    Hello From New England!

    I've owned a few S&W revolvers like the 642, 640PD, 19-4, etc. But I've never owned a pistol - until now.

    The current rebate deal made me jump off the Glock Fanboy Express and pick up a Shield 9mm. I liked it so much I just ordered a second one! My GLOCK43 is now listed on GunBroker Don't get me wrong - the 43 is a great gun - but the Shield fits my hand better, is just as accurate, and appears to be as reliable. The extra few ounces don't bother me a bit, and probably adds to the great handling/shooting characteristics. I'm now waiting on a holster, XS Sights, mag holder, etc.

    So far I've put about 120 rounds through the gun and it has run flawlessly. It just comes out of the holster (using one of my Glock26's until the real one arrives) and points naturally. The 43 for me, just didn't have enough to hold onto firmly - even with the grip extensions.

    So, I'm here to learn and feed my addiction! Is the Shield 45 my next purchase?

    Welcome to the forum. You picked a nice pistol to start with.

    Thanks Tex! I'm really enjoying the Shield and am anxious to get the accessories like XS Sights. I swear this small gun has similar perceived recoil FOR ME to my GLOCK19.

    Welcome to the friendly forum from SE Arizona. You made a good choice, although I prefer revolvers a good 9mm is an exception. I don't like Glocks for a number of reasons including they fit my hand like a 2x4 & are priced as high as Sig Sauers. I think your new Shield will serve you well.
