M&P9 Shield

Brand new Smith&Wesson M&P9 Shield ultra subcompact pistol. Not much news yet, but kinda looks like it might be a single-stack. I MUST BUY!

They are all saying single stack, but the grip doesn't seem too much smaller.

Definitely a move in the right direction. The overall dimensions seem like they're not that much smaller, but the width is definitely less. The biggest killer of my Glock 27 is the width. If this thing pans out, it will likely become my new off-duty EDC.

Never liked my M&P...was a 9L though. Dumped it even after changing the sights. My Glock 26/27 are my carry guns. S&W do make some other nice guns though. Personal preference though.

I would be very interested as well. I have been looking at the M&P compacts with safety myself.

My Ride: What else?
I guess they're going after the Walther PPS and the Kahrs of the world...really good move I think.

I personally preferred the M&P's grip to the Walther, but the thickness was the final deciding factor for me.....obviously going single stack with the M&P will address that.

I will probably want one

S&W is doing what Glock claimed they were going to do 2 years ago. But don't worry- Glock's putting out some FDE colored frames, so all it well.

LOL..

I have more than Glocks.

Glocks are hard to beat, but I am not blind.

I have an HK45, Colt 1911, etc...

I carry a S&W 638 more than my Glock 26 or 19.

I do keep a Glock in my car and my office at all times though.

I'm just giving you a hard time. The way I look at the more variety there is in the market, the better.
