Hello all, I bought an M&P Shield for concealed carry during these crazy times. I'm 5' 7" 145 pounds and find the pistol to be very concealable. I ran 100 rounds through it the first day at 3 and 7 yards. My three yard groupings were all very tight with all bullet holes touching one another and at seven yards the were all in the same 1". I really like the trigger on it. It was a little rough or gritty feeling at first, but after a thorough cleaning and ten rounds she smoothed out nicely. It has a vey clear reset after you fire a round, so much so that without realizing it my finger went to that reset point naturally without me having to think about it. I picked it up at Academy Sports for $399.00. I also picked up some 147 Grain Federal Hydroshock bullets for everyday carry. All in all a very concealable, accurate, low recoil and great trigger. I needed a gun that I can belt carry, is lightweight and that I can conceal which is tough because I am a skinny bastard that wears close fitting clothes (wranglers/slacks/dress shirts). All of that to say I highly recommend it.
If any of you have any questions about it I will be happy to answer them if I can.
Great buy! I don't own an M&P but have a friend who is 100% satisfied. In my opinion, the more responsible people there are that are CCWing, the better off we all are.
You may already be set in this department, but make sure you stack your Pb just as deep as your Au and Ag. Not for some epic end of the world battle, but just because it ain't going down in price, and supply could easily be cut off before the Keynesian Experiment hits its finale.
The M&P lineup is an excellent choice. I've had my eye on the VTAC 9mm for quite a while but am hoping they start to produce a .45 in that model.
Used to carry a M&P 9mm compact. Great little gun. Eventually switched over to another brand/model because I wanted something a little more concealable. Still miss the M&P though.
