It’s been just a month since Smith & Wesson debuted its newest handgun, the M&P Shield, and already the lightweight pistol is a big deal, with many positive reviews and a great deal of discussion on the Internet. Available in 9mm and .40 S&W, the Shield combines many of the best features in S&W’s popular M&P Pistol Series in a slim, very concealable package.
Not surprisingly, many accessory manufacturers are bringing Shield-based products onto the market, including one of the top holster makers in the country, CrossBreed Holsters, which recently released their new mold for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield.
With this mold, CrossBreed can accommodate the new M&P Shield in the company’s Supertuck, Minituck, Quikclip, Snapslide and Superslide holsters. The Supertuck, Minituck, Quikclip attach inside the waistband–the Snapside and Superslider holsters are worn outside the waistband. For the later two holsters, simply untuck your shirt or wear a jacket, and they should work well for concealed carry.
“When we see a promising new firearm hit the market, we want to be able to offer our customers the perfect holster to accompany it,” says Mark Craighead, owner of CrossBreed Holsters. “We already offer holsters for numerous Smith & Wesson products, so this new pistol was a natural fit for us.”
MSRP’s vary by model, between $48.50 and $68.
