    I find myself checking the listed vendors at the Smith and Wesson site every day to see if any of the three have any of these guns in stock yet.

    This is the first new offering ever that has me wound up about getting my hands on one.

    My pistol came with tritium night sights, and no external safety. Just put another 75 rounds through it today.
    Very nice shooting gun. Trigger has a nice feel to it, after about 200 rounds I'm starting to get a feel
    for it. Carrying it with an Alien Gear Shift shape 2.0 IWB. Whole set up is working well.

    It came with (2) magazines, (1) 6 round (1) 7 round and a nice compact cleaning kit.





    Great little add-on.... The whole thing came in a cardboard box (minor let down), but that's about
    all the fault I can find. Compared to a straight up Smith & Wesson M&P 45 Shield 2.0 I'd say the trigger
    has a better feel to it.. not by much. The porting doesn't make any huge difference in muzzle climb.
    Shoots accurate, I'm putting 2-3" groups at 6-7 yds, and I'm far from a precision shooter.

    Far from hard to handle. I brought a 'new to shooting' friend to the range today, and he thought
    the kick would've been much more than it was. He liked it, shot fairly well for 1st time out with it.
    yours appears to be the Shield with the 3.3" barrel the one Mike1956 is referring to is the 4 barrel model, if im not mistaken he owns like 2 of the 3.3" shields in .45

    Correct. Mine aren't Performance Center models. I've yet to see any four-inch models available.

    It does not. Fortunately, I already have plenty of Shield mags.

    You are correct, mine is the 3.3" barrel. This IS a Performance Center Shield 2.0, so I want partial credit... only because I wanted to show it off!!

    You get full credit. I'm still waiting to see or hear about someone's 4-inch barreled one, tho...

    These are finally showing up on Gunbroker, mostly in .40 and 9mm. One .45 with red dot installed.

    I suffer from that age old problem - too many guns I want, not enough money to get them. Now, another one.
