    I've got a Shield in both 9 and 45, and had to stipple the grip to keep them in my hand. For some reason S&W thought the textured grip surface was enough. Whoever thought that ought to be slapped.

    I'm a Glock guy, for sure, got a bunch of them, including a 42 and a 26. The 42 is my wife's and I prefer a Kahr P380 for pocket duty. It is obvious to anybody who has pocket carried that the 43 and the Shield are NOT pocket guns (neither is a 42, for that matter...).

    But for small belt carry, I definitely am able to tell a difference between the Shield and the 26. Don't let people convince you that you might as well go 26 of you're gonna go small gun. I carry my 26 when I want small, but can still go a little bigger. I prefer the Shield, especially during these warmer summer months. I much prefer the 8rd mag for the extra pinky space.

    I frankly hated my dad's 43. I don't exactly know why, but it was absolutely not as awesome as my Shield.

    I'm a bigger guy and prefer the Shield IWB. But I opted for the performance over the 2.0. The better trigger and sights sold me on it. It looks good too, which is not something I can say about Glocks. So yeah, I'm a little biased. :)
