I concur... 40 > 9 literally and figuratively. lolI recommend the 40. Not only is it S&W's round, the gun is single stack and you lose the high capacity advantage that makes 9mm worthwhile. After a year or so when all the bugs are worked out I'm getting one for carry. I've shot the compact M&P in 40 and liked everything but the thickness.
Dont know what they told you in your area..but here in NC, they told me they wouldnt get any more 40 cals in until June 15th.nbeal4495 said:Decided on the 40 but now just gotta wait for them to come into my local gun shop..but I'm second on the list
I bought an LC-9 (LM) recently as well, to go with my G19. The LC-9 is a world of difference to shoot. After an hour of shooting it, I vastly improved on the G19! Made the Glock 19 feel like a BB gun!Crazymxrider53 said:I actually looked at both of them when I bought my Ruger LC9. My local gun shop then sold out of the 40 cal and only had 9mm left in the Shields. I would have went with the 9mm but thats just me. Instead I bought the LC9 just because it was 100 bucks cheaper. Still single stack in the magazine and the same size as the Shields.
My wife has the SR9 and loves it. I go shoot it when I want to shoot a 9 and I will say it is a damn nice gun. I am still partial to my Glocks but I can't find anything bad to say about the Ruger!I bought an LC-9 (LM) recently as well, to go with my G19. The LC-9 is a world of difference to shoot.

Nothing wrong with a 9mm, and ammo is definitely cheaper! No matter what the diehard .45 ACP guys will tell you, none of them would like to take a 9mm to the arm/leg/chest!Donn said:Picked up a Shield 9 earlier this week. Why 9mm? Because that's what my full sized and Compact M&P's are. Not gonna get into the 9mm vs 40S&W p*ssing match. 9's cheaper to shoot and with modern ammo is a sufficient SD round. MHO you understand.
