Finally got my 9mm Shield - Again
« on: January 10, 2020, 10:01:58 PM »
I ordered a 9mm Shield from Palmetto State Armory at the end of last month - They had the gen 1 models for $249.

I used to own 2 Shields when they very first came out - later sold them, but missed having one. It makes a good pocket gun in cargo pants.

Got one again finally  :th_thicon_idea:

I have owned 45s in the past - but the ONLY 45 I care for is a fullsize 1911. The grip on various HK 45s and other models always end up being too big for my hands.

I would not want to shoot a Shield in 45. That would be too much recoil for me in such a small gun. Sorry...

But, I eliminated 45s years ago when ammo prices jumped up so high for a while. They've come down a LITTLE bit since then. But, everything I have is 9mm now.

I have heard many good comments about the 45 Shield, but it's not for me.

Try one you will be surprised. My shield 40 has snapper recoil than the 45. 
I hate my buddies glock G32S in 45.
Way more felt recoil than my shield
Im 59 in 3 months BTW.

If I ever get a chance, I'll try it. But, they only rent the 9mm one here
