I've been carrying the 9mm for years, and added the .45 last year. It's been 100% reliable since day one, but I still carry the 9mm daily. Force of habit I guess.

The wife has the 9mm Shield, what is the weight difference with the 45? I have been thinking about one but so far am sticking with my P320 Compact with a 10 round mag.

The 45 Shield fits the hand really good. I put a Pachmyar grip sleeve on mine. The recoil is less than expected for a 20.5 ounce gun. Very accurate also.

I've never held a 45 Shield . I have small hand and my Kahr CW45 is the 1st DA triggers I could reach correctly in 45 acp . I shorten the mag well so I could carry it in my front pocket with no problems . The only thing I dislike is you must be careful that the spring is on the take down pin is in the correct location . If you screw it up it will lock the slide open after every shot . I like my Glock 27 better . .
