S&W M&P Shield 9MM Customized
This is my newest favorite carry pistol. It is compact, it carries a decent amount of rounds and with the right rounds, this weapon save your life along with saving your back, hip and every other part of your body that doesn’t like carrying a heavy, thick large caliber pistol. Normally I carry my H&K USP 45 Compact but as soon as i picked up this it instantly became my favorite small caliber carry and it shoots like a laser.
I have had the gun customized with a standard tightening of the trigger and having the action smoothed out and I added the XS Big Dot Sight system because I think it is one of the best sight systems for quick target acquisition. It provides an easy, point and shoot system. With little need to align that back sight up with the front and then try to get it in between these tiny little posts to hit something. Just put the big dot on the target and if it’s close to center and close to the level plane of the rear sight you’re gonna hit something close to that spot. Well worth the upgrade!
The next customization I did to the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 9MM customized was to get it decked out in my favorite camouflage, the Kryptek Typhoon pattern! The excellent work was done by Controlled Chaos Arms. They do excellent work and they have a great turn around time, if you are looking for custom gunsmiths, check them out. I also want to say that WeaponWorx also does fantastic work and they should also be considered if you are looking for work done as you can see with my Glock Model 22 Gen 2 that WeaponWorx did.
