I have no idea if a 45acp version of the Shield will ever come about. But if that's something you're longing to have, I'd imagine the SA XDs45 will be pretty darn close to what you're after.

I hope for the best but I expect no

Hard to imagine as the XDs 45 is the bang right now. Just got one recently and have put several hundred rounds thru it. No problems.

Competition spurs the market, the XDs stole a lot of the Shields thunder so I wouldn't be surprised to see a 45 acp version soon. I have a Shield 9 and like it very much but I like my new XDs even better since it's in my favorite caliber.

I certainly hope not!!!
Why would you want a gun this size in a 45????
If you use the 'best' defense ammo available today in the 9, 357, 40, and 45 there is less than 5% difference from the best to the worst when it comes to incapacitating a human!!!
A 45 would carry A LOT less ammo, recoil A LOT more, and have A LOT less terminal effect with this short of a bbl!!!:eek:

As Jeff Cooper use to say, " A good big man will always beat a good little man." Jeff as you know was a huge proponant of the 45 acp.
