This is the best concealed carry handgun I have owned. Grip is great. Accurate and a pleasure to own.

This is a great conceal-carry especially for the 40 S&W caliber. I don't think you can go wrong with this one. Thanks Hinterland for the great deal and fast shipping !

I finally got my .40 Shield in November after waiting almost 3 months. But it was worth the wait. What a fine pistol!
So far I have put approx. 100 rounds through it and not one problem. I have read where some of the early guns had problems with the magazines falling out when they were fired.
But I have never had that happen with my gun. I think S&W got the problem corrected. I also have a S&W Model 4006 that I bought over 20 years ago when they first came out, and this Shield is much more compact, lighter, and easier to fire.
I particularly like the 3-dot sights. Much easier to line up than the 4006.
I think that if you can ever find one of these Shields, you won't be disappointed.
