Picked up my new shield and a TCP jumped into my hands
I ordered a new SW Shield 45 from Palmetto State Armory, it took 4 business days for them to process and ship and only 2 days for it to arrive at my LGS. I consider that a great experience. Thank you PSA. Well while the LGS was finishing their part of the 4473, I saw a nice TCP in the case. Couldn't resist.
I was very pleased with PSA , the whole experience was simple and straight forward. With the rebate my cost for the Shield was $239 out the door. The TCP is very lightly used and was $165 out the door. A full review on both pistols will come after this weekend. A few quick observations. The shield was packed with quite a bit of factory lube, both in the pistol and one of the mags. The sandpaper grip texture is rough. I may end up with a Talon grip,,not sure yet. The ergo's are excellent and the trigger pull seems close to 5 lbs, with a short reset. The TCP..WOW. As many of you know this is an amazing little pistol. Good ergos, very sweet trigger, and this model looks amazing. Now the question to be answered; Which one has more felt recoil? Hmmm. Can't wait to let them out to play.
