    I was going to get one for CC but couldn't find one any where. Bought a Ruger Commander 1911 instead. Now I am glad I did.

    Thanks for the heads up, drymag. I moved this thread to the handguns forum, and I'm going to stick it at the top for a while.

    That trigger issue could as easily be caused by failure to clean properly as well,
    dang sure needs to be re-planned and redone...looks like they shoulda copied Glock better ;)

    I sold my M&P shield .40 after firing about 100 rounds. I just could not get by the trigger that took two men and mule to pull. I could never learn to shoot the gun. Every shot low left meaning I was jerking the trigger, but I could not improve so I sold it.

    My S&W is a little hard to pull, as long as you know this it's not too bad. I do need to take it to the Gun Dr.

    I just looked at my Shield. It doesn't apply with the serial number and I checked it anyway and the thingy disappeared and reappeared like it was supposed to. Only problem was I shot my computer screen in the process. JK

    I've got an MP Shield 9C. Great little gun. Only reason I have any semi autos, CF, is concealed carry. I shoot DA revolver's for fun!
