    1. You guys are missing the point, even tho this is coming from the custom shop this is not your idea of a custom gun, it’s theirs, they put it out and if you like it you buy it, if not oh well, if you want a custom gun, send it to a custom builder, they are still rolling in an assembly line just at a (hope) better quality control

    2. So why make a pistol that is built for concealment and ease of carry and make it harder to to do its job? Why would you bother getting a Shield with all that crap on it instead of just getting something else from the MP line that already has a longer barrel? Creating a solution to a nonexistent problem.

      1. Why not? You can still buy the original Shield if you don’t like this… Just because you don’t like it doesn’t mean there isn’t a market for it. Just out of curiousity, what other single stack does S&W offer with a longer barrel?

      2. I have been carrying a Glock 26 with a JPoint milled in AIWB since 2011. It isn’t any harder to conceal than a 26 without the optic. This will be the same.

      3. Thinner profile makes it easier for some people to conceal than the thicker M&P 2.0 Compact 4 inch. 4 inch barrel gets noticeable better expansion than 3 inch, especially three heavier clothing.

        Winter I can conceal a 2.0 Compact 4 inch appendix just fine, but I prefer the thinner profile on the summer.

        If this was milled for an RMR I’d jump on it personally.

    3. Why not something fo the M&P 380 ez is this your forgotten gun there are a lot of people using them dont they matter
      I have looked for a lazzer the only one I can find is a universal looked for an inwb holster the only one I can find is a universal whats up or am I just looking in the worng places
