Here's the more desireable no-thumb-safety version (also $349, but the $20 coupon doesn't work for it)

Both links seem to be to the same gun/serial number. Trying to decide if I want the thumb safety or not.

OP link goes to model 180021, mine is model 10035 without a thumb safety.


And no, you don't want one. They provide no objective benefit whatsoever in a carry gun, and simply add a useless potential point of failure and an extra step to take when you actually need it in an emergency.

If you don't want the gun to fire, don't pull the trigger. Don't, in fact, even touch the trigger at all until you want it to fire. That's one of the most fundamental rules of gun safety.

meanwhile you can find documented cases of people who died because someone tried to use a gun in defense and forgot to turn off the safety... or ones who died because they touched the trigger thinking that was ok because the safety was on and it wasn't.

Just skip the safety entirely and always treat a gun as if it's loaded and ready to fire and you'll be fine.

Personally I take no safety as well. But the price is right. I carry a g43 myself but grabbed this to stash in the car.

I'll chime in with another perspective and say I put my daily-carry Glock 26 in the safe and replaced it with the external safety Shield as soon as I had a child on the off chance that one day he was able to somehow get his hands on it. The Shield is either on my person or in the nightstand safe and it's probably just me being overly paranoid, but the extra step is reassuring to me as a parent now that I see how clever kids are. (It's a relief for him to finally be old enough to understand the basic Eddie Eagle gun safety rules, though)

Not to mention, and YMMV of course, that the external safety is unnecessary and it can be carried exactly like the Glock. I had a 1911 as my carry pistol prior to the Glock and it wasn't difficult to get back into the habit of sweeping the Shield's safety off, but there are plenty of people who carry the Shield safety-off, with a round in the chamber, in a holster that adequately covers the trigger.

That said, I've got a couple thousand rounds through mine and this is a great price for a great pistol regardless which model you choose, and I would buy another in a heartbeat if there were any need to have another. Thanks, OP.

I think so, because it holds less than 10 rounds. Most liberal states feel there is no need to have more ammo in a magazine.

Irrelevant- in CA if a specific model isn't on their approved roster it's not legal (and the roster keeps shrinking every year)

The only CA legal model of the Shield 9mm is
M&P9 Shield (Blk) SKU 187021

So neither of the ones linked to so far.

Not sure which model I have, but the shield fits my "banana hands" quite well, and that was a big concern.

Every parent in America teaches their kids not to touch the hot stove top / cook top, because it is really dangerous. The exact same lesson is easily taught to kids regarding guns in the home. It's not hard to teach.

I believe this is only taxed in SC, not GA as stated in the OP.
