If you like the Shield, check out the Bersa BP9cc. . $350 delivered, same size as the Shield, sweet trigger with short reset, comes with two mags, etc.
I'm really happy with mine.
I'm with you Schniitzer, on the Bersa BP9cc. This is an excellent quality weapon, and has a fantastic trigger. At $374 (Academy Sports) you can't beat it. I guarantee it is as good, if not better than anything else in it's class. Unless you have money to burn, this gun cannot be beat.
