Smith & Wesson® M&P®9 SHIELD EZTM 9mm Semi-automatic Pistol
If you’ve handled a personal defense pistol before, you know the pain. Stiff recoil springs. Stiff magazines. Tiny, hard-to-work slides. Difficult takedown. Well…no more. For those who can’t or just-plain don’t want to operate a standard EDC pistol, we recommend the Smith & Wesson M&P9 Shield EZ. Chambered in 9mm, the SHIELD EZ features a number of characteristics that make it easier to rack, easier to load, and easier to clean than just about any pistol in its class.
First and foremost, it’s hammer-fired, which allows S&W to use a lighter recoil spring. The lighter recoil spring makes racking the slide a heck of a lot easier—without sacrificing the ability to use a wide variety of 9mm loads. To further help you along, the slide features scalloped serrations on the front and rear to let you get a grip.
To make loading the magazines a snap, the EZ’s mags features thumb buttons on both sides to aid in depressing the follower. Loading the SHIELD EZ’s magazines is a painless experience, and putting a couple hundred rounds through it won’t leave your fingers raw.
For those with less grip strengh or arthritis, the EZ is an awesome choice. Furnished with a crisp, light trigger, tactile loaded chamber indicator, and reversible mag catch, it’s an easy-to-use protection option for both first-time shooters and experienced handgunners alike.
