I picked up a S&W 4" Performance Center Shield this morning. I will say that it does whip the llamas' ass :D - I am really impressed by how this gun shoots. No kidding.

I also got a 4" Shield 2.0 earlier this summer. And, at the time - I debated as to which version to get... Go figure, now I have both... The original thin version, and the Plus size version as well. Both are awesome guns.



I've never been a fan of fiber optics, until now. I like that S&W puts some spiral metal around the fiber optic tube in order to protect it from breaking. I'd never seen that before. Now, I am not so worried about something happening to the light rod.

Also, I complained on another thread recently about having trouble seeing the front sight on some of my handguns (as I get older). No issues with that with the fiber optics. Very cool.

I did compare both the thin 4" Shield and the new Shield Plus 4" version. I do shoot both equally as well. But, the original Shield size has always felt almost TOO thin. I no longer have that with the Shield Plus. It feels great in the hand.

I might replace my Glock 19 with this as my main carry gun. It shoots that well.

The shop had some of the 13 round Shield Plus mags, so I picked up an extra one today as well.

Anyway, now I have 3 Shields...

The original, smaller Shield really makes a great pocket gun with my cargo pants. And, I got that one for $249 right (before this covid mess hit). But, I will say that the 4" Plus is my favorite of the three...

Anyone else have one?

I've shot a few different Shields, and if I wasn't so heavily invested in Glocks, I'd probably own one of the new ones; I really like the way they shoot and feel in the hand.

Especially now that they have "Glocked" the trigger, getting away from that gawdawful hinged thingie. Hate those original triggers. Hate, HATE, HATE!!!
Yup, strong word. And I purposely used it three times.
The old-style trigger?
"Not a fan".
:D
