Are you looking to obtain a concealed carry pistol? Do you need more gripping surface than a pocket pistol like the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard, but want something smaller than a full-sized pistol? Smith & Wesson's M&P Shield in 9 mm comes in four different models, two of which are brand new: one without a thumb safety, one with a thumb safety, one that is strictly California compliant and another featuring a Crimson Trace Green Laserguard.

All four firearms feature a white dot stainless steel front and rear sight, a single side slide stop, a patented take-down lever, stainless steel barrel and striker-fired trigger for a short and consistent pull. The M&P Shield includes two magazines, one which is extended and the other flat. The 18 degree natural grip angle gives the shooter a secure hold on the firearm, allowing for more control when shooting.

Weighing a mere 19 ounces, the Shield is the perfect option for a shooter who wants concealable power in a package that fits their hands and leaves them feeling in control.
