And I love it already. Shot my friends 9mm shield a few weeks back and had to have one. After searching the last few weeks I finally came across the 9c at l l guns in battle ground ( great people by the way). No huge price up either. This thing is hardly bigger than the shield. i think the extra 100 is well worth the extra capcity. I love that new gun smell. Plan on taking it home after work and giving it a good clean and lube. Now if I could only find some 17 round mags.
