Buy/ Cry gets thrown around a lot , but that doesn't really apply here . The bottom line is that you discovered that you prefer shooting a ( very good ) full size , metal frame DA/SA more than a (very good) compact bordering to subcompact polymer striker fired 9mm .

* For What It Is * , a Shield is by no means inferior or deficient . I would say it is above average for its catagory , and give a reasonable approach to being an " all around pistol " .

Well said. Definitely agree that the shield is not inferior. Very high remarks on the gun and the 2.0 is supposed to be even better.
Definitely prefer full size guns at the moment. Have my eye on a Glock 34 so if I get a decent value for the shield then that may be the replacement.

As of right now, size wise, I probably would not want to go below the size of a glock 19. The compact/sub compact size of the shield just isn’t for me.

Ahhh ! Now , you are getting into further multiple variables , even within the context of +/- full size , with no right or wrong answers , just personal preference ( or not) :

Striker vs DA/ SA
Polymer vs Metal
Exact grip shape vs Exact grip shape .
