So the next decision is whether I cancel the Shield order. Not likely.
Congrats on the new gun! I was also on the fence, had shot both the 9 & 40 Shield and loved them, but it was getting tough to keep passing on the readily available XDs. I broke a couple weeks ago, got the XDs, and couldn't be more pleased. Great little gun, and who doesn't love a 45?
