I went to the gun shop the other day and traded my SD9VE towards a M&P shield 40. I took it to the range today and ran 100 rounds through it and I'm impressed. It's very accurate and comfortable for its size. It is so comfortable to carry, I forget that it's there. No need to carry my wife's bodyguard anymore when I'm wearing shorts and a T-shirt, I could not do this with my 9c. I love the shield 40.
