    Second Shield!

    FINALLY, FINALLY, FINALLY got my second 9mm Shield. Been looking for 2 months now..

    FINALLY!

    Selling my PX4 to cover the cost... Officially taking a hiatus from gun buying now. Been buying for years. Now, gonna start taking some vacations... Obviously, keeping my Beretta 92s, though, and my pair of PS90s

    I have some sort of complex with having multiples of the same gun!

    No. You can try calling them and see if they will ship - if they still have any left

    Just a bicycle innertube, if you can believe that. Old, old trick among online gun nuts.

    I hate hogue slip on rubber grips - I hate the palm swells and finger grooves. I have tried ones without those before - but the rubber was still too thick.. You could really feel it where the rubber ended on the grip.

    I bicycle innertube is very thin and works the best. I have put them on several polymer guns over the years. 1 tube lasts for years. Just cut a small piece off for each gun...

    It is ugly, I will admit. But, no one has yet to make a thin rubber grip for a handgun. So, I'm stuck...

    Grips probably won't be ugly to someone looking into the business end....JJ

    If you really want one, you have to stay on the hunt! I got lucky and found one at Davidsons back in June. Very good pistol. Fits in nice with my other M&P's.
    M&P .40 Pro 4.25"
    M&P 9mm Pro 5" (IDPA Pistol)
    M&P Shield 9mm (carry gun)

    Range Goin Hot

    Still waiting for my first one and I am wondering, what is the difference between any gun in any brand and the california version of the same gun? I see several listings at local and online stores that show the shield (out of stock) and a california model $30 - $60 higher (also out of stock) Far as I can see they are the same, 7 and 8 cap mags and all.

    I havent purchased a holster yet but I have my innertube sections cut.

    From what I have seen on calguns - there is a mag disconnect AND a loaded chamber indicator that sticks up - similar to some of the newer Rugers.

    The bicycle inner tube is a great idea. The next flat I get I know where the tube is going. Thanks.
