Wow, what a buying experience, I did a lot of research on the web regarding this pistol and went to several gun shops and talked with the experts about this model vs that model. I have big hands and I like how comfortable this gun feels and simple it is to shoot and take down. Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore had the best price that I could find, and I checked out numerous gun sellers and went to the local gun show and no one had a better price. Also , the customer service was outstanding at SOS. Placed my order at night and it was in the mail the next morning , took 3 days till I received my brand new bouncing baby gurn.
2nd purchase from SOS and this firearm is everything I expected it to be. Shipping took a little longer due to Black Friday deals, but small price to pay. Arrived with 3 magazines - two 8 rounds & one 7 round. First trip to the range - 300 rounds and no issues with several types of ammo - 115gr, 124 grain ball and hollow point. Feels great for EDC and use Hornady FTX Critical Defense 115gr. Magazines have strong springs and relax slightly with use. Very satisfied!!
My first purchase from SOS. Very good experience, happy and will continue business... great company.
Upon receiving my new M&P shield, I broke it down and cleaned the excess oil, went to the range and ran 100 rounds through it without a hiccup, great ergos and an accurate little gun, low recoil. Shot 100 rounds through it today and shot like a champ.... highly recommend it, great little carry gun, and I am a diehard Glock fan.....
I was fortunate enough to be able to shoot 3 of 4 concealed carry pistols I was considering purchasing. The fourth I only held/dry-fired with a snap cap. I was looking at 9mm only as this is the best capacity vs. power self defense round in my book.
I planned on buying a Glock 43 initially. Luckily, I was able to shoot the Shield 9mm, the Glock 43, and the Walther PPS original version. I also took a look at the LC9s Pro and dry-fired it. The trigger felt light for a CC weapon and the grips didn't fit my medium hands as well the Shield. The Walther was just okay and took last place in my comparison. It was mediocre in every category. Being a lefty, I thought I would like the paddle mag release better, but I hated it as well as the high bore axis and terribly blocky feeling grips.
Second place was shared by the G43 and the LC9s Pro. I felt like both of these were solid performers and would be a great option for concealed carry. However, I didn't care for the trigger weight and field stripping of the LC9s Pro and I HATE the sights Glock puts on their pistols. The Glock felt too small for my hands as well.
In any case, the metric that sealed the deal on the M&P Shield was when I shot it. My accuracy and comfort with this pistol was head and shoulders better than either of the other two pistols I shot.
There are only two VERY minor dislikes with the Shield. 1) the magazines - they are difficult to load and expensive. I do like that 7 or 8 rounds are options though. 2) The magazine and slide releases aren't ambidextrous for us lefties. Obviously these are minor enough dislikes for me to purchase and be very happy with the pistol. Also, the safety was in a place that a lefty would struggle with it when needed, so I ordered the no-safety version. The grips could stand to be more aggressive, but a quick call to Talon will remedy this.
It is a pleasure to shoot, fit, finish, and materials from S&W are great. In the future, I may add night sights and a laser/light combo. Neither of which is real necessary, only add to an already great pistol. The price and shipping from SOS were good.
I carry the Shield in my pocket holster. It's very comfortable since it has a single stack mag. I've had zero problems with it. Great buy!
This is the second pistol on this site that’s going to get its first less-than-five rating courtesy of yours truly. The first was the Springfield XDS-9. It took three trips to the range to get it to shoot without malfunctioning. The first time I had several failures to go into battery and FTEs and yes, I cleaned it before taking it to the range. On its second trip, I had no malfunctions until I’d put about 50 rounds through it. Then it started hanging up again, failing to go into battery, FTEs, and failures to fire. During the cleaning after that range session, I left it dripping with lube like a good old-fashioned New York pizza. Perhaps because of the lube job, the third trip to the range went better. I only had time to put about 50 rounds through it, but no malfunctions. Still, I don’t really like this gun. Perhaps it’s because I shot it AFTER shooting my FNS-9 for the first time – it was like going from a Lexus to a Chevy Cavalier. The trigger pull on the M&P is rough and inconsistent, and I swear that as the rounds added up, I started to feel a trigger slap just like on my Yugo underfolder. After shooting the center out of my target with the first 6 rounds of my FNS, I had no idea where the rounds were going to end up out of the M&P – my groups were about as tight as the size of Texas. Maybe it will shoot better and function more smoothly after a little more breaking in, but after about 200 rounds, the slide release is still absolutely stiff – I have to pull back on the slide to release after changing mags. Because of its size, I was hoping to use this as a summer carry gun here in sunny Florida. However, I’ll have to have several more trouble-free range sessions before that happens.
I was able to purchase this weapon really easily, it was delivered very quickly, and it is exactly what I wanted! The weapon is very accurate with a numerous selection of ammo, and I'm very happy with the whole experience!
Haven't shot yet, expect it to be as good as my Shield with safety! Which I sold quickly to my brother. SOSS is excellent to deal with!!

100% satisfied with my new Shield! It is now my everyday carry along with my IWB Alien 3.0 Cloak Tuck holster. Shot 500 rounds so far with absolutely no problems using extremely cheap ammo and no problems using my expensive carry ammo. Accuracy is perfect right out of the box. This gun is a perfect 10.
Overall I am very satisfied with this compact firearm. It's accurate, and reliable after 250 rounds. The only real complaints are the slide is hard to rack for weaker hands, and the thumb release is nearly impossible to use, and the magazine springs are very stiff. If you're not an athletic person, or smaller females, this will be a difficult gun to use.
