Smith & Wesson has announced that it has produced and shipped over 3 million of its M&P Shield line of pistols. Introduced in 2012, the M&P Shield was designed as a reliable, lightweight and slim striker-fired personal protection pistol. Since its introduction, the M&P Shield lineup has continued to expand with new features, calibers and configurations, including the newest additions—the M&P380 Shield EZ and the Performance Center M&P Shield M2.0.

“Over the past seven years, the M&P Shield pistol has continued to be the handgun of choice for personal protection. The M&P Shield pistol design hits the sweet spot between shootability, concealment and power to provide a reliable personal protection pistol,” said Lane Tobiassen, president of Smith & Wesson. “Over the years, we’ve expanded the M&P Shield family of pistols to meet a variety of consumer needs, incorporating integrated lasers, M2.0 enhancements, Performance Center upgrades, and a new EZ version—the first of its kind. We are honored to be the firearm of choice for consumers across the country who have chosen the M&P Shield pistol for their personal protection needs.”

The M&P Shield is available in .380 Auto, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 Auto, and features a slim profile and 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim. All M&P Shield pistols ship with two magazines and have an MSRP from $399 to $854, depending on configuration.
