Gun has been 100% reliable and is accurate. Very happy with this purchase.
This was my first online firearm experience and these folks couldn't be any nicer. My gun was shipped very fast and in great shape, box and all. Definitely going to be my carry gun. Thanks again!
There's really not much to say, these guns just work like they're supposed to.
This was my first online purchase. SOSS made the sale effortless with their website.The Weapon was delivered in about 3 days to my dealer. SOSS has the best deals on firearms period. Also, the Shield 9mm came at the time with 2 extra mags; total of 4 for $299. Missed the S&W rebate, but more than made up for it with the extra mags. The fit and finish ergonomics and the workmanship make this weapon a top contender for best CC. Thanks to a fine company for being also the top contender in service and weapon delivery.
Another purchase from Sportsman's and couldn't be happier with the seller and gun. Already have a Vortex Venom on top sighted in and ready to rock and roll. Thanks for the great service.
I have full sized handguns, so this was my first concealed carry gun. I was surprised that the recoil was so light for a compact 9 mm. I have run several hundred rounds through this handgun and have not have one FTF or FTE. At 20 yards, I can shoot this as accurately as my larger handguns. This gun is very easy to take down and clean. I love it!!
Got this just after Black Friday at a great price + 2 8rd mags free of charge. Put 600 rds down the pipe on the first day I received it and not a single failure. Customer service from SOSS was great and item shipped fairly quick; 4 days. Being this my first pistol, I couldn't be happier with the service and price of SOSS and the reliability of my first pistol thanks to S&W.
I love this gun, I bought one a few months ago for my wife, she loves it, and I loved is so much that I bought one for myself. Upon arrival, and at the range, I noticed that it didn’t have a safety, my mistake. This gun has a comfortable feel, it’s fun to shoot, shot 7 out of 7 at 7 yards, with a pattern of six inside the size of a softball. This gun is beast at concealment IWB, small of back, and tried it with my ankle holster, all comfortably. Just ordered 2 more for my grandsons, with the thumb safety of course.
I ordered the 9mm Shield with no safety. It came with 2 Free extended Mags for a total of 4. I’ve run 500 rounds through without an issue and very happy. I’ve mastered the firearm stock and will keep it that way. SOS is my new go to. Thanks
This was my first gun and I loved how easy it was to order online and with my dealings with the FFL dealer. I will be buying more guns and using SOS to do so! This is a great little gun, fits my hand just right. I got the recommendation for this gun from a US Marshal and he was spot on. Just right to conceal carry, not too big for that or my small hands! Love the gun and SOS

Yes 1 less round, but a finely crafted
firearm. 534.00 with great trigger and
night sights. + 43.00.
What a great shooter. I also have the 9mm Shield, but this 45 is becoming my favorite carry pistol. With only one round less than the 9mm and only a little bigger, it's a no brainer. Very accurate and surprisingly not much more recoil than the 9mm.
I own a G19 several years and was surprised how the Shield shoots. Shot 8 rounds in less than 3 seconds in an 8 inch plate at seven yards and hit 7 of 8. Very controllable gun and easy to aim. My G19 will now be a home gun and this Shield will be my edc from now on.
Picked this up at a stupid low price. 200 rounds at the range and only 2 failures that were my fault. Thumb on slide lock. My only complaint is that sights were ever so slightly off to the right, and that was very easy to fix. Came with 8 and 7 round mag and a lock.
When comparing quality to cost, this carry piece is great value. It’s slim and fits holstered inside the waistband comfortably. The shipping wait time was accurate.
My opinion from 1 to 5, 5 being best:
Mag capacity: 2
Overall, S&W makes solid products. This piece follows suit. Great carry piece.
My wife, 2 sons, and myself all own the S&W Shield, along with a few other quality hand guns. All 4 of the Shields have been nothing less than stellar!!! All 4 have stock triggers. The 2 boys easily qualified for their CHL license. One had limited experience and out shot a class of 20+ people. The Shield is hands down the best deal on the market.
Great deal on a great gun. So, I bought 2 of them. The rebates made the deal even sweeter. 2 guns, 7 mags, box of ammo all for the same price as 1 g26 with 2 mags. Add night sights to both for less than the MANDATORY sight upgrade of a Glock and you are still WINNING!!
I bought my Shield back in early September but wanted to get a couple hundred rounds through it before writing a review. After about 250 flawless rounds of Winchester, Remington and Herters ball ammo and Federal HST self defense ammo, I can honestly say that not only is the Shield reliable, it is a pleasure to shoot as well! For under $300 shipped, plus the two free magazines, two boxes of Critical Defense and magazine loader, you cannot beat this deal! My sights were off from the factory, but when I emailed Smith and Wesson on a Friday for ideas on how to drift the sight mine fit VERY TIGHT I got a reply on Sunday afternoon with an attached prepaid shipping label to send my gun in to have their gunsmith look at it, I was able to move the front sight myself, but getting a reply on a Sunday surprised me! The gun shoots great now and is a dream to carry! Don't hesitate to buy this gun!
For $298 plus free shipping and a local $20 dollar transfer fee, this is the best deal going anywhere. Shield feels good even in a big bear paw and hits what its aimed at. Trigger could be better but that is THE ONLY critique that can be made. Buy one if you're on the fence. Outperforms baby Glocks with more kill opportunities and does it cheaper and with a better feel.
After not purchasing a firearm in over 20 years, I wanted to update my small collection. After reading all the bad reviews about Sportsmans, I asked my FFL dealer, who told me not to go by what I had read, and that they have received hundreds of firearms from them. I’m glad I listened. It was shipped the next day after ordering, and in my hands in less than a week. Great price, and the gun can’t be beat. Still waiting on the rebate though. S&W should do better. Disappointed in the rebate service provider.
My first purchase from SOS. Went great, quick shipping with tracking. The gun performed perfectly at the range, in fact much better than I had expected. You must remember this is a $300 gun, and also with a $75 rebate, thats $225 total, for a New Hi quality Name Brand! I would put it up against a Glock any day, and its 1/3 the money!!!!!
I came across SOS when searching for S&W 9mm Shield and was surprised on how low their prices were. I could not find anyone cheaper on the internet that could match their prices. My local store was selling them for $460.00. I purchased mine from SOS for $295.00 with free shipping, not to mention a $75.00 rebate from S&W making entire purchase price when done to $220.00. Shipment arrived at my FFL three days from purchase. I will be making all of my additional gun purchases through SOS.
Great slim, concealable, concealed carry/LEO backup gun at a great price. At $298.00 shipped its hard to find a better deal. At the time of this writing S&W has the summer rebate where you also get 2 boxes of critical defense ammo, 2 extra shield mags, and a mag loader for free after registering your gun.
This firearm performs really great and for the price. It was a great price on it.
This was the 4th Shield I have purchased, as I bought this one to replace my mother's Glock 43. I train at firearms classes 5 or 6 times a year, and the Shield is a highly respected gun among most instructors. It's the smallest gun on the market that is built to what Smith & Wesson calls a professional standard. That means this gun is designed to hold up to thousand and thousands of rounds and continue running. My original one now has over 12K rounds and still runs fine.
Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore really came through on this one... smooth as silk transaction... low price and free shipping... amazing!!! I was able to get this S&W Shield for a really great price, and with a factory rebate. For what I paid, I can't buy a cheaper firearm without buying a piece of junk, and this Shield is certainly not junk. I originally thought the wife would like it, but she never got the chance. This one is my primary carry piece. I was amazed with the tame recoil... actually softer than the 25 ounce compact CZ clone that she bought for me. Only problem is, I still need a carry gun for her. Good thing she's picky.
Occasionally I can't carry a full size weapon. Noticed that S&W had a rebate so I thought I would try a Shield out. Much to my surprise I love this weapon. I liked it so much that a turned around a ordered another.
This is a great little gun. I picked it up from the FFL yesterday. I cleaned the gun and took it to the range this afternoon and put 300 rounds through it without any issues or failures. I shot 200 rounds of Federal and 100 rounds of Aguila. When I first received it, the gun seemed a little tight. As others have mentioned though, once you shoot a few rounds through it, it will loosen up a little. The same was true for the trigger. Once you use it a little while, it will get smoother. The large white sites make them easy to see for older eyes. The gun was shooting true right out of the box. I have no complaints with the gun and I am very happy with my purchase.
The price was right and the gun functions flawlessly. Relatively quick shipping one the FFL got there. The 9mm Shield is pretty sweet. I like this gun so much that I'm considering ordering the .45 model before the rebate runs out. Thanks SOSS!!!
Second purchase from SOSS. They take care of their customers. My orders were a little more involved than just click and buy and they were happy to help. As for the shield, I can't tell you anything you probably don't already know. Top 3 carry in my book. Also $247 shipped after rebate and my FFL's fee. Can't beat that.
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.
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.
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!!

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!
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 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!
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.
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.....
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!!
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.
