Ordered one today for $399 as after reading reviews and seeing various YouTube reviews I drank the Kool Aid and decided to get one. It will likely be late next week at the earliest. Sounds like the best trigger yet on a M&P.
Opting for two here for wife and I.
And for those buying the Shield, do you have the compact version as well or are you choosing the Shield over the compact?
I only have a full size and was planning on purchasing a compact. Now I can't decide if I should purchase the Shield, a compact or both.
I think I will need to see both side by side and maybe shoot both side by side. I shot the compact previously and thought it was comparable to full size, but since MD doesn't have CCW, I bought full size.
Now that MD may have CCW soon, I'm looking into compact and now the Shield. For those that say they can CCW the full size, I find that it is way too large for me to conceal and carry comfortably all the time (in my house, haha, because I live in the Peoples Republic of MD).

Here's a video through Shooting Times Magazine. It includes an overview plus some live fire.
"Arms are the only true badge of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave." - Andrew Fletcher, 1698
"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass." - Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto
"Among Other Evils Which Being Unarmed Brings You, It Causes You To Be Despised." - The Prince, Nicolo Machiavelli
I must say that S&W sure have been able to generate a lot of buzz for this. Hats off to the marketing department over there.

As the great warrior poet Ice-Cube once said, "If the day does not require an AK, it is good."
I would like to see a comparison with the PPS.. The pps is taller than 26, and a little less than the g19(just talking about height) . that is why I was looking for a CM9. but if the new trigger is good enough I will go for it..
