was considering this but pps m2 at 399 is a much better buy and a much better gun I've read.If it's anything close to the ppq m2 then it'll be a great gun

Have you shot both guns? This is a great deal. If you want to throw around price and performance don't miss the Taurus PT 111 Gen 2 for the other end of the spectrum.

i have not shot both, just what i have read from pro reviews. and yes i have considered the taurus as well and read reviews on that. if i could shoot them all before buying one i could but no where around me has all the guns to shoot, heck nowhere around me has any of the guns to shoot.

heres link to pps m2

if you can find the LE version of the pps m2 its even better, comes with 3 mags, 6,7 8 capacity and night sights.

So your point is you read somewhere that others think the pps is a better deal @ $399? If you haven't shot either firearm not sure your post has any relevance as your opinion is based off what someone else thinks. I own both, a shield and a pps m2, and both have there pro's and con's compared to each other. While the version with no safety has been cheaper, this is still a solid deal. Repped to Op for a solid gun deal.

I've never purchased any firearms online before. In a store it's more expensive and a lot less complicated but I had fewer questions. there's a FFL that only charges $20. Not sure what to expect or what questions to ask. Any pointers?

Your question would be "can I check if the firearm seems to mechanically operate correctly and check for flaws and blemishes?" If yes then you check it and buy it. If something is wrong you refuse it.

Your ffl is not selling it to you. You already bought it. They are acting as middleman. You can expect them to accept the weapon, pick it up from the shipment center, do the proper paperwork, give it to you. That's about it.

Have all of your questions figured out, answered, etc. not like you are going to return it after everything is done.

For what it's worth. The shield is great. I own the safety version. Never had a FTE or FTF. I have had probably at least 1500 rds through it. Mine seems to like 124 GR bullets. It takes a bit to learn how to shoot it being a compact short barrel firearm. Don't get discouraged if it takes a bit of practice. I have gotten excellent at shooting it.

Just picked up the shield with no safety last week. Love it so far, it's extremely comfortable to carry iwb.

it was either mp shield or the xds. ended up with an xds .45 a few weeks ago as a ccw and no regrets. and it would of been 15 bucks or so more expensive than this price for the shield without safety after ffl transfer.

something tells me i should pick up a shield as well just to have.

Thanks. My last purchase was a SW99 from a B&M store. I still love that piece but the purchase was a long time ago. I believe it's discontinued now but I never had another pistol fit as comfortably in my hand

I purchased two M&P Shields 9mm last year and they are Great guns, feel good in "my hands". They shot my 147gr TightGroup 2.5gr rounds everytime ( these are very light loads because of my neck, I was very surprised, usually need aftermarket guide rod and springs ). Well the two triggers on mine weren't so good. Especially compared to the two newer M&P9C's I picked up later and an older M&P9C I shot that had the Apex DCEAK ( ? ) kit in it. I do work on my own triggers 80% of the time.
Once my neck epidural and trigger points kick in I want to go try that Walther PPS M2 alongside the M&P9C, Shield, Glock 43, M&P Bodyguard 380 and Glock 42??
Hopefully they'll let me shoot some self-defense lower recoil rounds in them at the range. You're always supposed to shoot their ammo, but I might get lucky at one of the two ranges ( 10% chance ) if I rent at least 3 handguns I'd assume. I guess I just might have to buy their overpriced regular range ammo and then just set it aside and shoot Hornady Critical Defense... ( Hmmm, now that I'm writing this out, this is going to be expensive as hell especially getting new 380 HCD ammo, but worth it Smilie

Everyone's hand... is a little bit different. So the Walther PPS M2 might be a better bet no matter what for some people. But I know the M&P series are internally easy to work on ( at least so far ). Mags... are also easier to come by. Just got 6 M&P9C 12 round and M&P9 FS ones for $20 each with everything included at Botach Tactical, sweet deal. Thankfully a friend needed 3 also, so we could do the deal Smilie

I have ordered one time through GunBuyer and it was a good experience, between June - Sept. 2015 IIRC. They DO NEED serious work on their websites searching abilities, well total overhaul I'd say at some point for sure though. Save the items you want as; bookmarks, Evernote, Firefox Scrapbook addon.... trying to find it again sucks without doing that.
