Default Got a Shield

I finally got a Shield that I've been waiting for.

I shot just two mags out of it today since my fiancé was there with me. She shot a whole 250 round bulk pack of Remington ammo by herself. I just kept loading mags up and she kept running through them. Overall I am pleased with the purchase.

How do you guys like your Shields?

They are a mini m&p and like any other m&p in ma they require an apex kit.

I heard the trigger on the Shield is much improved. Really like that APEX kit though.

Congrats on your new gun. Wish I could find one. Any leads?

I just bought a shield in .40 the other day but had to take it back because the 7 round mag would eject every time I fired of a round. Hopefully the store I bought it from fixes it and gets it back to me soon.

Wish I did. The place I bought mine is not a preferable place as they are typically outrageously expensive but they were having a huge sale for Veterans Day. Every where I looked is a 3 to 6 month wait.

The trigger seems pretty nice to me. I never shot an apex though.

In my state they have a 10# trigger. Absolutely terrible in a small gun. I do apex trigger jobs for $120. I can get it down to 4.5# for carry and 3.5# for comptetition guns. I could go lower but won't. The apex kit is well worth the money. Takes all the squish out of the trigger and shortens the reset.

Here in Pa it doesn't seem anywhere near 10#. I am going to look into apex though.
