I have both guns. 2014 Shield and 2016 LC9s. I really like them both. I believe the 9mm platform is perfect for my ccw needs. The Ruger has a much better trigger. The Shield has everything else. I carry the Shield, and use the LC9s as my "grab gun" in my car. The slide safties are not an issue for me on these. What do you all think of these guns? Do you feel one is better than the other?
