I have a Shield in 9mm and it has alittle over 1000 rounds now and it has been an outstanding pistol. Recoil in the 9mm loading is exceptionally light for a 9mm that small. Reliablity and quality are dead on,trigger is good,sights are good,handles well,and is very accurate even part reasonable SD distances. I would throw a vote for the Shield.
