Sr9c vs shield 9mm
 
Debating between the two have had the sr40c and loved it. I felt I wasn't a bullseye shooter with the fourty but was not meant to be, just sd gun. I was wondering about your experiences and/or opinions.

I have the SR9C with crimson trace laser grip and it is dead on balls accurate ... Never had FTF, FTE, or any malfunctions in the past 2 years that I have owned it. It has been in my rotation of carry guns and will remain in my line up. Probably one of the better 9MM I carry and I would trust mine and my families life on it ...

Just to throw something else at you. The M&P9c is just about the same size as the shield. There are utube videos that show these two side by side. I doubt anyone would notice the difference carrying either one. The 9c holds more rounds and has the interchangeable grip panels to size to your hand.

The 9c is what I carry and have had zero issues with . I would expect the shield to be the same.

I believe the Shield is going to be a little smaller and a little thinner than the SR9c.

M&p trigger is god awful.

First off are you looking for a pistol to concealed carry or just a shooter?? Then the latest version of the m&p some are saying has a new trigger in them. But don't over look the apex improvements to a M&P trigger ether. It can make a turd in to a diamond. My wifes apex equipped M&P9c has a very sweet 4lb trigger with a reset you can feel .

If all you want a softer shooter and think so highly of the ruger sr series pistols why not buy a 9mm version??

All good thoughts. I was basically going to say the same thing.

I own an M&P9c and I love it. The trigger isn't great while dry firing but it feels better when shooting.

And yes, supposedly the newly manufactured Shields come equipped with a better trigger.

That's what I hear. My uses will be carry and just target something enjoyable.

They're both good enough guns. The only right answer, is to ask this question: How much do you value slimness in a carry gun?

I'm active, don't like wearing a ton of layers, thus I prefer a slim carry gun. So the XDs and Shield lines are right up my alley. If that wasn't such an issue, I'd consider the XDm compact, M&P sc, Ruger SRc, etc to be equally viable options. I'd have faith in the function of each of these guns (and Glocks too, for that matter). It really boils down to your desired fit.

The difference between the shield and compact models is what? Less than 1/4 inch? I carry the compact in my IWB holder with shorts and a t- shirt all the time. My brother has a shield that I tried out. I cannot tell the difference. This is why I went with the 9c over the shield.

Just my 2 cents
