Like KG7IL mentioned, I would certainly add the XDs series to your short list. I have every intention of picking up one in .45 for my summer carry. Also like mahall stated, .380 is harder to find and more expensive than 9mm when you do find it, I had a BG .380 and absolutely loved the pistol, perfect for pocket carry but the ammo issue wasn't worth it so I sold it.

I haven't shot a Shield so I can't help you there, nor any of the XD's, but I have shot the Glock 42 and it is a great gun. .380 ammo is easy to find in my area and for about $20/50 rds. The early issues on some G42's seem to have been solved and guns built in March and later seem to be good to go. I've shot 4 or 5 different types of .380 ammo with zero failures to function from out of the box.

I had a Shield but the grip seems too thin for me, so I moved on. I recently picked up an older S&W 3914 that I can highly recommend. It's a single stack 8+1 small semi auto, 25 oz empty and a great carry pistol . Mine is the "sissy " version, the Lady Smith.
