Default M&P shield Purchase

Hey everyone, new here to the forum and just want to say hello and tell you a little about how I got my shield.

I started off with a SD9VE and love it, the trigger pull is heavy but overall great gun with a good price point. My dream gun that I have been wanting for a while is a shield 9mm. Yesterday I finally decided I would buy one, being from New Hampshire I had a few different gun stores around my area so I called 10 different stores but everyone was sold out and I was told that the wait would be into February.

This morning I woke up to an email from one of the stores and the manager had informed me they just received shipment and I better come asap if I wanted one. So I headed over and picked mine up for $399.95! Happy about my purchase!


(Don't mind the finger print smudges/oil on it, cleaned her right after the picture!)

Enjoy your new find. I've had one for about ten months now and ran about 1,000 rounds through without any problems.

Nice!! I hit 400 rounds yesterday at the range and she is still firing perfectly. Ordered this holster but was told it would be at my house in 2 weeks 4 days http://www.crossbreedholsters.com/MiniTuck.aspx

Try alien holster. I have reviewed them and watched a few youtubes. They are half the money and half the ship time. Think that's what I'm gonna get

Cancelled my crossbreed order and have an alien holster on the way! Thanks for the suggestion.

Also, I now have 700 bullets through the shield and it is performing flawlessly! Extremely accurate and feels very comfortable.
