Paid $329 before tax and DROS. :D

The trigger is great but too heavy for my taste.

How in the world did you get it for that cheap?

I thought the same exact thing about the trigger at first. After putting 150rds through it, I realized I didn't even notice it while I was shooting. It's still heavy, but it didn't affect my shooting whatsoever. Congratulations!

Nice, anyone know where I can find one in SoCal? Every gun shop I talk to tell that they HAD a couple. Always a day late!

Getting a better view.

I think I'd prefer the white warning label on the right side of the slide than the "rooster comb."

The white warning label on the side means owners of those M&Ps live on the wild side, LOL

...anything is better than the rooster comb though.

Now the question is, where can I get one for that price!

Congrats on the Shield...think you got yours the cheapest and I paid the most! :mad:

It's all good...happy shooting!

It's probably LEO discounted.

LEO discount. They quoted me $380 when I put down a deposit four months ago. But when I came in to pick up my gun, the price was 329. :D Not going to complaint. :43:

Off topic, but what kind of flashlight is that? Make & model...

Looks like a Fenix LD10. I have one myself. Because it runs on 1AA cell, it's an awesome option for EDC and regular use. The only feature it doesn't have, that would have been nice, imho, is a momentary-on switch (like most Surefires).

I think the LD10 might be replaced by the LD12 recently though (which has a momentary-on "tactical" feature):

Nice!!! How's the break and reset compared to an m&p full size or c model

Am I correct that they are still not available to the general public? I saw that the release date is November.

They have been available in non-CA compliant versions for a little while now... some people here have SSE'd them if not exempt. The CA-compliant version is supposedly due to arrive in Oct.

Nice, waited 4 months for mine and i get it tonight. Ive got an old faithful holster on the way too.

I am very impatient, and not pleased with the CA LCI version. So, got the 9c jailed and waiting for shops to start SSE the Shield.

They are trickeling in here and there....a few of us have had them since a few weeks of them making the roster!

I didn't SSE mine nor did anyone I know that has one!

We have very similar tastes. If I was to empty my gear out it would look pretty similar.

Skosh... I'd stop bragging about that if i was you. That shop could get in a LOT of trouble for illegally selling you and the other non-exempt persons these non-california legal models. Keep it on the down low! Just my opinion though...

Oh and thanks Scootle for the flashlight info! Wasn't aware that the LD10 didn't have a momentary-on feature... i definitely want that feature!
