    Yea, it only come in the PC version which is unfortunate. S&W has a $50 rebate going on, and the regular 2.0 can be had for $250 after rebate. The 4" PC is approx $150 more with rebate which is more than I want to spend.

    I mostly prefer a snub revolver (LCR), but I have a couple of little 9mm's that I like.

    I had a Taurus Slim. It went bang every time, but it fit my XL hands so poorly that I had to let it go.

    My Glock 43 is great. I carry it from time to time.

    If they are still selling them somewhere, I got a Ruger LC9s pro not long ago for under $300 (IIRC) because they were discontinuing them. I will have to shoot it side-by-side with the Glock to see which I like better, but the Ruger was really nice when I took it to the range.

    Went from P938 to LC9s Pro to XDS mod2 and just sold that about a month ago while could still get close to new for it. Planning to get a Hellcat by summer barring any major issues with. If there are will grab a P365

    I mostly only do the single stack EDC in the summer but when I do it's this one

    Keep trying to decide between it and a Glock 19. Shoot both very well and they weigh almost the same and conceal the same for me.

    Shield currently, but I'd go with the P365 if I did it over.

    And if you move up from subcompact to a more full size frame, I've just recently gotten and love my P250.

    P938 Legion for me. Great little pea shooter and really easy to carry IWB.

    Yes, they are 'PC' guns. I don't know how different that makes them. Some come cut for an optic, but mine did not, though it does have decent fo sights. Without the cuts, they are selling for about $450 online, and they are now also coming in 45acp.

    I picked mine up on trade, like new, with 6 mags and a holster for a s&w 360.

    It carries easily, and it shoots well.

    Here are two 7-yard
    targets on a few newish guns (excluding the Spring 1911) in 9mm and 45. I was checking my instinctive sight picture, which tends to be center hold, and poi. I loaded 5, shot from the draw and followed up with re-acquisition.

    For me what is interesting is the shield groups are comparable to, if not better than, 4 full-sized pistols, including a cz 75b and fns 9ls.

    You can also see the fns, m&p 45 2.0, and RIA Compact require a combat hold in my hand.

    Now, as I practice with all guns, maybe I will plateau with the shield earlier ...

    The shield is one the right of the top target, with both 115 and 147 grain.

    Looks cool but I'd hate to hand one over to the police as evidence after an incident.

    I’m kicking myself for not picking one (P7) up in the early 2000’s when they were much cheaper

    Been carrying a p938 for 5 years. I use a OWB holster from Stoners Holster. The p938 has the Grayguns trigger assembly. Very happy with this combination.

    A 1987 Sig P225 (--not a P6: this 225 is the export version with the lighter, normal Sig DA pull). I would also consider my P6 but it is near-pristine, with better bluing than any of my German Sigs.

    * Be aware that practically none of its components will interchange with the modern 'new age' P225-A1.

    Both the Sig P365 and the Springfield Hellcat are double stacks

    I shot the glock 43 a lot better than I did the shield, and better than the 365 as well. I shot the walther pps even better, but there are not very many holsters for the gun in left hand.

    I got my glock at a charity auction for $850 (for social and family politics reasons I had to go and had to spend dough). my wife was so happy to be bidding on something at the auction and feeling like a high roller that she didn't even care we were bidding on a $400 gun instead of a bracelet and a purse or whatever. since then it's back to the dollar menu and offbrand cereal in a bag....

    Like Tallball I usually carry a LCR but have a LC9s pro that is excellent.
    My HK P7 is amazing but is a little heavy for an 8+1 9mm.

    They are about the same thickness as single stacks, aren't typical double stacks, and compete against other single stacks on the market, so I thought it only made sense to include them.

    Remington R51. But if I had to pick one from the list, it would probably be a XDs Mod2.

    Ruger LC9s-pro with Williams Fire Sights, a hand-all grip cover, and a Laser-Max laser. It's been 100% reliable at the range and carries well.

    In terms of a single stack 9 mm, I carry either a Kahr CW9, or an AMT DAO Backup.

    I'm one of the shield 9 guys. I had the G43, but I think the shield 9 fits in the hand and thus shoots better. Hard to beat when they can be found for under $300.

    Shield 2.0 9mm. I test fired several different subcompacts (P365, Kahr, G43, etc..) and the Shield hit the sweet spot for me in fit and accuracy. Last week for the heck of it I shot a Glock 48. If I had tried it during the selection period I MIGHT have chosen it but I'm so satisfied with the Shield I don't see enough gain with the G48 to change.

    Shield, original version. I think the 2.0 version is better but they weren't out yet when I got mine. I've been carrying it more often lately for some reason, I guess because it just carries really well IWB.
