Smith & Wesson’s new M&P SHIELD™ is a slim, concealable, lightweight, striker-fired polymer pistol. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W, the new M&P SHIELD features a slim design combined with the proven and trusted features found in the M&P Pistol Series. From the pistol’s easily concealed one-inch profile to its optimized 18-degree grip angle, the M&P SHIELD offers professional-grade features that provide consumers with simple operation and reliable performance.

Chambered in 9mm and .40 S&W for proven stopping power, the M&P SHIELD features a high-strength polymer frame with a black, durable, corrosion resistant finish, coated stainless steel slide and barrel. Both models are standard with a 3.1-inch barrel, which contributes to an overall length of 6.1 inches and an unloaded weight of 19 ounces. For fast tracking and smooth target acquisition, the M&P SHIELD is standard with a 5.3-inch sight radius and has been enhanced with a short, consistent trigger pull measuring 6.5 pounds. Featuring a quick and audible reset made possible by the striker-fired action, the M&P SHIELD allows multiple rounds to be placed on target both consistently and accurately.

The S&W M&P Shield 9mm is just an awesome carry pistol , period. I owned a 9mm Shield in 2012 when they first came out and loved it. Now for some reason I thought I'd try a larger frame gun for a while so I sold the Shield and bought a Ruger SR40c and was not as happy with the concealability due to the slightly larger size, it was a fantastic gun also but just too large for summer carry. So I have decided to go back to the Shield and will probably never get rid of this one. This gun is a bit different than the 2012 model I had....... it is better , tighter, more refined, and it shoots better right out of the box. IMO the best carry firearm out there. This was may 3rd purchase from Bud's and as before it was effortless and pretty quick. I ordered it on saturday and snail mailed a USPS money order to Buds and had the gun at my FFL on the following Friday morning. So six days is pretty darn good considering it was purchased on a weekend. Price was better by $25 to $45 at Buds compaered to my local gun shops. Bottom line is buy the Shield and buy it from Bud's.

Bought the S&W M&P9 Shield 7+1/8+1 9mm 3.1"
M&P 9 shield lives up to the hype. First time ordering from Buds Gun Shop and I couldn't ask for anything better. Well informed about my order by emails when order was placed until it was shipped. Thanks again Buds Gun Shop I will definitely be back

1. The gun is accurate in grouping. After about 200 rounds I could put 8 rounds in about a 4\" diameter circle at 20 yds., but low and left about 3 inches from bull\'s-eye. I can adjust my targeting. After 100 rounds my partner who I purchased this weapon for put 7 shots in the kill zone of the target and 1 wound at 10 yards. She had never shot a weapon ... EVER.
2. The weapon is comfortable in my hand (medium sized male hand) but slightly on the small size. Fits my female partner\'s hand very well.
3. Price at Bud\'s was great.
4. Purchased insurance at about 1% of the weapon value, but was not needed.
5. Manual safety made both of us happy since she is inexperienced and I am not a regular shooter.
6. Light, small, easy to conceal.

1. The slide is very hard to pull back for a woman mostly due to the smaller spring having to work harder. This may be due to her tendonitis, but it definitely is a tough pull compared to my G17.
2. The slide lock (called this by S&W) is not a slide release. I have read on this from many people online after I purchased. With the slide retracted, it takes 2 thumbs with a lot of pressure to release this by pushing the slide lock only. The instruction manual stated to pull back on the slide then press the lock and let the slide release. Works well this way, but I may have purchased a different weapon for her knowing this.
3. Due to my partner having weak hands, she had a couple of casing discharge issues, until she modified her grip from what I was taught to a stronger front end control. After that only jammed at the end when her hands were tired.

For me, good weapon even with the negatives. For a person with strong hands, it would still be good. If you have weak hands, I would look for something else, with a slide release, not a lock and maybe a longer barrel so the spring would not be as tight.

Great pistol. I got the model with the external safety...makes me feel a little more comfortable when I wear it in a belly band holster. The Shield shot good from the 1st shot. It shoots to point of aim, is accurate and has not jammed. I have been just shooting low cost American made ammunition at the range and it gobbles it all. Solid and well made.
