I agree I have a 9C and I'm thinking about picking up two 9mm Shields. One for the wife's EDC and one for me as a summer carry.

Saw/handled one at a gun show yesterday. Shorter, skinnier than my Compact 9, single stack mag will make it lighter and easier to conceal. Would've bought it on the spot, but the lawn mower crapped out Friday. A new machine comes first.

I'm thanking about getting two. Just because I have always wonted twins.

I just saw one listed for $370, with two mags. I gotta get a better look at one.

I put one on layaway at Bud's. I'm tired of the problems I'm having with my PM9. I'm still going to try and fix the Kahr, but I'm tempted to sell it and have some extra money. We'll see when the Shield gets here and I get the PM9 cycling consistently.

Bought it!
 
I just came home with my new M&P Shield 9mm. I paid the full price of $449. I'm going to run it through its paces at the range on Tues morning. I'm still waiting on the XDs-45 and my hope is that those two will comprise my full-time carry options and render my Kel-Tec PF9 obsolete. The PF9 has zero failures and is accurate enough, but just not much fun to shoot. So it'll stay until its been clearly replaced.

I'll post pics and a report on the Shield once it's been worked over a bit.

First impressions:

Likes- Decent enough capacity, very slim, solid trigger, feels very shootable. Good size. About 10% bigger than my PF9, but better finish and feels more "shootable".

Dislikes- Mags don't easily drop free, but that might improve with reps and a little tuning. The grip is a little long with the 8rd extension, and a little short with the standard 7rd. Maybe 7rd with a Pearce-type extension would be ideal if it becomes available.
