Smith & Wesson gun owners include those in the military and law enforcement; sportswomen and sportsmen, those who hunt to feed their families, and those who are interested in personal defense.

Evidence of Smith & Wesson’s prestige is in plentiful supply.

• “Since its introduction in 2005, the Smith & Wesson M&P semi-auto pistol has become one of the most popular polymer frame pistols in law enforcement. In its various guises the M&P has been adopted by more than 2000 police agencies around the world and has proven equally popular with civilian shooters. On a personal note, the highway patrol of my home state, North Carolina, issues the M&P to its personnel. I know several troopers, and they have told me that they are very happy with the pistol.” — auxiliary police officer Paul Scarlata, writing at PoliceMag.com.

• “I’m a fan of Smith & Wesson. I’ve used both the 637CT and the M&P 9C as my primary carry gun at different points, and the M&P 9 is a strong contender for my next ‘service’ pistol. I’ve owned the M&P 15/22, and have given serious thought to other Smith & Wesson products. They make great guns, the kind you pass down from one generation to the next.” — blogger and North Carolina sportsman Bob Owens on BobOwens.com.

• “Make no mistake, I’m a big fan of Smith & Wesson products – all of ‘em, too. Over the years, I’ve probably owned more S&W handguns than any other brand, bar none. I still remember purchasing a S&W Sigma in .40 S&W, that I used as a duty weapon when I was a police officer in a very rural Native Alaskan Village.” — Pat Cascio, survival blogger SurvivorBlog.com.

• “Smith & Wesson has recently introduced a diminutive carry pistol chambered in either 9mm Luger or 40S&W. This new little handgun is no bigger than some 380s and will no doubt become a trusted companion for many who carry a pistol as part of their daily attire. This new pistol is a component of the M&P line and is called the M&P Shield. As the name implies, the Shield is aimed at the law enforcement back-up and off-duty market, and should especially appeal to those who carry one of the M&P full-size models in a duty holster.” — Andrew Butts, former soldier in the Army National Guard who has also served as a correctional officer in Montana, and is currently with a federal law enforcement agency, on PoliceOne.com
