Shield on the left. M&P Compact in the middle. Enough said.
Note the compact has the extended pinky grip installed making it look higher than he shield. When, in fact, the actual height is actually shorter. Nice try.

Search YouTube for actual comparisons in size. IMO, if you have conceal issues between the size of the shield vs the compact, you may need to study the art of concealment a little more in- depth.

You can post all day that even though it quacks, waddles and flys in a V that it's not a duck, but those posts are lost on those of us with a firm grasp of the obvious. I have both a Shield and a Compact, they are as different in size as a Glock 19 and a Kahr P9. The slim 9mm did not become the holy grail of the concealed carry world because thickness simply does not matter, no matter how much you want it to be true.

Nice try, but I am providing objective facts. You are providing subjective opinion. Are they different in size? Yes. Is that important to you? Evidently. I can conceal a full size as easily as my compact. For me, the Shield has no significant advantage. That's all I am saying, but using fact versus carpentry analogy or fake pictures to prove my point. Peace bro.

Seriously dude? You are going to resort to name calling because you have nothing academic, constructive, logical, or intelligent to add to the discussion?

I am glad you like your gun. I really am. I simply stated the reasons I won't own one and backed it up with fact. If that makes me a troll, then so be it. Of course, that leaves your personal descriptor somewhere below that.

Are you dead set on getting the last word in so you can feel victorious? Cause if that's what it takes to get you to stop then I will just concede that the Shield is the same size as the M&P compact when it comes to conceal-ability and then we can all get on with our lives. Now go ahead and get in that last set of "facts" with a touch of victimization so the dead horse can finally rot away. I promise I will let you get in the last dig. Cheers.

I have a Shield and I have a M&P9c and they are a huge difference in size and it come down to the thinner Shield is more comfortable to conceal especially IWB.
