shield .40 cal
Just figured I'd piss off a bunch of you and let you know I'll be heading down to North Shore Firearms tomorrow to do the paperwork on my shield.
I'll be trading in a bodyguard .380 and colt detective special as well as 2 boxes of .380, 1 box .38 special, 2 boxes of .22 LR, 3 boxes of 5.56 and 120 rounds of green tip 5.56 on stripper clips.
I expect to be delayed.for 2 days as I have been since working at the unnamed shop (that has been under investigation since I left). I expect to walk out with a few boxes of ammo and a holster. The gun will be shipped to a buddy of mine (ffl) to save me the 2 hour round trip to pick it up.

Assuming the government shut down doesn't stop all firearms related activity.

Well the guns paid for the shield in full and the ammo got me 120 rounds and a holster. I'll be picking my new hot weather\ backup gun up on Thursday or Friday.

Congrats man!! The Shields are fantastic firearms. ...I still wish I had mine.. :-(

They're damn near impossible to get hands on up here. I'd be tempted to sell mine, I could probably get $600 for it. Lol
Now I just gotta get the apex kit and night sights ordered, when I have the money. I wanna do both at the same time because the rear sight tends to be a pita to get off.

I have a .40 Shield and love it. Perfect carry size and feels great in the hand. I just haven't shot it as much as I should have.

Yeah It's a vast improvement over the bodyguard. Lol

I'm glad you got the gun you wanted.

Personally I think trading off that Colt Detective Special. But hey, if you like the Shield more, more power to ya.

MM13, you had a Colt Dick Special 38 and didn't give old Donn a shot, (no pun intended), at it?

You probably wouldn't have been interested. On top of the hassle of dealing with Massachusetts, it didn't have original grips, the finish was about 90% and I polished up the hammer and trigger. The only thing that gun had going for it was the difficulty of getting one in this state.

Picked it up today and ran it through a 75 round rapid fire failure test. She passed with flying colors.
