Well, I sold my Shield. I've carried it pretty regularly for the past few months and have come to the conclusion that it is just not quite right for me. My issues with it are: 1. It's just not quite small enough. It carries pretty easy but, for a small guy like me, it isn't small enough to guarantee no chance of an accidental exposure. It can sometimes be carried in some (jeans) pockets, but not without difficulty and not without the pocket bulging out rather obviously. 2. The spacer that accommodates the flush fit of the extended 8 rd magazine always (and annoyingly) rides up the magazine body. This could prove a problem, if ever a rapid reload was needed. 3. The trigger, as good as it may be for a striker-fired gun, when evaluated objectively, is really just terrible. Anyone who describes a striker-fired pistol's trigger as "crisp" is either deluding themselves or has never felt a truly good trigger. Mush, mush, mush! I posted the gun on Armslist.com and, in just two days, I had over 30 prospective buyers contacting me. Final price: $510 shipped. I've been told this gun is listed in some places for as high as $600. It's a good gun but, it's definitely not worth that much.
