    You know that ain't gonna happen. I have one. I don't carry it but it's a well made gun.

    I wish they'd offer a rebate on the Victory.

    Go to a store and see how it feels in your hand. That's what kept me from buying one. Rather slim grip which was the point of the thing, but 45acp recoil with that is not something I want to get off rapid shots with. I do think the M&P45C is a better option.

    Love mine, carry it inside waist band with a sticky holster. Both the gun and the holster are awesome. If your only going to have 7-8 rounds in a gun they might as well be large.

    Let me think. Would I want 8 rounds of .380 or 8 rounds of .45...hummmmm? And for all the people that are saying it is hard to control, Have you shot one? I have and if you wish to look at my post with my Shield .45 you will see the 1st seven rounds fired from the pistol. It is easier for me to control than my MillProPT 145....

    I have an M&P Shield in 9mm slumming up my gun safe...I really just do not like the trigger. It is very accurate and the stippling on the grip offers great traction. If it wasn't for that trigger (and the single-stackedness) it would be really good.

    It also could just be the particular unit I got my mitts on but the trigger is smooth if I place the tip of my index finger on the bottom half of that sectional trigger but when I grip it, my finger naturally falls right in the curve between the two segments, causing it to be very gritty.

    If he (OP) can carry it daily and hit what he's aiming at... that's all that matters.
    We are not talking about the PT845, and not even talking about caliber per se. We're talking about the Shield 45 and a request to be talked out of buying one.

    I will never buy a S&W polymer pistol. I can't accept their trigger design. I've read of the "safety" blade on polymer triggers. Think about that, and then look at the trigger on a polymer Smith.
