Thanks Branded for the reply. I shot a rental Shield at my Range before I bought the EZ. I seemed to do ok. Even with the bad arthritis. Since then I watched a video on pushing the frame forward as opposed to just pulling the slide back. Kinda like when I used higher pounded bows. When I decide to buy something I get frustrated when it is not available. Gonna see what M&P’s are in my local gun shop’s tomorrow. I like what I have seen on the 9 Compact 4 inch.
