    S&W shield ......................380!

    Yes it's true. However for me being a Smith fan, I must admit I'm disappointed in the design. Instead of doing what Glock did with the 42 and making it identical to their other models, the new shield has a hideous grip safety .
    They should have made it identical to their other Shield, only in a smaller frame/caliber.

    The only gun in my safe with a grip safety is a 1911. I know Springfield Arms make a excellent duty style weapon with a grip safety and I also know they have been successful and reliable. Just not for me.

    The only reason the .380 has a grip safety is that it is a SA hammer fired gun instead of a true striker fired
