Last week I added a Shield 45 M2.0 to the arsenal and I absolutely LOVE it (y)

I hand load and this pistol has been a joy to shoot with both 200 gr flat nose and hollow points.

I love the size and feel of the grip and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite pistols in the safe. The slide stop can be used to release the slide easily with thumb and the mags are easy to load. I drifted the rear sight .02” and now she is “perfect”.

A Tier1 AIWB holster is in the works and hopefully will be on the way soon. This beauty will soon be in my edc rotation along with my Shield 9mm.
I spoke to one of the folks at Magguts who assured me that a +1 spring kit is “in the works” for people (like me) who prefer the flush fit mag but would like another found in there, we’ll see if/when that manifests.

Congratulations with the new pistol. If Mag Guts can develop a flush 7 round magazine spring guts, that would be the cats meow..
I have one of the early Shield 45's without the 2.0 on the side, but I don't think there is much difference between the two?? Mine has been trouble free with all types of bullet designs and types.
I have been diligently investigating the velocity difference of the Shield's 3.3" barrel and a full size 5" and it appears that there is only approx. 50 FPS difference between the two barrel lengths. The reason given is because the 45 ACP is a low pressure round and less affected by barrel length.
With only a 50 FPS difference, the Shield 45 is a natural and clear choice for those wanting to tote the big guy...

I find drifting your sights .02" on your .45acp Sheild a little odd as I had to do the same on my 9mm 2.0 Sheild. Others I've heard have had them spot on POA when they shoot. Gripping issues maybe?

No sir, sights were off from the factory. Three of us tested the pistol and came up with same results. One of us (not me) is a well-decorated rifle and pistol marksman and we are very confident with our findings.

At any rate, the issue was resolved and now accuracy is up to me :)

Update on original post: My Tier1 holster arrived and after much dry fire practice at home and a few solid sessions at the range I am carrying this well-concealed Shield 45 with confidence (y)

I love my Shield 45, it is my daily carry. I had a Shield 9, but traded it to a friend for his 45. The added size makes a world of difference in my hand, and there is just something about that big round.

Just got a 4” PC Shield 45 and need a good IWB minimalist kydex IWB for my edc. Suggestions welcomed.
