Although I voted for the Shield, my current summer carry is a Kahr CM9 with a Streamlight TLR-6 and custom IWB holster to match. Replaces a Taurus TCP because, duh, 9mm vs. .380 in a package that carries almost as small. What’s not to like?
Glock 43 is OK, I guess, except for the big honkin’ boogerhookhook on the mags. That’s the part of the grip that’ll print, if anything, so I just don’t see the point on a ccw gun.

My point is, I don't want gun companies to get the idea that gun owners have short memories when it comes to dalliances with gun control. I'm perfectly happy to give up all Smith & Wesson products to help drive home the point that consumers don't forget that kind of betrayal.

Everybody has an aversion to some kind of handgun, sometimes for reasons that make sense to them but don't make sense to me....for example, S&W and the safety lock thing, as well as getting cozy with the Clinton administration, Springfield for their stand on state politics in (I believe it was) Illinois, the list goes on. I say, buy whatever gun feels good in your hand, that you personally like, and don't worry about the rest. You'll enjoy your gun a lot more if you love the way it shoots in your hands.

When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

The only pistol I have an aversion to is the S&W Sigma. LOL, if I want to send my cousin off on a long rant, all I have to do is mention the Sigma. It was THE S&W gun that almost took the company down.
Battle of Wanat: 10 years ago last 13 July, 1LT Brostram was killed in combat killing the last enemy combatant in the outpost. The LT went to the point of decision and made the difference that turned the tide of the battle. The original investigation found the Bde Cmdr, the Bn Cmdr and the Co Cmdr at fault for dereliction of duty. If you want to see what a sarcastic silver star citation reads like, pull up the company commander's silver star.
Of the three I like the Shield better if it is the latest generation.
I myself have carried a 1911, Makarov, and Walther CCP, and liked each one.
