Some of the most popular concealed-carry and duty guns on the market can be found in the Smith & Wesson M&P lineup. From the single-stack Shield configuration to the double-stack, duty-size M&P M2.0 handguns, there are many caliber and configuration options in the M&P lineup that appeal to today's armed citizens. However, the company's never had a double-stack M2.0 subcompact model on the level of the Glock G26. Until now.

Smith & Wesson
 announced in late 2019 that it had introduced the M&P M2.0 Subcompact pistol to its product lineup. The latest addition to the M2.0 family, the M&P M2.0 Subcompact pistol features a smaller, subcompact frame that’s sized right for concealed carry. With a 12+1 round capacity in 9mm, the M&P M2.0 Subcompact pistol series includes the full array of M&P M2.0 features, including an enhanced trigger and improved grip texturing. The new model is available in 9 mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP.

“As the M&P M2.0 pistol series has continued to expand, we have worked to introduce pistols that fit a variety of different needs: from professional use, to recreational shooting, to home defense, to concealed carry," said Jan Mladek, general manager of Smith & Wesson and M&P brands. "The M&P M2.0 Subcompact is designed for every day carry–its shorter frame makes it more concealable while still maintaining a higher double-stack magazine capacity. One constant across the M&P M2.0 series–whether it’s a full size, compact, or subcompact–is the legendary reliability and shootability of the M&P pistol.

The M&P M2.0 Subcompact pistols ship with two magazines, including two magazine extender sleeves for use with M2.0 full-size and compact magazines, as well as a limited warranty and lifetime service policy. The new M&P M2.0 Subcompact is available with or without an ambidextrous thumb safety, with an MSRP starting at $569. The pistol has a barrel measuring 3.6 inches long and an overall length of 6.6 inches. Total weight of the gun, unloaded, is 25 ounces. The pistol is also equipped with all-steel, three-dot sights, while the slide and barrel are made from stainless steel and treated with the company's Armornite finish.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
