The Smith & Wesson M&P Shield
Smith & Wesson got the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits ball rolling with the unveiling of the much-hyped M&P Shield on Thursday.
A compact semi-auto that is available in both 9 mm Luger and .40 S&W, the Shield is designed to be ideal for concealed carry—while still packing a considerable punch.
The Shield is reliable, concealable and affordable—it's going to be shipping with an MSRP of $449. A bevy of compatible accessories are expected to launch alongside the Shield, providing firearms owners with plenty of customization options.
