At the NRA convention this year, Smith & Wesson introduced a new pistol to their line of M&P firearms. They showcased a slightly larger M&P Shield in .45 acp. Immediately, the CCW world was buzzing about the new 45 Shield due to it’s larger caliber offering which excites “big bore” guys along with the popularity of the M&P Shield in 9mm and .40 S&W. After viewing and handling the new M&P 45 Shield, the main question was, when would it be released? Die hard M&P Shield fans liked the changes S&W did with the 45 Shield and looked forward to calling it their new CCW handgun.
I had an opportunity to get my hands on the new M&P 45 Shield and so far I have to admit, S&W did a nice job with it. It resembles many of the qualities of the original Shield however a few changes were made that sets it apart. The texturing of the grip is much more aggressive and they added low cut front serrations to the slide. Other than those initial changes, this handgun is all M&P Shield.
