $240 for mine used locally. I think new they're about $100 over that. I have no idea about the gen 2 pricing.

My wife has one that used to be her EDC. It shoots well and has been reliable and accurate. She switched to a Kimber Micro .380 because it fits her holster purses better. The Shield is now the bedside pistol in a Hornady pistol safe.

I used to have a Shield 9mm and I had no complaints with it. I have, however, learned of an issue with some of them within the past few months. We had two officers buy Shield 9mm's and bring them to the range to qualify. Both of those guns were somehow shredding the bullet jacket and making their targets look like they were hit with bird shot. We tried different types of ammo with the same results. It felt like there was a small bur at the inside edge of the muzzle/bore and I assume that's what was causing the problem. One of the guys sent his to Smith and Wesson and they sent it back with a new barrel and no problems. I'm not sure what the other guy did. I'm confident it's probably a rare problem, but definitely not an internet problem (I saw it personally).

The shield is my EDC. I had some problems with getting the gun to rack at first, but took it to the gun shop and they fixed it. Great gun to carry.
