Have had a first edition(1.0?)Shield 9MMS for several years and love it as primary EDC. Wife had hers but hated tracking so it sat and finally sold. She got the new .380EZ and loved the feel but has not shot it yet. I did, enjoyed it , especially the trigger and accuracy. So I got the PC version. Silver and black(if I had to do again woul go all black as barrel is chrome and trigger and grip safety are AL)It is stiffer every where compared to non PC. Will wait to shoot it and see if it settles down. Mags were gritty but little polishing of spring sides fixed that. Sorry for running on but looking forward to shooting.
