Anyone have a theory on what S&W is announcing April 12th?

    The end of the vid shows the M&P logo.

    The s&w forums seem to be leaning toward a single stack 9mm M&P. Which would be AWESOME.

    That is kinda hard to figure. Lots of stuff talking about how dangerous things are and they use the word "SHIELD" quite a few times.

    Maybe it is a slim, single stack 9, 40 and 45acp like those from Ruger and others. It would be cool to see that. OTOH it could be some kind of non-lethal tool too. Kimber has that gizmo that shoots pepper gas and everyone knows TASERS.

    Guess we'll just have to sit and wait to see what it is.

    Why so much obsession with single stack compacts? What's so attractive about a gun that holds half as many rounds yet still doesn't fit in a pocket?:dunno:

    I agree. My G19 fits my pocket just fine.

    One can only hope that they will announce that all future revolvers will not have the internal lock. :whistling:

    (I can only dream.)

    That was my first thought in another thread, and I know that the trigger mod is coming. That said, I suspect that this video is advertising a different product. I doubt S&W want to publicize the soon-to-be obsolescence of existing stock.

    Single stack the CCW market demands it.

    Maybe it's a single stack collection of compact polymer pistols to include a 10mm. :whistling:

    Maybe it will be a M&P9c but with a $100 gift card that you can take to your tailor and have him sew extra big pockets in your trousers. This makes it a "pocket gun."

    With the word "shield" being tossed out so much, I'm guessing it is not a firearm.

    A while back I called S&W to see if there were plans to bring out the M&P in 10mm. Got transferred to marketing and the guy says no, there are no plans for it. I said oh, the frame can't take it. He got defensive and said no that's not it at all, they just don't see a market for it. I then pointed out they make a 10mm revolver (they did at the time) and was curious about a market that supports the revolver version but not a semiauto version of the 10mm. He brought the phone call to a close promptly.
