If you’re set on the Shield and trying to decide between 9 or 40, 9mm is the way to go. The posts above by Blaster and Biggfoot are spot-on.

New to mid-level shooters are going to have recoil management and shot anticipation issues with the 40. The goal is to put rounds where you want them, when you want them, and in this scenario the 40 has no advantages in doing so.

Harsh like sandpaper. Wet sanded down the 45 shield otherwise could not carry iwb against skin. Evey movement left me raw. But one side less, one side stock is fine. And gives good grip...not needed in my opinion on the 9 but helpful in the 45.

Thanks to all for the helpful replies. Based on this, I ordered the 9mm today.

Thank you, I thought I was the Lone Ranger, the 2.0 grip is spiny to me but gritty is close enough, the 1.0 M&P grips more comfortable to shoot plus the 2.0 trigger has way to much travel over the 1.0's

I shoot the M&P Pro 9 mm @ steel, best grip & trigger, hope Smith Wesson makes a Shield Pro
