I’ve carried a Smith&Wesson Shield as my primary carry gun for years now. I used it when I Massad Ayoob’s MAG40 class. I used it Citizen Defense Research’s Armed Parent Class. I’ve shot it in matches, and I train with it all the time. I know the gun, and I know what I can do with it.
But the Shield isn’t the only single-stack compact 9mm pistol on the market, and over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be looking at it, and nine others as well, over at Ammoman.com.
