LCP vs Shield in Size

I've been carrying my LCP alot lately since it has been hot and I wear cargo shorts mostly. Been thinking about the new Shield, but don't know how the size compares to the LCP.

If anyone has both, and could post some pics comparing the two side by side, atop each other, etc., I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Hey richeyo2, get your camera! LOL.

I want to say the Shield is more along the size of the LC9 and XD-S in size.

Don't have a side by side of the LCP. But here are a couple side views of the LC9 & Shield. Also side views of a S&W Bodygaurd, Shield, LC9, & XDS.

The LCP is a little smaller than the Shield. The Bodygaurd & the LCP are close in size so maybe these pics will help.

The Shield does have the extended mag in it, in the pics which make it a bit longer. The BG is to the far right in 3rd pic.

Thanks! Looks like it just might work great in a IWB and conceal quite nicely.

I carry my LCP in a pocket holster, & the Shield looks too large for that.

I can carry the Shield w/the reg. mag. in cargo short type pants but not jeans. I use a cheap Uncle Mike's IWB holster for now, it fits both my Shield & the XDS.

Also the the Shield is sweet shooter OTB IMO, really nice trigger.

If you have a LGS that has either the PF-9, LC9, or PPS in stock, that's the size range of the Shield. Many Holster companies use the same holster model # for the Shield as their PPS holsters. At 19oz, the shield is closest in comparison to the LC9.

I can pocket carry my Shield in a Fobus pocket holster in both my Cargo Shorts and 'Relaxed Fit' jeans. Regular/Standard Fit jeans would probably be too snug through the thighs.
My Avatar shows the PF-9, Shield and XDMc for comparison.

if you want the smallest pocket 9 you can get get a kahr cm9... the r9 is way too expensive and only a tad bit smaller. Kahr cm9 will be sub 400 even though their msrp is in the 500's. Unlike the shield msrp 449 going for that or more.

I like to sport my Skinny Jeans, you know what I mean!!! J/K of course!
Honestly I've never tried to pocket carry the Shield in jeans, I usually through in the BG.380. But will fit in khakis for me as well as cargo's I mentioned earlier...
