Picked up anther M&P Shield today!
 
FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY got my second 9mm S&W Shield. Been looking for 2 months now..

FINALLY!

Selling my PX4 to cover the cost (yes, its true)... Officially taking a hiatus from gun buying now. Been buying for years. Now, gonna start taking some vacations... Obviously, keeping my Beretta 92s, though, and my pair of PS90s :)

I have some sort of complex with having multiples of the same gun!

Congrats. It's always more fun when it takes a bit of searching. Took me 4 months to find my glock 20

That's great man! Those are flying off the shelves around here in va. I just got my first m&p 40 yesterday. I like the shields but a 1911 is deff next.

Thanks where are you getting them from? I've had a hell of a time trying to locate one at a decent price.

Well, I got the first one over 2 months ago. Rented one, and called a local shop the same day... I was told they had one coming in that Monday, and they held it for me.

SInce then, I have spent 2 months searching for a 2nd one. I have been on the waiting list at 3 gun shops - even #2 on the list at one of them... STILL waiting...

Went to Houston and struck out at a gunshow. Then, on the way home, I stopped by a Carters Country gunstore and they had some

An LGS was selling M&Ps yesterday and giving 5 free shots. Damn near bought one on the spot. Great trigger, surprisingly little recoil. I definitely have one on my radar. Good buy!

Like the picture of Jagr. Good luck with him in Dallas! Tires out late in the year.

Yes, they are nice guns. I did 5 shots at my local range and was hooked.

As for Jagr, I'm sorry to see him go to Dallas. I am gonna miss him on the Flyers...

I'm still waiting for my... First one ;(. Regretted that i didn't buy it when my lgs had it on the first week it was released. Oh well, i'd just wait...
Congrats on your second score!

I have an m&p 9 and I was wondering what the difference is from the original to the shield? Is it really that noticeable?
