I saw one last weekend at Beikirch's in East Rochester, NY ( Beikirchs Ammunition | Guns, Ammunition, Targets, Reloading Components, Optics and Sporting Goods ). I also handled the Beretta Nano and my wife had purchased the Ruger LC9 several weeks ago. We both love the Ruger (although I own a Glock 19 Gen 3) and I was surprised how thin the S&W Shield was. My complaint against my Glock is the thickness of the grip but the Smith Shield was REally thin. I found the Beretta Nano a better fit to my hand (medium). Have to say I loved the trigger on the S&W Shield and the Nano was good too.
