Hey Joe, the shield is a great shooter. Currently 600 rounds of WWB and 150 of Hornady TAP down the pipe. Not a single issue to date. My wife is also quite taken with it, so I've been giving a serious look at the Glock 26 gen4. Fortunate to have a buddy loan me one. I'm really liking it a lot. The 26 isn't as slim as the Shield, which could be a factor for some, but for me it's been a non-issue.
