I pre-ordered one back in mid October 2012 at Turners in Rancho Cucamonga for $399. At the time of purchase I was told they would have it by late October 2012. Fast forward 3 months later and it is still not in. I have made a once a month call to Turners since then and have received the same answer every time. They have explained that S&W just started to make the California compliant version in December 2012 and that it should be in next month. Wondering if anyone else has any further info. Or if anyone has received their California Shield yet.
