    My LC9 is a tack driver and shoots to the sights. I have over 1000 rounds through mine and no complaints. In my opinion the best carry 9mm out there.

    I really like my Shield in 40. One point to consider is, and I'm not sure, but are the Rugers regular carbon steel? If it will be subjected to a lot of heat or humidity, the Shield is stainless with a very tough coating, and seems darn near rust proof to me.

    I had watch a video on the shield and they put it to a test and that is in water,mud and dirt,I think sand also and the only problem was with the sand.All the others no problem from the way it looks.I know that sand would of been a problem.It had a problem to cycle and then the trigger if I remember right .Just to give a idea on it.

    The Ruger has a better trigger, by far.

    I had both the LC9 and Shield. I didn't like the 2 mile trigger pull so I sold it. Kept the Shield, put in a Apex carry kit and trigger and have had a blast with this fun little Gun. It's my edc and it eats anything I put in it. Reloads and all.

    Clearly, some have not had the opportunity to shoot the LC9s or LC9s Pro.
    Trigger is crazy good.

    Ruger LC9s vs S&W Shield 9mm

    I have a 9mm shield that I carry often. I also carry a glock 32, and two sigs P220 and P226. I live in California and travel to the San Francisco Bay area often where people freak out and call the police every time they see a glimpse of handle or even printing, so the shield is a nice option to have when you need to keep the gun completely hidden with zero printing. The shield is a very common carry gun in CA due to the roster, and I really like the little gun.

    If you can get a police SIG SAUER, you'll never look back.
    I am happy with my LC9 It accepts and shoots cast better than many other brands (without throating)
