About 6 months ago I replace my full size 1911 with a Shield 2.0 in .45 acp with an integrated red laser. Fell in love with it It will shoot anything I run through it even my reloads. Easy to carry and recoil is manageable. But after 100 rounds you will feel the ruff grip texture on your hands. For me that is a good thing makes it easy to hold on to the gun. I will replace the front sight with something a little bigger for my old eyes, but as is it will work. Very easy to carry in appendix carry with a good iwb holster. I am a very happy camper.
