Smith and Wesson releases an improved pistol for its M&P Shield line of 9mm pistols, and it may be the right choice for your concealed carry needs.
Have a look at a good review of the newly-released Smith and Wesson Performance Center M&P Shield 9mm handgun, an upgrade on a conceal carry favorite with the standard S&W Shield. The ported slide is a new feature that helps reduce some of the felt recoil and muzzle flip that can be experienced in smaller framed pistols.
The handgun is matched against its predecessor during day and night range practices along with a strip and assemble comparison of both guns.
With some great features such as Hig Viz fiber optic sights and enhanced trigger, the Performance Shield 9mm pistol gets you on target quickly and accurately. This is an upgrade on the Smith and Wesson line of M&P pistols nicely packaged in a smaller frame for concealed carry use. It may well be the right gun for you, be it for professional duties or as a citizen.
