I bought an M&P 9mm Full Size on January 6th. Today, I bought an M&P 9mm Compact...and also decided to go with the Shield for my fiancé.

I really love these guns. I am a trie believer that they have became a top comptetitor in the polymer semi-auto gun world. I would recommend them to anybody.

Very satisfied customer here.

Agreed. For three reasons:

1. Lifetime Warranty
2. American Made
3. The VTAC is one of the coolest guns I've ever owned. IMO.

Love the M&P line of handguns and ARs.

I've never seen a shield in person. My LGS has a 9C. How much more concealable is the Shield? Also, is $515 a decent price on the 9C?

BTW, congrats on your new guns. Always love to hear about people getting new stuff.

Concealability is highly influenced by factors other than just gun size; body size being chief among them.

Some (larger) people might be able to conceal the M&P compact just as easily but, as a small guy, the Shield is very significantly easier to hide.

Thanks!

And I paid $470 for both of my M&Ps. I got lucky though, bc I was price locked where I bought them. They went up to $509 before tax

Oooooooh. I like that!

How would one go about aquiring an appearance such as that?
It's made that way by S&W. Just look up M&P VTAC 9mm or 40.

The big thing are the sights. Day on top. Night on bottom.

I looked into those sights. They are really nice but wayyyy out of my price range....for sights.
I got the gun with the sights and two mags from my LGS for just over $600 after tax. So I spent about $100 more than the standard M&P 9. Best money I have spent.

That makes it worth it...thats something I will be looking in to.

Do they cause any issues being a taller sight for conceal carry?
