Either way, if your guns serial number is part of the recall, have it fixed.

A Shield 9 mm is my everyday carry and has been for a year. I carry with the safety on, and in an IWB holster, have never had the safety move off. So I see no problem in his warning.

The recall is for the trigger isn't it? Not the safety. I have not checked mine yet, will carry the ruger today, and check the Shield latere when I have time.

I believe if you go to the respective website they have a list of the serial numbers affected.

Yes, the Safety Alert is part of the Trigger that could cause accidental discharge if weapon is dropped! I tested mine, as the video clip suggested and my trigger is functioning properly according to the Video! I see no safety alerts pertaining to external safety on S&W's website! Mine appears to be working properly as designed. Part of the problem of an external safety. is the manufacture finding the sweet spot between, stiff enough to prevent accidental engage or disengage and loose enough for flawless disengage if needed in a Crises. Weather this guy had real concerning issues about the function of the safety is debatable! What is clear to me, he never really cared for the shield and hated safety's on small Carry guns, which is puzzling to me as why he even purchased one! I dislike external safety's but Love the shield and leave mine disengaged, ignoring Smiths stupidity for putting a big wart on such a fine CC gun!!

This has S&W's label on it.

Yes, I tested mine about 10 times and the tab consistently disappeared and appeared as the video showed! This will probably slow sales and increase availability in some areas! I hear the Shield is still difficult to find in some areas.
