Shield Yourself: The Next Big Thing from Smith & Wesson

Big S&WIn less than a week, Smith & Wesson will announce a significant new product. "Shield yourself," hints the teaser on the company's website. I've handled the new gun, and though I signed an iron-clad non-disclosure agreement I can tell you this: It is as big in personality, if not in sheer size, as the oversized M&P model that I'm gripping in this poorly lit, cluttered photo.

The product will be officially announced at the 2012 NRA Show in St. Louis, but at high noon on April 12 -- the day before the show -- the NDA is lifted and we'll post a major first look at the gun on Shooting Times, which will be followed by an in-depth shooting review in the August issue of the magazine.
