    I regret missing out on the shield when they had some great rebates and folks were getting them for sub 200$. But I picked up a hellcat a month or so ago and am loving it. I paid more than a shield would have cost, but for approx the same size or possibly smaller I'm very happy with capacity, accuracy, and comfort of carrying.

    To each his or her own. Both my gf and I had Shields, and we agreed the platform really wasn’t to our liking. Sold them, and neither of us miss them.

    That's cool. Everybody has their favorites. Just like I don't care for the G43, 365, and many of the recent compact nines.

    I'm currently trying out a G48 but if I don't end up liking it well enough I might try the 4" Shield Plus at some point. (After the prices come way down)

    I sure wanted to get another one when the rebates were going on but I couldn't scrape up the extra coin for one.

    Well now that they’re being discontinued, you can always throw it on gun broker or arms list and title it RARE! Should be able to ask $800..... :)

    Add some hideous white color fill to some lettering then call it super, duper rare.

    Is it a bit snappy?
