Good to hear. New or used? Feel free to not answer, but mind if I ask what you paid if used? From my reading this is #1 on my list for carry/ my next purchase, but I haven't had time to research what the going price is on used yet.

This Shield popped up used locally and I jumped on it. New they are impossible to find, word is Hoffman's has 50 people on the Shield waiting list :?
What I paid..I'm not saying but it was very fair for what I got.(I wouldn't have bought the gun if it was a rake job)

Damn, good thing I'm planning on waiting a little while. 50 people waiting list is crazy 8O

No problem with the price, figured that may be the answer. Thanks

I installed a set of night sights on the Shield tonight. I originally went with XS Big Dots. But come to find out the rear sight of the XS's is only a painted stripe(according to the company, a tritium vile can't be fit into the the sight block....)I did not like this at all. I also has fit problems with the set I received.
I ended up using Truglo TFO sights the fit is nice and installation not to bad and the function is really great.
