In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
Nightstick recently introduced the TSM-11G, a handgun-mounted weapon light designed for Glock's G42, G43, G43X, and G48 handguns.
In today's "I Carry" episode we have a Wilson Combat EDC X9s pistol in a Palmetto Leather Works Lo-Profile Elite holster.
These concealed-carry options may not be new, but that's actually not a bad thing.
