Identified a condition
We believe this condition is largely limited
However out of an abundance of caution
I wonder how much the lawyer cost to come up with that useless information.
What is wrong with the gun? Design, manufacture, assembly or wear (short term).
It was a sad day when I discovered my universal remote control did not in fact control the universe.

Did you hear about the latest study.....5 out of 6 liberals say that Russian Roulette is safe.

My Shield

I have 2 Shields 9mm & 40 both have safties I do not use them. I do wish S&W would make a safety lever sticking out more like a 1911

S&W Shield safety

I have both 9 & 40 shields I carry them safety off. Safeties are way to small to use in a hurry.

Link didn't work for me.

I had a Shield for a couple of years and never heard of a safety issue.

I think this is OLD news.
