    Wow! I would have guessed the weight had more of a difference. I'm not sure if these are unloaded or loaded weights.

    Both I imagine are very fine. I suspect that the Version 2.0 is much better than the original. I also hear that the Shield 45 in 2.0 is PHENOMINAL!

    That being said. I still like my baby Glock over both SS9's

    Hello Peeps,

    Just wondering how many of you have owned an M and P shield?
    Did you like it? Why or why not?
    It’s about $200 less than a Glock.
    How is the trigger pull?
    I don’t like a long trigger pull.
    I hated the trigger pull on my Taurus PT111 and my Ruger LC9
    Not looking to bash any firearms just looking for some input.

    Yes, the G43 recoil more because it is quite lighter. But just how often are you going to shoot defensively as opposed to ju

    I personally believe in shooting my carry more than any other, for obvious reasons.
