Default Picked up a new M&P today.

I went to the gun shop the other day and traded my SD9VE towards a M&P shield 40. I took it to the range today and ran 100 rounds through it and I'm impressed. It's very accurate and comfortable for its size. It is so comfortable to carry, I forget that it's there. No need to carry my wife's bodyguard anymore when I'm wearing shorts and a T-shirt, I could not do this with my 9c. I love the shield 40.

What kind of self defense ammo are you using with your shield?

I forgot to ask, how did you color in your M&P logo?

Fingernail Polish and non-acetone remover. Paint on thick, let dry, lightly wipe of excess. Easy peasy.

Thanks, your shield looks good. I might have to try that.

Not really. I got an elite survival systems iwb/pocket holster. I stitched a piece of leather across the bottom because it was cutting my hip.
Aside from the fact that the clip comes off for pocket carry, I wouldn't recommend it. I just grabbed it because it was the only thing the shop had.
