I vote for the Shield. My 1.0 was reliable. My first LC9s was not— Galloway sells a recoil spring replacement to fix Ruger’s bad design. Has Ruger fixed it?

My second LC9s tended to pop its magazine when I shot it. Gone.

Also I think the Shields handle recoil better and thus are more shootable.

I like the trigger on the striker Rugers and the first one was really accurate, which was why I gave them two tries. While I have since moved on to even smaller carry pieces, given the choice posed I would pick the Smith for reliability and shootability.

The 2.0 Smith supposedly has a better trigger though the one on my 1.0 seemed fine. I recall the Shield as somewhat thicker and heavier but you can judge this. Both are pocketable.
