Smith & Wesson M&P 40

Like many other gun manufacturers in the modern world, Smith & Wesson have specifically designed their new gun for law enforcement.

The ergonomics have been revitalised to allow for a more comfortable grip, and the trigger has been updated - the new mechanism is so safe that even if the trigger is dropped, the gun will not fire.

The .40 S&W cartridge is perfect for this gun, although other options are available.

Since 9/11, the threat from terrorists has grown around the world, and more firepower is required to prepare for the possibilities of...
