Brian Mumford: Swapping out the plastic guide rod in a Glock makes it less reliable on
Lee Greger: Both guns are good, as soon as I leave NJ to a free state I will be getting
a Shield 9mm. I have two Glocks a 17 and a 26, I qualified in NE with my 26
for my CCW, then I had to move to NJ. Anyway great video, Sub compacts take
work to get real good placements. I shot a friends Kimber .45 and had 3
shots in about 1/2" at 7 yards.
ChuckHydro: Do a Trigger job on the M&P also if you wish to get a fair test. Obviously
you didn't do the trigger job on the Glock to make it less accurate.
Beetle Mann: I carry an XDS 45, wanted to buy my wife a handgun for carry. Local range
has huge selection of rentals. She shot the shield, nano, lc9, and Glock 26
(gen 4) all were 9 mm and she did the best and bought the Glock. What gen
is that one, cause gen 4 w/ no backstrap has thinner grip.
huntbuc6: I can help if you need instruction....Ha! Funny... but you're having a
traybrook: By the way, I think the grouping was a little tighter with the shield
traybrook: I just got the shield 3 wks ago and love. I dont own a glock and have never
shot one but am really looking forward to getting a sub compact glock.
Maybe not the 26, but 27, 30, or 33.
WesleY Miller: For you guys who love the shield put the talon rubber grips on it and you
will really love it!! I also have many glocks but that shield is very hard
to beat guys! I've put 5,000 RDS through my shield 40 no problems love it!!
Its really easy to conceal as its only .95" thick.
e schmidt: The only thing this shows is which pistol each of you shoot better. Not
the individual gun. I like them both but as a firearms instructor I still
prefer my Glock. Been carrying a Glock for 19 years and I know they will
shoot dirty or clean. Full of clothing lint or not my Glocks will fire.
CWB1863: I own a Shield in 9mm and love it.However, i will be picking up the G26
this weekend for a secondary carry.I borrowed a friends and shot better
with the 26.Overall, both are great and very reliable as hell.
devcon67: I have Talons on all my guns as well. Great grips but not really sure they
are worth the recent price hike but they do make a difference. Seriously
considering the Glock 26. Shot the 19 and really liked it. Recoil seemed
less than the M&P (more of a push than a snap) but that's a subjective
thing. Thanks for the vid.
Josh Reeser: I would actually say that it comes down to which ever you shoot the best. I
will never pick a gun over magazine capacity and how another person shoots
the gun. As you can see in this video each person handles each gun
Daniel W: I love my Glock 26.The only things I have added is Hogue grips,and Pearce
magazine Extentions.I have carried it for more than 10 years with no
Shawn Hinzman: Because we all know AK's are the most reliable and accurate guns in the
Shawn Hinzman: Something you guys didn't talk about was price. The M&P storm is about $150
less expensive than the glock.
rncondie: If you want to test the accuracy you need to remove the human from the
equation. Hits to the left of center for right handed shooters tells me you
are pulling not squeezing the trigger. I own a Shield and the weapon is
capable of repeated bullseyes at 7 yards if I am on my game. Guys you where
not on your game in this video. Laughing, trash talking etc will break a
person's concention and void accuracy tests.
Skip Wilson: I own both...love both..G26 is more accurate to me...carry both depending
on weather and clothing...best of both worlds...
cartoonconn: It's really the shield vs the kahr cw9. That seems like a more fair
CandRreviews: I agree 100%.
CandRreviews: You would probably like the grip on the shield.
Gary Cims: Nice review guys. Here's my story: Wife and I bought first gun 3wks ago,
just before Sheild came out. Went to local dealer with intention of getting
the 26. Dealer made us shoot M&P 9c, SA XD, Ruger and Kahr
equivalents.Walked out with M&P due to better ergonomics and feel with each
shot. Couldn't get over the back strap safety on SA or trigger pull on
Kahr. 26 was a close second to the 9c but we both liked the grip angle,
palm contact/feel, balance and return to target on the 9c over the 26.
tacticalkimchi: Have you had any reliability issues with the M&P shield?
Kirk Van Ness: Too close to call, I would say that the Shield & the 26 are equal, I guess
it wouyld come down to capacity on these!
CandRreviews: I would say the shield has the better trigger but you can improve your
trigger on the glock by replacing the trigger connector. I would recommend
going with a glock factory connector and I believe it now called their 4lb
connector, it used to be called their 3 1/2. Thanks for commenting and
watching the video!
Davey Riley: I sold my G26 after buying and shooting a Sheild 40. It is so much easier
to carry. I prefer the grip of the sheild as well. Both guns perform very
well. It really came down to comfort of carry. Both are great pistols.
Gary Cims: cont'd....Forgot to mention that we hated all the safety crap and levers
hanging off the Ruger. Now I want to get the Shield for a second gun for
CC. Hot summer coming up in GA. Wife has a purse to put the 9c in. I'll be
in shorts and flip flops Ha Ha. I like the idea of a very light CC 9mm like
the DB, Keltec but don't want to deal with the loooooong DOA triggers yet.
Thanks again for your work guys. Keep it up please!
JohnnyBoyCali: Why in the world did you tell him to put the sights below the bulls eye?
Arent sights on top of the gun? You put the sights on the top of the
bullseye and it will hit slightly lower.
DALEK1998: my glock 19 shoots high.
CandRreviews: Thanks for the comment and watching the video!
phishst1cks: whats the point of buying a compact or pocket pistol and then put a grip
ext on it..great vid btw..
skrabio: Most extensive coverage of the Shield I've seen. Very nice. I went from M&P
to the Glock, due to the trigger. Now after feeling and purchasing the
Shield, AND hearing that the trigger system is going to be incorporated
into all M&P's... I very well may be going right back to Smith and Wesson
once this happens
johnj189: I was thinking the same thing. I didn't hear them mention how much time
they've spent with each handgun, which plays a huge role in accuracy.
ironmike65: I don't like Xd's They are top heavy. I'm a Glock guy but I'm liking the
M&P alot more now.
monkey4gsus: As a first time buyer with not big hands, what would you recommend, the M7P
sield or the G26 or G19? Thanks
Allen Nichols: In your opinion, which has the better trigger? For me, that seems to be a
big factor. Currently I have a G26. I've put about 600-700 round through it
and I can't seem to be consistent with it. It's very frustrating.
D3LTA26: Accuracy is within the shooter.
MrJonBilla: Im NOt Against Gloack I Actually Want The G27 But IVe Been Wondering Why No
Springfield XD Talk I Own The XD Subcompact And I Love It
jeff pendo: Because most glocks shoot high and need a 6oclock hold. Great video guys
devcon67: So it really comes down to do you want to carry 7/8+1 rounds or 10+1 rounds
and does the 26 fit your hand since it is a bit chunky...
CandRreviews: Thanks for the comments and watching the video!
CandRreviews: No one I know of owns one unfortunately. I may be able to get my hand on
one from a shooting range so maybe in the future. Thanks for the suggestion
and thanks for watching the video!
Daniel Tejeda: i would say that the glock and m&p are the same
CandRreviews: We have had them break before so I decided to replace it before it became a
devcon67: Don't think they said anything about accurate but AK's can be buried and
mud, run over by a truck and crapped on by a rhino and an elephant and
still shoot. Glock's are pretty reliable as well and no, I don't own a
Glock but I know a number of people who do and they rarely have problems
spookypunky: I have short, fat fingers and am LEFT HANDED. Which one do you think would
fit my hand better?
subysuby: you don't need to replace the guide rod.
jas0nkendrick: so the shield has less recoil than the glock 26? it may be my next carry
Trevor Moore: Keep in mind you also get one less mag and it comes in a cardboard box.
Andy Pannafino: Mention how thin the Shield is? Live mine! Would love compare with M&P 40c,
same family. Can't believe you're using Herters. My M&P's did not like the
MrJonBilla: Im Just Messing With You Man Most Glock Owners Dont LIke Springfields LOL I
Bet Ryan Would LIke It Better Than The 26 No Offense But It Is More
Comfortable My Opion But Thats What Sold Me On The XD If I Lived By You I
Def Let You Guys Review it But Since I Dont I Really Hope You Get The
