Love mine

Only thing that could make it better is less recoil.

I have a 9mm Shield -- don't yet have enough rounds thru it to pronounce it a "GTG." So far I've been too busy//lazy to put in an APEX kit.

But it definitely qualifies as a decent BUG -- so good, in fact, I'm probably getting ready to sell a few Kahrs.

Only problem with the Shield is the safety -- but I don't see much way to accidentally engage it, so I'm reluctantly ready to live with it.

Didn't like the trigger at all.

Sig or Glock I prefer.

Try to find one and shoot it prior to buying one. IMO

Having the APEX put in ours as we speak, I will def make sure to let everyone know how the first range visit goes.

How does it compare to a Ruger LCR and a G26?

. Not to sound like an OT Baller , but I didn't ask. It won't be cheap as I'm going to fit it with the laser grip.

Rat and dawg,

Yall are not concerned with have a modified trigger in your carry gun? In the terrible event that yall have to defend yourself or others, the victims attorney will have a field day with that. You modified the factory trigger to make it easier to shoot and kill/injure my client who is a good kid.

I have had multiple LEOs and attorneys to never think about touching my carry weapons.

And I will say, "Then why was he pointing that gun at me.

If it's a justified shooting I doubt it would matter.

I am a lefty, so most of my stuff is necessary.

As far as the Shield, its not my primary carry, its the GFs. And I like my chances in Louisiana if I ever am forced to use my weapon.

Why did you shoot him twice instead of once? He was incapacitated after the first shot. If you would have had the factory trigger then only one shot would have fired.

Just a scenario that I can think of. Remember, civil law can get fun.

Louisiana I feel safe as well. However, I CC in many different states that are not as "good ole boy" as LA. And besides, that Good ole boy system can turn on you in a heart beat, just depends on who knows the man with the biggest britches.

RAT, I hear ya. Youre excused.
