    You can find them..but they are kind of like .22 ammo..when you find it..you have to jump quick. Locally I follow about 6-8 LGS a week and someo.e gets at least one every week. Good luck!

    For those of you that make firearm purchases online.....doesn't it cost you more than buying locally? When transferring through ffl I mean?

    My wife loves hers. It shoots really well and is also extremely comfortable to hold and conceal.

    My LGS only charges 25 dollars to receive, transfer, and background check for individuals. Well worth it when purchasing firearms that are otherwise hard to find.

    I like mine. It's like the Energizer Bunny, keeps going and going.

    I bought mine today. I was just lookin and I saw it. I haven't been able to find one a while, but when I saw it...I had to have it. Put a few rounds through it, and I'm in love. I'll have to ask forgiveness for the wife later

    We love our Shields! I was at my lgs in Ohio about a month ago and I asked to put my name on the list for a 9mm shield. They had a list of over 50 names waiting. They said it will be long wait. So the next day I was looking on an online gun forum and they gave a name of another lgs in Ohio that is about 75 miles away from me that sell 1st come 1st serve. I emailed them and they had one 9mm shield and saved it for me for $429. A week later my 1st lgs called and they had got in 100 shields and mine was waiting for me so I bought the 2nd one for my wife for $419. We just completed our Ohio CCW class and we both love our Shields!!! Awesome concealable gun! Can't believe how lucky I was to get 2 shields!

    Love mine. Incredibly accurate for such a short barrel and the recoil was surprisingly less than I expected. I love everything about the trigger except how heavy the pull is from the factory but that can be smoothed out and lightened slightly to help out a little bit. What I hate more than anything is ordering "available" extra 8 round mags and paying for two day shipping only for them to actually be back ordered for anywhere from 3 weeks to 2 months. And having to call and wait on hold for a half hour to find out.....

    Due tell how to work those triggers. I was having trouble adjusting today at the range. I formerly had a kahr cw40, and I loved those triggers...so you can understand the problem

    Just did a general trigger job on it. Plus some. I have a PDF on it if you'de like it. I don't reccomend doing it if you aren't familiar with this kind of work.
