Shield Safety Warning!!!
 
A heads up from Yankee Marshall,

Gary is the brains in that outfit.

Into a couple of videos, he seems mildly entertaining. After a few more, you soon figure out the guy's agenda.

He has adopted kids, and listen to how he ends his videos. Not the brightest spark.

A Shield's been my EDC for over a year now, and the safety, which I agree is a redundant component, has never engaged/disengaged on it's own. Now I don't carry in a fanny pack or man purse, just a holster. That, and the safety's stiff enough I can't engage with a flick of my thumb like the video. Might be an issue down the road, but not yet.

Sweet Donn, I hope it lasts. Maybe he needs to get the safety tightened by manufacturer? I owned a .40 S&W from them (the same one the CHP use to have). It was a nice gun. I actually bought it over here in Germany. That was in the earlier 90's. I do think the safety should be taken out of the gun. It is not needed.

Alright, so the Shield being something I've actually got some hands on time with at the range I wonder about this.

I really liked the Shield but thought right out that there is no way that I would ever carry with the safety engaged. It is smaller than a damn tic-tac and almost uselessly stiff. If anyone has one that is light enough to engage or disengage by accident then they probably have a bad gun that needs service.

I think he's interesting to listen to and usually has a different perspective on things. I usually find myself agreeing with him.

He claims to be a "liberal" but honestly I believe he does that for shock value. He's definitely a Constitutionalist, which isn't anywhere close to modern liberals. He seems socially more liberal, but in his defense he's all about social liberty and freedom, again not consistent with the current real liberals, IMO.

I like the guy. He's not the best speaker but I guarantee I wouldn't be either. Again, I think he gives different perspectives on some things.

I saw this as well. I have to tell my sis, she just bought a shield.

I just checked mine. It works fine. I appreciate the heads up. It shows me that this forum is not just a people arguing about "which gun is better" and "your gun sucks". This is the type of information that makes me appreciate this forum even more.
