The shield is my favorite carry gun. It is comfortable to carry, and I shoot it well. The mag in the gun has a Hyve extension giving me 10 + 1 and I carry a spare 8 round mag. The spare is either carried IWB or sometimes in pocket carry.

I like minds it feels good in my hand. I think that’s what I’m carry this summer.

I EDC the M&P Shield 9mm with the 8 round mag in the gun and carry an extra 7 round mag. I pray I never need any of them.

I pray I never have to use none of them. But this world is on fire with the devil doing his world. But I like the pistol and I think I’m carry it more.

I EDC a Shield and use a Remora mag holder to carry a backup 8rd mag. Not a fast reload deployment, but it carries well in a pocket and no lint. Also carry spare mags in the truck console.

Good idea, keeping spare mags in your truck. I have an extra mag but have always kept it in my range bag. Not any more! Thanks!

I didn’t want to stipple the pistol. So I got a bicycle wheel tube cut a piece off and made grip out of it. I think Im carry two spare mags with me all the time.

I rotate between the shield and a couple other options. When I carry it I carry with the 8rd and an 8rd spare. I bought the talon rubberized grips for it and they came with a wrap for two mags included for about $20.

I just seen them grips the other day. How many round did y’all put thru the pistol before you start carrying it.

I have the Talon rubber grips also. I put them on 3 years ago and they are a great addition but the strip for the mags are worthless as they came loose after a few months. The Talon granulated grips are too rough for CC if you carry close to bare skin. I have well over 3k rounds through mine now with 0 FTF/FTE. Been my preferred summer EDC since 2014.
