Absolutely love it
Picked it up yesterday and finally shot a few rounds today. Love the natural pointability and the accuracy potential with factory ammo. Need to see how it likes my reloads

Excellent value carry pistol.
I piggy backed on an order from a friend as it seemed like a good deal. I was very impressed with the size weight and trigger pull when we received them however I wasn't able to shoot it until yesterday. Now I'm really impressed - this gun kicks less than a Glock 43 and I can actually hit something with it. I had no trouble nailing a stump sticking out of my pond 7/7 at about 20 yards. I will put some night Ameriglo night sights on it and it will become my new carry gun.

P.S. I ordered 2 more for my sons.

Nice hard-hitting pistol at a really good price
I am very pleased with the S&W M&P 45 Shield I received from PSA. It was in perfect condition upon arrival. I received it at my local FFL and immediately proceeded into the range for testing. The pistol was clean and seemed lubed OK but I field-stripped it to inspect clean and lubricate the internals myself before firing.

My experience during that session was very comfortable shooting tight groups and no difficulties of any kind.

The S&W M&P 45 Shield is a very nice application of 45 ACP in a polymer framed gun. The grip texture felt very nice and while it isn't as "romantic" as firing 45 ACP out of my 1911 it certainly was great fun to shoot and completely reliable so far. A nice hard-hitting pistol at a really good price. Thanks!

great ccw in 45cal
For a gun with iron sights I love this gun. The only thing that could make it better for me is an RMR optic on it. However Until May 1 my EDC rotation alternated between a Kahr K9 and a Glock 43. After shooting about 3 mags thru this Shield 45 I sold my Glock 43 put the K9 in the safe and strapped on the Shield 45. It has always been a policy of mine to never sell a gun.
Therefore the Glock 43 is my first gun that I haver ever sold. The G43 just didn't fit me quiet right. To sell the Glock 43 and replace it with this pistol is saying a lot. My hands are large the grip on the G43 and the size of the bullets were too small. Mags would not drop free because my firing hand was always touching the base plate of the G43 mag. That was a problem for me. For me Mags must drop free and easy when I press the mag release. The Shield 45 does everything I expect out of a EDC pistol. It shoots great and I expect it to get even better as I break it in. The grip is a little larger than the G43 but the same as the K9. 45 cal is a tiny bit more expensive but I do not intend to use it as a range gun. The way I roll with all my guns is Lots of dry practice and 1 or mags of live fire per month so the shield 45 fits my life style. It may be a while before it is loose enough to practice type 1 2 and 3 malfunctions without the use of bandaids but I have finally found the perfect pistol for EDC. It's like S&W made this gun for my hands and way of thinking.

Buy it
Outstanding value for whoever wants to carry a 45 without the size and weight of a traditional 45. Very manageable recoil with quick follow up shots. All you need to do is hit some metal plates to know it's worth the slightly bigger size than the 9mm version.

Great Value
Gun arrived from PSA quickly yet the box was fairly well crushed - UPS? Anyway cleaned the gun upon arrival and discovered how difficult it is to reassemble the 7 round magazine. Took over an hour and considerable experimentation becasue the owners manual gives you little information about the trick to get it done. (What were S&W engineers thinking when they designed the mag?) On the first trip to the range I put 85 rounds through the gun - Federal & Winchester FMJs and Federal and Sig JHPs in 230 gr. 200 gr. 165 gr. No problems encountered with any of the ammo. Accuracy was good with all of the ammo shot. The Shield is much more pleasurable to shoot than the XDs 45. While the Shield grip texture is very aggressive it is not painful like the XDs. My XDs is a reliable and accurate 45 but it is so uncomfortable to shoot that it just doesn't encourage practice at the range. In my opion the Shield 45 is the one to buy and with current prices and rebates it is was a fantastic bargin.
