I sold 2 to by one but hey it did not cost me anything out of pocket and I got it at a great price $399.00 If I waited till whenever one should up I could of got the cop price at $389.00 but who knows when that would have been.
I have been trying to get one for my wife for a few months. After trying more than a few compact pistols she was about ready to get a Ruger LCP and I said lets just se how this one feels and what the trigger is like. We never even fired it but after dry-firing it she had made up her mind. It really has a very short trigger pull compared to everything else we tried and it breaks “like a glass rod” at about 6 1/2 lbs. I can’t wait to see how she does with it and I may even have to shoot that day as well I take her to a place to shoot on Mondays where ladies shoot free and just teach and train her but I’ll have to drop the big bucks on the next day At least now I have a little something to look forward to.
I did not realize or I should say I forgot they have one without the safety The one there is small and stiff. I will just train her to use it all the time but carry it off that way if it gets in the on position she will just turn it of instinctively For me it is un-natural NOT to sweep with my thumb as I have had 1911’s for years. Funny thing is my newest home pistol is a Ruger full size 9 and safety UP is how it works. I do not like that but practice, practice, practice makes you remember. I can’t complain as I traded a 30 06 for it and still have 2 left I did not need 3 30 06’s.
Does anyone know if they make an aftermarket safety for the shield bigger?
I just sold a S&W airlite j frame semi enclosed hammer with crimson trace concealed carry grips and a S&W 9 to get the money to buy her the shield. I used to think like you do about revolvers but after spending a lot of time with my wife at the range I noticed she really shot pistols better because of the reduced recoil and shorter trigger pull. They seem to intimidate her less than the little revolver did. I think it finally clicked when I saw how well she shot my kimber ultra compact 45 with no laser compared to the 38 with. I am currently still carrying one but I am not intimidated by it.
