Smith & Wesson's new M&P SHIELD™ is a slim, concealable, lightweight, striker-fired polymer pistol.

The new M&P SHIELD features a slim design combined with the proven and trusted features found in the M&P Pistol Series. From the pistol's easily concealed one-inch profile to its optimized 18-degree grip angle, the M&P SHIELD offers professional-grade features that provide consumers with simple operation and reliable performance.

Chambered in 9mm for proven stopping power, the M&P SHIELD features a high-strength polymer frame with a black, Melonite® coated stainless steel slide and barrel. This model comes standard with a 3.1-inch barrel, which contributes to an overall length of 6.1 inches and an unloaded weight of 19 ounces. For fast tracking and smooth target acquisition, the M&P SHIELD is standard with a 5.3-inch sight radius and has been enhanced with a short, consistent trigger pull measuring 6.5 pounds. Featuring a quick and audible reset made possible by the striker-fired action, the M&P SHIELD allows multiple rounds to be placed on target both consistently and accurately

Personal preference. Some people like a safety (especially 1911 guys) and some don't (polymer striker-fired guys). Personally, I hate safeties. Your finger should be your safety, as in not on the trigger until you're ready to fire. It's now negligent discharges happen, and any time you hear "the gun just went off" it's because someone doesn't know what they're doing and pulled the trigger.

Because it's a pointless point of failure for a carry gun, which this is.

If carrying in a proper holster the safety does literally nothing for you except act as something that slows you down from using the gun in an emergency and possibly stops you from using it entirely if it sticks or fails.

There's basically no upside to having one on a striker or DA/SA carry gun, and several downsides.

It's why a lot of carry guns don't even offer you the option (every glock ever made for example) and why when a company introduces a model WITH one the big outcry is to offer a model WITHOUT one (which is exactly what happened with the Shield)

you should never have a thumb safety on a carry gun. it's one more mechanical device that can fail, get in the way, prevent you from firing. when a fraction of a second counts, you don't want to be a larger fraction away thanks to fumbling with a thumb safety.

my primary CCW is a Ruger LC9S Pro. the "Pro" is the version without the thumb safety. many of the manufacturers now have 2 version of their compact carry guns which is a great thing. before that, you had limited options except for going with a Glock

well in NJ we can't carry, so I guess your point is somewhat moot?

if im going to my safe to get my gun, flipping the thumb switch while also putting in the mag (which would never be in there by default) isnt going to take time

now, if i forget and try to fire and then get shot, is that a fault of the thumb safety or my lack of experience using it?

if you can't legally carry, what's the point of buying a compact semi auto designed for carry / conceal carry? if you're only concerned with home defense, you don't want a compact gun - go full size with 17 + 1 (well in NJ i guess it's 15 + 1 right?, i forget) with a TLR-4 and a spare mag

Why is a $10 discount getting such a good rating? Sounds like the owner of this company is spamming this forum.
