S&W 9mm Sheild or PT111 G2?

If you had a choice (ignoring what each costs--I know hard to do right...) Would you go with the Taurus or the S&W?? Just wondering :)

I've owned both... and both are carry worthy IMO. I no longer have the Taurus as I just couldn't warm up to it... due to past experiences with their products and their customer service.

Both shoot well... probably shot the Taurus better than the Shield by a small margin. I liked the trigger better on the Shield... never cared for the trigger on the Taurus for some reason.

If you want capacity... go with the Taurus. If you want something a tad easier to conceal... go with the Shield.

If you can... shoot both and go from there.

I now carry the XD Mod 2sc most of the time... might be something else to consider if the price doesn't matter.

This is a older post .. But I have found the PT111 G2 (12 + 1) as concealable as my PT709 slim .. , which is just a hair smaller than tbe S&W Shield .. The 9mm and 40 S&W Shields are not true single stacks .. They are offset stacked ...
