Smith & Wesson’s line of M&P handguns have sold phenomenally well since the first model was released in 2005. Over its sixteen-year history to date, the collection has expanded to include a vast array of variants and options covering a half-dozen calibers. It has spawned offshoot versions like the Shield and Shield EZ offerings (and now the new Spec Series model), been adopted by hundreds of government/law enforcement agencies and departments globally, and millions have been purchased commercially.
