m&p 45 shield
The M&P 45 Shield is a polymer-framed pistol with a steel slide that rides on a spring-loaded, recoil-operated mechanism. The slide is released when a barrel hood engages an ejection port and the underlug contacts a steel block in the frame. The gun is designed to shoot a single-shot shell from a distance of two feet. A dual recoil spring assembly returns the slide to its battery after discharge.
The M&P 45 Shield’s grip provides an aggressive texture that covers more surface area than the standard M&P Shield grip. This makes it easy to maintain a good grip even during extended string firing. However, the M&P Shield’s lack of texturing on the forward thumb position is critical for controlling recoil. The slick polymer does not help a shooter’s hands.

The M&P Shield is equipped with two magazines, one for six rounds and another for seven rounds. The extended magazine makes it too long for concealed carry, so the flush magazine is the better option. The M&P 45 Shield is similar to the M&P Shield in terms of its grip texture and controllability. You can buy both of them for a reasonable price. The M&P Shield is a great choice for concealed carry.
The M&P 45 Shield’s controls are right-handed friendly. They are located on the left side of the gun, where the magazine release lever will sit flush against the frame. There is also manual safety on certain models, which will prevent accidental discharge when the pistol is dropped or mishandled. While it is not mandatory, this extra feature may be necessary if you have less experience shooting. You should consider this if you intend to carry a handgun.
