Default Shield :Performance Center .45 ACP Owners?

Hello, do any of you on S&W Forum have one of these,


and does it have less recoil than a comparable standard Shield
.45 ACP pistol?

I own one. Shoots great. Don't know the answer to your question.

Don't own one. But I might be more helpful than the last comment.
The felt recoil should be about the same; the porting should decrease muzzle rise so you can stay on target a little easier for follow up shot.

I've fired a lot of guns. The Shield 45 recoil is easy, even one handed.

I've got one. I haven't fired a regular shield 45 so I don't know. My PC shield is easy on the recoil and is a pleasure to shoot. I like the sights and trigger as well.

Can I ask what ammo, 165, 200, or 230 grain out of the 45 Shield for defense?

I have a PC model it has less recoil than a XDs 45 however compared to a non PC shield I do not know as I have never fired a non PC model. I carry 230. The trigger is nice the sights are good. The pistol has 500+ rounds with no issues.

I brought it home today.

Think I will trust the Double Tap 200 grain Bonded Defense
