hello, if anyone is interested in an m&p shield in 9mm, Musser's Outdoors in Ephrata, PA has about 4 of them, including 2 they are expecting later today! price is 479.00. a bit steep, but i have seen worse (much worse). give them a call, they are the nicest ppl i've dealt with. i drove from Philadelphia to their store (about an hour) and it was well worth the trip! good luck!
P.S. if you do drive there, tell them, "Giovanni from Philadelphia" told you about the shields. they'll get a kick outta that!
