My LGS only charges 25 dollars to receive, transfer, and background check for individuals. Well worth it when purchasing firearms that are otherwise hard to find.

I like mine. It's like the Energizer Bunny, keeps going and going.

I bought mine today. I was just lookin and I saw it. I haven't been able to find one a while, but when I saw it...I had to have it. Put a few rounds through it, and I'm in love. I'll have to ask forgiveness for the wife later

We love our Shields! I was at my lgs in Ohio about a month ago and I asked to put my name on the list for a 9mm shield. They had a list of over 50 names waiting. They said it will be long wait. So the next day I was looking on an online gun forum and they gave a name of another lgs in Ohio that is about 75 miles away from me that sell 1st come 1st serve. I emailed them and they had one 9mm shield and saved it for me for $429. A week later my 1st lgs called and they had got in 100 shields and mine was waiting for me so I bought the 2nd one for my wife for $419. We just completed our Ohio CCW class and we both love our Shields!!! Awesome concealable gun! Can't believe how lucky I was to get 2 shields!

Love mine. Incredibly accurate for such a short barrel and the recoil was surprisingly less than I expected. I love everything about the trigger except how heavy the pull is from the factory but that can be smoothed out and lightened slightly to help out a little bit. What I hate more than anything is ordering "available" extra 8 round mags and paying for two day shipping only for them to actually be back ordered for anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months. And having to call and wait on hold for a half hour to find out.....

Just did a general trigger job on it. Plus some. I have a PDF on it if you'de like it. I don't reccomend doing it if you aren't familiar with this kind of work.
