Smith & Wesson Night Guard Revolvers

May 1, 2009

While the revolver's popularity among American police forces has taken a nose dive in the past few decades, Smith & Wesson has recently introduced a new line of revolvers that I believe will engender new interest from law enforcement, especially for concealed carry by undercover officers and as an off-duty or backup gun.

Smith & Wesson M&P Pistol Fires 50,000 Rounds in Endurance Test

April 2, 2009
Smith & Wesson Corp. announced that the full-size M&P9 pistol successfully recorded 50,000 rounds during eight months of endurance testing.

SHOT Show 2009: Best of Show

March 1, 2009

There were law enforcement exhibits in the lobby, in the hallways, in the meeting rooms from one end of the rambling convention center to the other. And they had a lot of great products on display. Here's a look at our favorites from this year's SHOT.

Here’s a quick look at the latest ammo, handguns, and long guns that you will see in Orlando this month.

Smith & Wesson 327 TRR8 Revolver

May 1, 2008

The S&W 327 Tactical Rail Revolver is best suited to be used by the lead penetrator of a SWAT team, especially since this revolver carries as many rounds of ammunition as the average .45 ACP 1911.

Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS)

April 1, 2008

I was really impressed with the 9mm model of the PPS. Its captive dual recoil spring and excellent ergonomics combine to make an extremely soft shooting pistol. In fact, it's the softest shooting subcompact pistol that I have ever tested.

Smith & Wesson Debuts New Products at 2008 SHOT Show

February 7, 2008
Smith & Wesson Corp., unveiled 71 new product models and extensions at the 2008 Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show held in Las Vegas, Nevada, earlier this week.

Colorado Troopers to Carry M&P Pistols

Are You Safer with a More Complicated Duty Weapon?

August 28, 2007
There are those that would have you believe that you are safer if your firearm is more complicated and there are those, I am one of them, who argue steadfastly against that assertion because the primary purpose of your firearm is self-defense or the defense of others.

Patrol Rifles 2007

August 1, 2007

Go to the Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show, and you will quickly realize that there are a multitude of companies making long guns. The following is a brief guide to help you discover what's available in the patrol rifle and carbine market.

Smith & Wesson M&P15T Tactical Carbine

August 1, 2007

Although Smith & Wesson is one of our oldest and largest surviving gun companies, the iconic manufacturer is a relative newcomer when it comes to tactical rifles. The only problem that I've heard associated with the S&W rifles is their availability. It seems that demand far exceeds supply. Just recently, I received the test sample that I had ordered at last year's seminar.

Smith & Wesson M&P Compact Pistol

June 1, 2007

During my law enforcement career I never had a malfunction or a problem with any of the Smith & Wesson pistols that I owned or was issued. Needless to say, I like Smith & Wesson pistols.

Why I Like Smith & Wesson's M&P Pistol

May 7, 2007
I have gone on the record many times saying that a duty gun should be as simple as possible. Separately operated external safeties, de-cocking levers, and other “safety oriented” accouterments to pistols complicate training issues and slow down weapons handling.

Smith & Wesson SW1911PD Semi-Auto Pistol

March 1, 2007

I think that you'll have to agree that there is a certain amount of irony in seeing a 1911 wearing the S&W logo. After all, it was Colt that brought the gun to market and produced millions for the military and for civilian consumption. But S&W didn't just copy the original design. It has made some changes to the time-honored 1911 to update the gun.

Love the One You're With

December 1, 2006

One of the most frustrating things that can happen to you as a law enforcement officer is being forced to carry a handgun that you dislike. So what can you do if your issued sidearm doesn’t fit you or you just don’t like it?

Smith & Wesson M&P15 Rifle

August 1, 2006

I drove from my home in Tucson to the SHOT Show in Las Vegas this year—it’s a scenic drive that takes a little more than seven hours. Entering the city, I passed a large police motorcade that was just beginning on the other side of the highway.

Smith & Wesson M&P .40 Semi-Auto Pistol

March 1, 2006

I would be willing to bet cash money that if you were to ask any veteran American law enforcement officer who is over the age of 35 to tell you what a “Military & Police” is, he or she would answer “Smith & Wesson’s most popular revolver.”

SHOT Show 2006: Report from the Show Floor

March 1, 2006

You probably think you have seen every possible rifle that can be derived from the basic AR platform. Think again.

Smith & Wesson Fills First LE Order for M&P Pistols

Smith & Wesson Model 66 F Comp Revolver

November 1, 2003

The rude awakening thrust into my face during that time (the late '90s) was the fact that the majority (and I mean virtually all) of the new recruits had never shot a revolver, much less seen one in anything other than a movie.
