I have both. I don't really think they are that comparable. One is significantly thicker than the other, although both are concealable. So it really depends on how you intend to carry it.

I have both the 9c and the Shield. Love them both. Both shoot well in my hands. Interestingly, I use the largest grip on the 9c, even though my hands aren't especially large. The Shield fits my hand...

Oh, and I can carry the Shield the same way I carry the BG. My favorite way to carry it is in the watch pocket in my jeans. Just like I do the BG. It fits well enough that the trigger is covered and...

I'll back up some of the other responses. I have them on my Bodyguard .380. VERY quick sight acquisition. They are not as accurate at the range, because of the design. It takes a lot of concentration...
