Shield EZ

    While most shooters and concealed weapons carriers do not have a problem with racking the slide of a semiautomatic pistol, there is a subsection of gun owners who may have physical limitations that make manipulations difficult. Smith & Wesson is addressing these hurdles with the announcement of the new M&P380 Shield EZ – a handgun that boasts an easy to rack slide, easy loading magazines and a lighter recoiling .380 Auto. The new S&W is set to retail at $399 and will be available from authorized dealers shortly.

    For older or disabled shooters, the suggestion around difficulties racking a semiauto pistol usually lead to the talk of carrying a revolver instead. S&W is providing a new option with the Shield EZ.
