I'm told that Smith and Wesson is going to make them in 9mm and .40SW.
They've got Jerry Miculek running the darned thing, of course it looks good. Jerry could make a flintlock look good. After the hype dies down, we'll see how it stands up to the intertubes.
In that regard, my buddy David has a little pistol by Taurus, the Taurus Slim in 9mm and David really likes that little pistol. David is a retired State Police lieutenant, so he's been around guns his whole life and when he and I were talking about Glocks and Smiths this weekend, he pulled out the Slim and told me that the more he carries the little gun, the more he likes it. It goes bang every time he pulls the trigger, it's lightweight and slim, and it's stainless steel. He showed me that you can double-strike a reluctant primer and David said that he gave about $300.00 for his copy.
I'm not going to rush out and buy a SW Shield based on the hype, but the market is filling up with single-stack 9mm concealment pieces. Can Glock be far behind?
