Im not that confident read a bunch of people had the same issue..The trigger gaurd looks the same in the sub compact .. most ranges you shoot slow or get yelled out ..take that gun and blast away under stress and see what happens..

      My Shield .45 had a problem. The recoil spring assembly would get caught up on the front of the frame.

      ......causing the slide to sit out of battery....

      ....and causing damage to the guide rod.

      I either sent it back or they sent me a new assembly - either way, while manipulating the slide (dry), it still happens from time to time. I haven't tried it with live-fire though.

        I've taken my Shield 9mm through 4 MDTS classes (Pistol 1-3, Low light), One of Rob's speed shooting classes (which I clocked a 0.96 draw and shoot with it), as a transition gun in Spirit One Tactical carbine course (which it was used a good amount) and taken it through at least 3 USPSA back up gun shoots.

        I can't speak to the Shield 45. I know I've literally trained the shit out of my shield 9mm including fast rapid shooting.

          Thanks Steve I should send it back ..My concern is ill be wasting my time due to thats the design and they wont do anything..so Ill shoot it but I would never trust it.. Not that happy with trigger safety design itself ..the stop ..the reset and trigger in general..Not wasting my time to many other pistols out there
