want to like the EZ but it's nearly an inch longer and half inch taller.


Yeah I know.

I’m in intense internal debate lol.

I’m a big dude I don’t think concealing will be an issue, and I really like all the new features has over my 1.0 shield

What are the new features you like? Only thing I can see from the picture that seems more appealing is the tritium, and pistol just being bigger

How important is it to not have a safety? This is one reason my brother likes the Kel-tec P9.

That price point? EC9S

Sportsman's Guide had them brand new for $249 but they're sold out already.

G2C would be my second choice at that price point.

G2C

FYI, all Shield and Shield EZ models come with or without a manual safety. It's an option.

I'm aware. I bought my first shield with a thumb safety on purpose. I don't think I need it. Figure might as well upgrade.

What does the letter "C" behind the Taurus G2 or G3 stand for? The models I have been looking at do not have the "C".

Compact, but with higher capacity. G2S is a single stack mag with less capacity.

I’m getting mine with a thumb safety,, feel safer with one in the chamber.

"C" for compact. "S" for slim.

Just got a notice from Gander Outdoors. They have a new shipment in. $274.39. $10 shipping. You have to have an FFL, so maybe that's $25. Close to the price point.


LINK

Personally, if I was going to get another one right now, I'd look real hard at the Taurus G3C. Going to cost you more, but reviews are great and supposedly much better trigger.

One Example

Kentucky Gun Company has these for $279.99 but they often sell out quick.

Here's what the guys I train with would tell you:

1. It's mechanical. One less thing to go wrong if you needed it.

2. Extra step that you better train with if you're going to carry one with a safety. (I'll give you an example: My Compact 2.0 has one. My OWB holster has a retention button so you can't come up and take it from you right out of the holster. On some of the "quick draw exercises" for shooting at close range, you have to remember to hit the button, draw, present AND undo the safety. Still occasionally will forget to take it off. They'd say "seconds count").

3. They'll point to their head: "Your mind is your best safety".

4. Heavier triggers are your safety.

Having said that, for carrying it around (I don't wear it, just my car), I prefer a safety. The little Kel-Tec P32 I might put in the shorts doesn't have one, but it's a long trigger pull. Not going off accidently.

The last gun I bought was my 9MM back in 1991. Is there a waiting period for buying local or online?

Obviously, we're in pandemic mode so the time you actually get it will vary. Depends on the State. The vendor you buy from. The FFL you send it to.

Online

I've bought off Sportsman's Guide for example. Took maybe a week to get it to the FFL. He's only like 5 miles from here. Went over. He did the background check and I had it. Some vendors will advertise when then ship after payment. So, I'd say no more than 10 days tops. Usually much less.

That Kentucky Gun Store link is available usually. They're highly reputable. Bought from them before as well.

Local Store

Just walk in, if it's in stock, buy it, they run the background check. You got it. Here in Tennessee there is not waiting period for example. When you buy online, you have to consider shipping, the FFL cost etc. So add all that up. And you have to decide if you want to also support local businesses. They have to make a profit to stay in business obviously.

Purchased my S&W Compact 2.0 at a local gun store. I might have paid $50 more maybe, but the guy spent a lot of time going over the objectives, what they had, let me handle them. If you're in the market for something new, or not experienced, your local store could be a great option.


Keep us posted! Curious what you find.

If you want a higher quality than all those in your list, get a Sig Sauer P365. Mag holds 12 rounds, which is the most for a non extended subcompact 9mm magazine. Going for at least $400.

re: Compact 9MM for CC?
Couldn't have said it better.

But everyone has reason for wanting what they want.

Personally not a fan of safeties especially multiple safeties.

I had to buy my mother a Cali compliant pistol a few years ago and I couldn't believe how repetitive it was for the LC9... Lol
