Introducing the Ultimate S&W Shield Project!
Over the next couple of months I’m going to be addressing some things on the S&W Shield to make it the best concealed carry pistol that it can be.
Some of the things that I’ll be addressing:
- Reliability: First things first, I want to make sure the pistol will eat any and all of the defensive loads I can get my hands on.
- Trigger pull: The trigger on the Shield leaves something to be desired. It’s not horrible, but there’s room for improvement.
- Sights: The Shield ships with some basic 3-dot sights. They are narrow, and invisible in the dark. These aren’t acceptable on a carry gun.
- Thumb Safety: It’s too small! I’m not 100 percent sure how I’m going to address this yet, but rest assured, I’ll find a way to make it just a little easier to swipe off.
- Grip: One thing I’ve noticed with drawing the Shield from the appendix position is that my fingers slide on the front strap a little, which causes me to re-grip the pistol once it’s out of the holster. This is no bueno.
