I don’t normally take actual backup guns to the backup gun match; it’s usually some oddball old pistol. But today, I decided to bring out the new S&W Shield Plus in .30 Super Carry. It’s actually exactly the sort of gun that the match is designed for. I chose to minimize the size of the gun by using the 13-round flush magazine instead of the extended 16-rounder.
I took the generous magazine capacity of the .30SC to heart and treated the little Shield Plus more like a service handgun than a backup carry piece, liberally dumping rounds at every target.Combined with the compact Sentinel red dot optic, this was a great combination – I nearly won the whole match!
