The Smith and Wesson M&P Shield is Now Available in .45 Auto

The famed Smith & Wesson M&P Shield is now available in .45 AUTO, giving it a whole new punch for your carry duties.

Smith & Wesson is giving another option in calibers for its M&P Shield line and they take a minute to walk you through its features.

What a great expansion to this favorite American carry gun! I used to shy away from .45 AUTO, having shot 9mm most of my life. I had heard .45 was harder to control with excessive recoil for a pistol. Nothing could be further from the truth. These days, .45 AUTO is my favorite cartridge.

.45 AUTO has more of a push like recoil vice 9mm which I find more of a jumpy type recoil. Both are fine calibers, but .45 provides legendary stopping power so it remains very popular with some police, militaries and gun enthusiasts.

Smith & Wesson has heard the call and now has another great choice for the M&P Shield for your EDC duties.
