Smith & Wesson's M&P Shield, the company's (nearly) pocket-size-but-full-power handgun, now has a powerful ally in its corner for assisting the concealed carrier in their own defense.

Crimson Trace now offers a green laser Laserguard for the M&P Shield. Released at the end of last month, the Laserguard (part number LG-489G) puts a green laser with instinctive activation on your favorite small-but-mighty handgun.

Powered by a single 1/3N lithium battery and offering 2 hours of run time, the Laserguard attaches to the Shield's trigger guard and is activated by the middle finger of the strong hand. The laser comes on with pressure from a normal firing grip and is factory-sighted at 50 feet. Crimson Trace has partnered with a number of name-brand holster manufacturers to ensure carrying your Crimson Trace-equipped M&P will be as simple as installing the Laserguard unit.

MSRP: $299.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
