New Smith & Wesson 30 Super Carry Shield EZ

The Smith & Wesson Shield series of handguns has been one of the most popular carry options on the market for a few years now. Offered in both 9mm Para and .380 ACP, the Shield is a small enough handgun with just enough ammo to get you out of trouble if needed.

Comp-Tac Adds Holster Support for M&P9 Shield EZ

Houston, Texas-based Comp-Tac Victory Gear had already been producing a variety of holster types, as well as other gun-related gear, for many years before they were purchased by HSGI in 2017. Since this merger, they have continued to expand their product lines and offer continually growing holster support for new handguns as the market’s demand directs. With Smith & Wesson’s pistol product lines experiencing ongoing growth, the need for new S&W-compatible holsters never seems to cease. After last year’s release of the M&P9 Shield EZ, as well as its upgraded Performance Center version, yet another new holster need was born. Comp-Tac got to work on it, and now with the following August 2020 press release, they have announced that five of their holster models will now include fit options for the M&P9 Shield EZ.

Back in December of 2019, I was brought out to the Smith & Wesson facility in Springfield, for the unveiling of what I would consider being one of the most important handgun releases within the last year – the Smith and Wesson M&P 9 Shield EZ.

Naturally, this led to the pistol being given the Performance Center treatment with upgraded features and a snazzy new look.
