Smith & Wesson M&P Shield Semi Automatic Pistol
I've always been a fan of S&W pistols and they're made right here in the USA. I bought the 9mm version with the intention to get my CCW permit. It's the perfect size for my medium sized hands and the recoil of the 9mm is comparable to my .38 spl. Surprisingly accurate out of the box too I was able to get 4" groups at 10 yards. I put 125 rnds thru it at my local range and it appears to like certain brands ammo better than others which is probaly true for many semiauto loaders. Overall I'm very impressed with this pistol & highly reconmend it if you are on the market for a compact 9mm. Comes with two magazines (7rnd & 8rnd) & a slide lock

Great little 40
I got one of these for a small concealed carry. It is small, light weight but surprising accurate for its size. I have the .40 S&W and the recoil is manageable providing for quick follow up shots if needed.

Just got this gun last week and it is fantastic! Put 200 rounds through it today and it was flawless. Shot 150 rounds of FMJ and 50 rounds of Federal HST 124gr. The gun shot very well with very little recoil compared to my M&P 45. Follow up shots were fast and accurate. Had no problems keeping groups of 4" at 10 yards shooting standing. The gun conceals very well and is a pleasure to shoot. I am very happy with my new carry gun.

Wow the best handgun I ever bought!
I love the recoil. I have the 40. I'm in the process of buying another one in the 9. I sold my Ruger SR9 to buy the shield9. My mother and my 84 year old grandfather shot my shield40. My grandfather was amazed by the recoil. Easy to take apart and clean. I have shot 100 rounds while the gun was hot without the gun jamming. Smith and Wesson has the best compact gun and the best price on the market.
