The Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield is one of the best concealed carry handguns in the world. It’s really that simple.
Of course it has serious competition in the battle to be the best carry pistol in 2020. And there is a wave of new subcompact 9mm pistols and compact 9mms that have made things even more difficult.
But some people love a Smith & Wesson, especially the trigger set that just seems to suit some people better than others. It’s a unique striker fire action that is all S&W’s own and if you’re into guns then you should definitely try one as you can just click with it.
If you do, the M&P Shield is going to be the best carry gun in the world and we got no problem with that. Especially at this price.
Don’t Wait Around
This price is not going to be here for long. So, don’t dither. If you want to pull this trigger then, well, pull the trigger.
It’s an 8+1 9mm Luger with a 3.1-inch barrel and the whole thing measures in at 6.1 inches long. Crucially, S&W focused on a slimline profile that makes this gun work better for concealed carry.
So, although it isn’t exactly a pocket gun, Smith & Wesson has worked hard to create a lightweight gun that you can carry all day without being uncomfortable.
S&W fans will tell you this gun doesn’t work like a Glock. You don’t buy it and then start modifying it to fix the problems. It’s a gun that’s good to go, out the box, and there’s not much you can or should change.
If you’re building a collection, you need a Smith & Wesson in there. At this price, this is probably the one you want.
Hi there: I am the happy owner of a S&W, M&P Performance Center, ported. What is your recommendation to clean the barrel ports after shooting?
Unicorn’s tears, which I will sell you for $1000 a bottle. It looks like water, smells like water, but you’ll have to believe me… unicorn’s tears. In truth, whatever works for you. I don’t think you need potions for that gun, it’s a fairly solid firearm that’s designed to be used and abused. So an oily rag will probably work just as well.
