(3 out of 5) Mag Release Spring Failure
by from New Bern, NC on

Took my new shield MP to the range and after the first magazine, it started dropping the magazine. Sent gun to S&W, where it was determined that the Mag Release Spring hadn't been tempered and there for wasnt acting like a spring. And, unfortunately, due to the way that the spring was attached to the frame, the weapon would have to be replaced. So, theyve had it for 3 weeks, and tell me that it will be AT LEAST...AT LEAST...another 2-3 weeks before they can get a gun and ship it to me. When I asked why, I was told, well your not the only one waiting. So, it looks like this repair is going to deprive me of the use of my gun for 6 weeks to 2 months. Not a happy camper.

(5 out of 5) The perfect pistol.
by from Union, NJ on

Id waited over a year to finally locate a S&W M&P Shield due to them being quite scarce because all of the hype. I finally got one ordered through Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore, an excellent purchasing experience/transaction I might add and now I get what all of that hype was about. This gun fits the hand SO well, shoots smoothly/accurately and fires EVERY time you ask it to. If youre considering one DONT hesitate, they really are THAT good.

(5 out of 5) Great Weapon
by from Henderson, NV on

Great customer service on ordering & receiving my shield from the Sportsmans Store. The gun itself is everything as good as everyone is talking about. Online forums have a lot info on the gun itself & how to improve it. This is my most favorite gun.

(5 out of 5) Love it
by from Reno, Nevada on

To be honest I wasnt a big fan of the small framed semi autos until this gun hit my hand. It feels like it belongs there, its part of you. And its is perfect for that night out on the town or a quite dinner for two you know when a Glock 23 is just to big. First shots dead on and after 100 rounds she was getting better, smoother with each pull of the trigger and I didnt even wipe her down I just removed her from the box and started shooting. My wife a Kahr PM9 fan said she loved the trigger on it and I have to agree. Overall Im very happy with this purchase so much so that Im selling my xds when I get it back.

(5 out of 5) Very pleased
by from Scottsdale, AZ on

This was my first order through Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore M&P Shield 9mm and I am very pleased with the company and overall service. Gun is exactly as described, I love it. But mainly reviewing the fast fast shipping 2 day fedex, went out day after I ordered...and the shipping was free...cant beat that and overall hassle free experience I had with them. Also the best deal I could find on the net by far for this gun....unfortunately my stupid FFL had a $45 transfer fee!! But thats another story. Thanks again, Ill be back soon.

(5 out of 5) My Favorite Sub
by from Saint Augustine, FL on

I would argue that this is the perfect concealed carry weapon if you live somewhere warm. The print is marginally larger than an LCP, but I can get 2 groupings at 15 yards, which is far better than I am able to do with other subcompacts G26, LCP, LCR. I prefer the Shields trigger pull over the longer pull of the Nano and LC9. The only issue to date was that the white dot on my front sight fell out on my first trip to the range seems to be a common issue. I bought some white model paint and used a toothpick to fill it back in. Works like a champ. I carry it every day.

(5 out of 5) Incredible value !
by from Phoenix, AZ on

I bought this shield 9mm for my wife to use as a purse carry. She likes the 9mm platform, and we have other S & W polymer frame pistols that we are comfortable with.

I took it to the range to test it out today while the Mrs was out of town, and Im stunned as to how comfortable and accurate it is.

Pie plate at 10 yds, every round was a winner.

Fast follow up shots, no mis-fired in 150 rounds, and simply felt right.

I cant imagine the Mrs not falling in love with it when she tries it out.

I may have to get one of these for myself too!

(5 out of 5) S&W Shield
by from bald knob, arkansas on

The pistol was awesome. Very fast shipping and 5 star customer service

(5 out of 5) What a value
by from Lisle, Illinois on

Great little carry pistol, at a great price!

(5 out of 5) Excellent CCW Pistol
by from St Louis, MO on

Ive put about 1000 rounds 9mm thru the S&W Shield. Varying ammo manufacturers, grains 115, 124, 147 and bullet type FMJ Round Nose, JHP, FMJ Flat Nose. There hasnt been a single misfire or feeding issue. Accuracy is great. Absolutely no issues with the gun. Its very comfortable for CCW and it doesnt print at all with my IWB holster. The grips are comfortable and it points well during presentation. Highly recommend this gun!

Perfect firearm. No complaints whatsoever. Perfect service, and shipping.

(5 out of 5) Good customer service
by from Glenarm, IL on

This was my second order with Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore and once again had an excellent experience with customer service. Firearm shipped within two days at a good price and in good condition. I will continue to do business with this company.

(5 out of 5) Recommended EDC and acurate all around pistol.
by from Western Suburbs, Illinois on

I ordered my Shield on a friday afternoon and received it on the next tuesday! I give a lot of credit to SOS for the very fast shipping. I definitely be buying more toys from them in the future! My first M&P gun and will not be the last. I put 7 of 7 on a B-27 target from 50 yards on my first outing. Hit 2 of 8 from about 100 yards! Sweet shooter!

(4 out of 5) shield 9mm WITH thumb safety.
by from Morganton, NC on

I just got my Shield in. I have never been so disappointed. I got the thumb safety version. I had to place my order three times to get the gun due to my own ordering ignorance but the second time I ordered it was still the no thumb safety version. Well now I finally got the order approved. This was meant as a gift and I used my own credit card to purchase for a friend. Apparently this is not acceptable. Again I do not hold this company responsible. After the third order I recieved the gun very quickly and in great condition only to realize the last time I ordered the thumb safety version. I still have to say this was my fault but it was depressing. Anyways no fault to the company or gun but pay attn to what u order because the details are very small and not verified on purchase. I will not complain Any more because I feel at fault but pay attention. There is no warning or large type to even warn u or ensure that u are getting what u meant to.

(5 out of 5) Favorite CC gun of many!
by from Vicksburg, Mississippi on

Purchased the Smith and Wesson Shield over one year ago! It quickly became my favorite concealed carry gun. I have never had a stove pipe or jam with it after shooting several rounds of various types of ammo through the gun. I would also say that Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore has the easiest and fastest standard shipment times of any online company I have dealt with!

Thanks again for such a great online experience! To celebrate I just purchased another fine handgun from you this week!

(5 out of 5) M&P Shield 9mm
by from Highlands Ranch, CO on

So I was a little worried about the size of the gun for my hand while wanting something that would conceal well. Since concealment was paramount I went with the Shield. I could not be happier. I added the Pearce magazine extender and it makes for an excellent fit in my large hand and a great CCW piece. I also added Talon rubberized grips and the feel is just incredible. More like an extension of my hand, very comfortable.

I really like how concealable the firearm is, I use a Kestrel carbon fiber IWB holster with a tuckable strut and even with just a T-Shirt you would be hard pressed to tell I am carrying.

The gun itself is smooth and effortless, extremely accurate out of the case. I have run 500+ rounds through it with no issues. The only issue I have is with the take-down-lever. That just seems like more trouble than it is worth. I don't like to dry fire to clean but have found myself doing just that to avoid the TDL.

Overall just an amazing weapon and I am looking forward to a long and happy relationship! Oh and the Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore is my place to buy a Firearm. Customer service is second to none and they are extremely quick and efficient. I have already purchased 3 guns through them. Can't imagine buying from anyone else.

(5 out of 5) Great gun to carry.
by from Smithfield, RI on

I ordered my gun and it shipped the same day. When I got the gun I ran 150 rounds through it without any problems at all. The gun does take a little getting use to if you have bigger hands. The gun is more accurate than I am. By the end of my range time I was shooting 4 out of 5 rounds touching at 7 yards.

(5 out of 5) Satisfied Customer
by from Aurora, CO on

The S&W M&P 9 Shield is the second gun I have purchased from Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore. Once again the price was right the gun was priced $60 to $100 lower than what I would have spent locally and the shipping and service excellent the gun was delivered to a local gun shop on the 4th day after ordering and I had it in my hands less than a week after ordering.

The M&P 9 Shield is what I had hoped it would be - comfortable to handle and shoot and flawless in performance. My only surprise was that I found myself shooting 4 inches low at 20 to 25 feet consistently for the first 50 rounds. A little research on a few Internet pistol forums revealed that the factory sights are configured for a combat hold sight picture and not the 6 o'clock sight picture that I am used to with my other pistols. That correction made a world of difference. With a bit more practice I should be able to attain the tighter groups that I get with my other pistols.
