    I just bought a Berretta PX4 Storm compact .40 cal. It is one of the best guns I've shot in a while. I've shot just about everything that can be concealed plus many more.lol

    You'll like the M&P Shield. Just read the instructions about getting the slide off for cleaning. It's got a little wire lever you have to push down on inside to get the slide off. That's the only thing I don't like, but not a big deal. They are great CCWs and shoot nice and straight at the range. Good choice!

    On the shield, you can push down on the 'wire lever' or just pull the trigger.
    I just pull the trigger when removing slide.
    Take mag out.
    Rack slide 3 or 4 times.
    Swing take down lever down.
    Pull trigger. (always point gun in safe direction)
    Remove slide.

    Always visually verify the chamber is clear and no she'll casing is in there before pulling the trigger!

    Good info night rider, I would like to add these tips and steps in your order.

    the 'wire lever' or just pull the trigger.
    I just pull the trigger when removing slide.

    Take mag out.
    Rack slide 3 or 4 times.
    Visually verify chamber is empty
    Swing take down lever down.
    Pull trigger. (always point gun muzzle in safe direction) also rear of gun is not pointed at your face, body, or anyone else when you pull trigger with slide release disingaged.
    Remove slide.

    Just a note of the past, When in my late20 or 30's .Servcemurchandice store was stop selling hand guns and had a sale , I bought 4, 22 pockit guns revolvers(Bohemia,made usa) for#10.00 a pice and they gave away 1 box of lone rifle with each of them . still got 2 of them. Carry one a lot. I figer i am not goin to get in a fire fight and would think some one would be in a world of hurt if shot from my pocket thru the face. Still work great. I am a small guy ,71, so guns are about 40years old, can hide in my hand. By the way how dangerest is ,40 year old 22 bullets?

    Only danger is that they will not lite off when you need them.....Probably will still fire, but not what I would want in my ccw.

    Last time I took my Mauser out, we were shooting 1930's surplus ammo without a problem. Jim

    Ammo is fine if it never gets wet. For a ccw gun I would definitely get new rounds though.
