Smith and Wesson M&P Ships to Three Additional State Law Enforcement Agencies

Smith and Wesson announced that they are shipping 1155 M&P duty pistols to three state law enforcement agencies.  All three agencies were not issuing Smith and Wesson guns prior to this, but now all three issue the M&P as the primary duty gun.

Texas Department of Criminal Justice Services – 555 M&P in .357 Sig
Washington Department of Corrections – 500 M&P in 9mm
Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigations – 100 M&P in .45 ACP

As reported on this site and on, the M&P has been selling well in the law enforcement market.  While the Glock is still king, S&W is definitely fighting for police agencies, trying to regain the dominance it once had.
