    Shipwreck. Which OWb holster did u get for the Shield?

    .

    I bought a molded IWB from Holsters by Eric (very high quality) for my Kahr CM9, but I have a Shield on order and want to switch to OWB for comfort.

    Thanks,
    Gary

    This thread and a couple others, plus the link to hickok45 on the shield convinced me. Now I am on 2 waiting lists for a 9mm shield. #18 ($409) and #51 ($399). Don't care which one comes in first. Held the LC9 for size to my hand and it feels good. I am expecting the Shield to feel, like goldie locks says, "Just right".

    I'll be looking for an IWB holster for this as well. Thought I'd be better off with OWB but Shield is slim enough it might feel better conceled IWB.

    Thanks everybody.

    Thanks for this link too !!

    Looks like the Shield 9mm is now CA compliant.

    I'm #18 at the Firing line indoor range and # 51 at the greenmountain gun shop across town. Bleep the names if I'm not supposed to mention them. Hoping for $399 first. One more possibility down in Parker where I think I'm #1 but they are a really small shop and dind't give me a price. Hoping to sell my .32 Bernadelli model 60 to help finance. It's really fun to shoot but the .32 ammo is higher than 9mm. I'll miss it.

    I'm wanting to pick one up for my wife as her first CCW. I got to handle and dry fire one when they first came out. Fit, finish and balance were superb for a $400 handgun. It aimed very naturally and had terrific sights. And the trigger was awesome -no creep, very crisp and a very useable reset. All-in-all, a wonderful gun.

    I might have to pick up one as well. Now, if they only made a .45 ACP version, I'd be set.

    Thoughts on the CA compliant version, specifically the loaded chamber indicator. I don't like it.

    Check Theis Holsters out for a good IWB. Have two so far. One for my .40 Pro and one for my Shield 9mm. Good price and good service.

    Caution before purchasing Shield .40 saw on U tube a guy shooting one and the magazine kept falling out and he maintains his thumb was no where near the mag release. maybe that is why they are so hard to come by, perhaps they are making repairs and correcting issue on future production.. Time will tell!

    This is a well known issue for the 40 cal shields. They are fixing it.

    I wills ay that it is very strange for your very FIRST post on this forum to be about a problem, though. Not asking for advice, or saying hello, or telling us what guns you have - but just complaining about a gun. Always makes such a claim suspect, IMHO. Sorry, but true...

    I'm on a couple of waiting lists for a shield.

    I decided to buy a S&W M&P 9c a few months ago and I'm glad I did.

    I love the 9c

    Just one problem with that ..

    My wife shot it & loves it too .

    So I'm going to buy a Shield & I'll carry one of them & her the other.

    It feels fine. I have almost 2k rounds fired thru my par of shields (total). It wasn't until the 1k mark that I slowly developed a preference for teh smaller mag. I just like the way it feels better in the hand. But, the longer mag has caused me no issues. I leave one shield with the 7 rounder, and the other one with the 8 rounder inside of it
