In the right hands you would probably see little, to no appreciable difference. Possibly true even in the wrong hands.

Hey all...

I'm not a frequent poster on the forum but I have been browsing this thread and figured I would jump in to the gun discussion.

Anyway, down to the question...anyone have feedback/experience with the Smith & Wesson Shield? It has some positives and negatives from my original look, was just curious if anyone could share anything. Link below...

Thanks!

They are a great tool for the intended purpose. Hard to go wrong with one.

I have to say the election sucks because I went looking for a couple lowers this weekend and the price has went up about 50% on them. They are starting around 110 now 6 months ago I could get them for 70. Makes me want to grab one or two more

That's crazy about the Troy, Mo. bank president. I actually know him and found out on the r1 forum! I go to church with him and would've found out today but happened to not go. Wow, good for you Dave.

I've picked up a few over the past couple of months just in case. No FFL is required for any other part.

Which irks me. It's a rifle component. Not a full rifle.


I should pick one up myself. Unfortunately, I'm broker 'n broke so out of the budget right now.

.
That's just because its the least changed out part of an AR but can be used for a long gun or handgun style build. It's also the one part that will be regulated in further assault rifle regulations
