If you’re looking for a subcompact pistol for concealed carry then the M&P Shield deserves your consideration. The .40 caliber Shield is a slim frame single stack pistol that weighs in at just eighteen ounces. The Shield is available from the factory with tritium night sights and it includes two magazines. A flush fit six round magazine for concealed carry, and a seven round magazine with a pinky extension which allows the shooter to get a full five finger grip on the gun. It’s nice to have that option.
