Editor’s Note

“The Shield 9 Plus is about as small as you can go and still have an easily useable platform with ergonomic controls across a range of hand sizes…any smaller and compromises begin to occur. That said, Smith did an excellent job with this pistol, making it accurate, easy to use, and wholly concealable.” – Sean Curtis

By The Numbers

Accuracy
Standing at 7 yards, I fired 3-round groups at a target. Most of my groups were in the 1.5- to 2-inch range and I found this to be pretty good for the size of the gun.
Reliability
This gun ate up everything I fed it, I ran 115-grain Remington UMC and 147-grain hollow points with a grand total of over 500 rounds. There were zero failures.
Customization
Other than sights and holsters, there are limited options to accessorize this gun.
Ergonomics
The 9 Shield Plus did a really good job of accommodating my large hands. I was able to reach all controls without adjusting my grip.

“The rest of the industry has had a couple of years to catch up but the P365 is still an impressive micro 9mm that is super popular as a CCW option.”

“The Sig P365 SAS retains the high-capacity, great trigger, and reliability of the regular P365 but by going snag-free it loses standard sights, a useful slide lock, and tool-less disassembly.”

Taurus GX4

$318.99

“Swinging for the fences at $392 MSRP, the 9mm Taurus is designed specifically for those that want to concealed carry but also don’t need a tricked-out Gucci Glock to do it. Ergonomically, it’s okay. It feels good in the hand, but its diminutive size is both a good and bad thing. As far as controls are concerned, everything is more or less where you expect it – all within reach and easy to manipulate. The magazine release might be a tad too shallow for my liking, but it’s billed as a carry gun, and carry guns typically carry smaller controls. Also, the grip is short…our bigger-handed reviewers had to adjust their grip not to blow their fingers off…So watch out for that.” – Johnny B.

Taurus GX4 TORO

$319.99

“The Toro is Taurus red dot ready version of the GX4. Not only does it run a red dot, but it has a mag extender giving a total capacity of 13+1. Its magazine release was a little shallow, but it’s billed as a carry gun, and carry guns typically include smaller controls. With practice we got used to it and the mags cleared freely when dropped. The magazine extension adds round and also makes the gun easier to handle. As far as shooting, it feels way less snappy than we anticipated. Overall, we liked it!” – Sean Curtis

final verdict

“I was impressed with the 9 Shield Plus and can’t imagine the task of keeping a gun small (but useable for a wide range of different-sized people) while increasing capacity was an easy thing. Smith & Wesson pulled it off. All in, the 9 Shield Plus is an absolutely solid performer and a great value for the price.” – Sean Curtis
