Im currently carrying this Shield as my EDC while my XDM is out getting work done on it (pics in the XDM section). I prefer my XDM. The Shield is just a touch too small for my liking, and action doesnt feel as smooth. Not to mention I had a gnarly thumb injury in April which made flipping the safety off impossible.
I own a mess of S&W revos, I carried a 4506 for years on duty (great gun for reliability, horrible ergos), and now I'm issued an M&P40. The M&P is just as reliable as the Boat Anchor (4506), but the ergos are wonderful. It is an outstanding weapon.
