Smith and Wesson M&P9 JG: Special Edition “Julie Goloski Champion Series” Pistol

Smith & Wesson M&P9 JG

Smith and Wesson introduced the M&P9 JG “Julie Goloski Champion Series” 9mm pistol. This new pistol was designed in collaboration with champion shooter Julie Goloski (now Julie Golob.)

The M&P9 JG features several design changes from the normal 9mm M&P. The front sight is a fiber optic sight for enhanced visibility. The rear sight has been replaced with the Warren Tactical rear sight.

The M&P9 JG comes with the normal three interchangeable palm-swell grips plus two new grips in bright pink. The new grips are one each of the small and medium sizes. The slide features an engraved breast cancer awareness ribbon. Smith and Wesson will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the M&P9 JG to a breast cancer awareness charity.

If you are interested in the M&P9, but not enamored with the pink grips, check out this article on more Pro Series 9mm pistols from Smith & Wesson.  I personally own an M&P 9 pistol (full size) and have gotten a lot of good service from it.  It runs very reliably, is easy shooting and is extremely accurate.  Although I prefer light to medium weight (115 gr – 124 gr) hollow points for self-defense, this gun’s accuracy is phenomenal with the 147 grain bullets.

Update

The M&P9 JG pistol has been discontinued.  The exact date the gun was pulled from production is not known. As of the time of this writing, there are no other S&W pistols supporting breast cancer research. It is not known if the company plans on introducing a new cancer awareness pistol.

Although the model number (M&P9 JG) would not need to change, Julie Goloski is now Julie Golob due to her recent nuptials. It is unlikely that this happy event is the reason behind the discontinued pistol. Chances are it is a simple issue of economics. As long as the product is profitable, the company is going to sell it.

I am a breast cancer survivor and I just bought one today. I too hope the funds donated will help find a cure so my daughter and niece will never have to experience breast cancer. I am sorry but in my universe like the gun manufacture I find nothing wrong with this and encourage others to purchase. Your right only in America can we enjoy such freedoms and damn proud of it. Best wishes.
