What is difference in the M&P 9c and the M&P 9 shield.
thickness shield is thinner and not as long as the compact. less rounds in the shield. the shield is a very good summer time carry gun. it disappears when you put it on. very light.
Sweet, thanks for the info. I guess the shield to the M&Pc is what the glock 23 is to the 27 in a way!!
In my experience, the shield is to the M&P9c what a Glock 27 is to an LC9.
M&p9cs are smaller than the 23
The 9c holds more rounds than the shield. Comes with a 12 round mag and also works with full size m&p9 17 round mags. The shield comes with an 8 round mag.
The compact also comes with interchangeable gip panels to fit to your hand. The shield does not.
You can also get the compact w/o external safety.
I went with the compact over the shield. Fit me better and I do not care for external safety on a striker fired handgun.
I also got on sale earlier this year for less than the shield.
Just get both
Here is a good review of a Shield, with several photos comparing it to the 9C at the bottom. The Shield is very thin, and therefore very easy to conceal, especially IWB.
