Tell us about shooting this gun.
I thought it was pretty accurate. A little hard to rack at first.
How does it fit your hand, how do you like the sights, how difficult is it to rack the slide, how would you describe the trigger pull, and how would you describe the recoil?
The Shield 9mm fits my hand great! My hand is pretty small and it works really well for me. Love the sights. A little hard to rack the slide at first, easier after shooting a bit. And it’s more technique than anything. Trigger pull is a little longer, but not too noticeable. Recoil isn’t bad. Overall a good gun!
How reliable is it?
Pretty reliable, only ever had it jam once.

Very easy to take apart and clean.
Would you recommend this gun?
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
I think the Shield 9mm is a great concealed carry option! Love shooting it. The slide is a little hard to rack but just takes practice. Mag is a little rough to load, other than that it’s great!
Anything else you would like to share about the gun?
Doesn’t feel cheap, very high quality.
