A gun that has taken the 9mm crowd by storm over the years is now available in the popular .45 ACP with little change, and the changes that are made are great upgrades.
Smith & Wesson have been making guns for so long that it’s amazing when they continue to improve. The M&P Series has produced some of the most dependable firearms over the years. When they developed the Shield, it took the series to a new level with the concealed carry crowd.
The thing that most people have said over the years is that they wish they’re missing the .45. Now, that’s not a problem.
The S&W M&P Shield 45 is sure to take the world over. While it may be a bit longer than other guns in its class, the sleek design and dependability will offset the length.
