JWT just reviewed the Smith & Wesson M&P45 Shield Performance Center pistol. Worth a read. Now, Smith’s announced a new M&P45 Shield M2.0 with an integrated Crimson Trace Laser. A big plus: the new gun will also come with the much improved M2.0 trigger as standard equipment. And it has a very reasonable MSRP of only $499. Here’s their press release:

    • Agreed. There’s no reason these companies should not be putting in lights instead of lasers. A simple rechargeable cable like those Olight mini’s would be appreciated too.

      • Ever buy (wife bought) a TV with integrated VCR? Not a good formula.

        Want a mounted light? Buy a light and mount it on the gun.

      • Would be amazing to see a laser/light combo that does not require a switch and instead is integrated on the back of the grip too. Too many situations where weak hand or not having the ability to turn on the light/laser come into mind when really needing them. Say like, already down and if you are given the ability to simply draw and pain the laser then you can hit your target. Big deal to me. Won’t buy anything else.

  1. Is someone gonna make a holster for it or are we gonna Mexican carry and risk blowing our fish sticks off?
    No one makes a Retention holster for my Springfield xdm.45acp 4.5″ brl. That will accommodate the CT laser
    So there sits my $100 laser in the safe for the last 2 years. I use the laser for a cat toy now-a-days.ffs!

    • Crossbreed Holsters will probably have a holster for this pistol out soon, since it is a S&W and will likely have a large and widespread distro. IMHO, Crossbreed is the best at accomodating autoloader pistols with accessories mounted on the rail, like CT Laserguards.

    • Belly band.

      You can spend $70 at Crossbreed, or you can buy the same thing on Amazon for under $20.

      They’re absolutely awesome and work with every piece of clothing you own.

    • for a holster for the shield 45 w/ integrated ct laser check out J&J leather Store, on amazon e-bay or

  2. If only. 🙁
    You see, many of us in NON FREE states (commie kalifornia) simply cant own. Cause the gray suited overlords that rule, say these are just too DANGEROUS in the hands of the unwashed serfs. Of course, law enforcement is exempt. Ain’t freedom and liberty great?

  3. Relentless Tactical The Defender Leather IWB Holster For S&W M&P Shield At $40 From Amazon Is The One One I Purchased. Shot My M&P Shield CT Edition In 9mm For The First Time Just Two Days Ago (7/31/2018) At My Local Indoor Range. Pretty Sweet Firing Pistol For Self Defense Especially Considering The $399 Price OF Admission. Granted I Added a Pair OF TruGlo Tritium Front and Rear Sights For Another $100.- But Still All In All Very Happy With This CCW Weapon Of Choice…

    • The Only $500 “Paper Weight” I’ve Purchased In The Last Year Was A Google Nexus 6P Smartphone That Has Since Died On Me And I Have No Way Of Repairing It – Huawei in China Makes That Phone And I Don’t Want The Hassle Of Shipping It All The Way Back To Them…
      My S&W M&P Shield 2.0 However Is a “Paperweight” I’d Trust My Very Life To…
