Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 2.0 45ACP Crimson Trace Red Laser 12088
This is a top concealed carry option for all types of shooters. The 2.0s are made to out-perform the original. By simply adding more steel in the frame to add rigidity, texturing the grip for a more aggressive hold, and cleaning up the dreaded original M&P trigger. Chambered in 45ACP also makes this a powerhouse of a carry gun, and will not beat you up or cause fatigue. The aggresive grip texturing will have you hanging on easily even in the most adverse conditions. This model is made with an integrated Crimson Trace red laser that has a solid beam and strobe setting.

Shoots well, easy to take down and recoil is easily manageable with standard pressure ammo. Only complaint is the slide release is hard to operate. This is the reason for the 4 star rating and it would be 4.5 stars if that was possible. A friend of mine has a the same gun without the laser and the slide release works normally. If mine worked like his it would be a 5 star rating.
It was easy to sight in the laser, an adjustment hex key comes in the box. Mine shot low but after sighting in it is dead on. The pattern from my gun is tighter than the accuracy stated in the manual The tip of my index finger falls naturally on the laser on off button and it is easy to turn on the laser without an accidental turn on or off.
There is a firing pin block that prevents the firing pin from moving forward unless the trigger is pulled. If the gun was dropped from 100 feet up and hit exactly on the muzzle the firing pin couldn't move forward and strike the primer because of the block. Nice feature I didn't know about before my purchase.
The size , feel and weight of firearm is excellent for carry.It's hard to believe it's a 45.I am very pleased with this purchase and it will be one of my favorite shooting and carry firearms.
