Local Gander mountain has a used M&P 40 shield for 250? being a glock guy I have no idea about these. That seems reasonable. FO or NO.

I don't like 40's, but that's a good price.

If you already shoot .40S&W and like the caliber I would FO.

I'd personally prefer one in 9mm or .45ACP but that price is about 100 less than new retail.

I have had one for about 4 years and love the gun, I would buy it at that price.

I do wish I had went with 9mm sometimes, the recoil can be a bit snappy, it's not bad though.

Good price for one.

I let a friend know about it. I don't have any other 40 so he might pick it up.

I have a Shield replaced with a Glock 43

I carry a Shield in 9mm. I have all the other M&P's too.

I had a Shield in .40sw and it was the only gun I've ever shot that I felt was unshootable.

Recoil is poorly managed. Had to reposition hands each shot. Damn thing felt like it would turn itself in my hand. Eevn made my hand sore from the hard recoiling. Had a junk PF9 for some time before writing it off as non-functioning. Those have a rep for hurting the hand and what not, but I had no trouble with that gun, even in the 250rd break in that I did in like an hour.

Don't buy. Or maybe mine was special. Was bought brand new.

Just picked up a new 9mm shield yesterday. $400, plus came with a $50 gander gift card... which I promptly used on a 350rd box of blazer brass which was on in store special for $69.

I love the 9s, the 45 is much grippier and I thought I would like it till I carried it. It's like carrying sandpaper :-(

Never shot a keltec in 380 I take it.  My Shield in 40 shoots easy in comparison.

Considering you can get a new 9mm one for $330, I'd pass. But then again, I'm not a .40 fan.

.40 is very snappy. Keep thinking about sticking in a 9mm barrel and convert but a new 9mm is only $300 where a barrel and two mags would be a little over $200. Hardly makes sense until S&W offers replacement barrels and for under <$100.

Decent price if in good condition.

I'm not a .40 fan. Bought a shield 9mm for $319 delivered with ffl fee from Palmetto.

Damn good gun... I've got one and it's a very accurate carry piece.

At $250 I say FO.
