    Smith & Wesson has identified a condition where the trigger bar pin could damage the lower trigger in certain M&P Shields in a way that may affect the functionality of the drop safety feature of the firearm, potentially allowing the pistol to discharge if it is dropped.

    Any unintended discharge of a firearm has the potential to cause injury, and we ask that you STOP USING YOUR PISTOL IMMEDIATELY UNTIL IT HAS BEEN INSPECTED AND, IF THE CONDITION IS FOUND, REPAIRED.

    This Safety Alert applies to all M&P Shield pistols manufactured before August 19, 2013. We believe this condition is largely limited to recently manufactured M&P Shield pistols. However, out of an abundance of caution, we are asking all consumers of all M&P Shields manufactured before August 19, 2013 to immediately inspect their pistols for this condition

    There's another thread about this, but IMO that's ok given the popularity of the Shield and the importance of this issue.

    That in mind, bump.

    Aw geez, I thought you guys were only worried about me. Such a disappointment, and so late in life to find out. Oh well!

    Actually I am wondering if any of us have one that has to go back, and how well S&W dhandles the repair and return. In that respect I was briefly disappionted that mine is okay, but I got over it.

    They couldn't just say, if the lame glock-like safety is broken, its okay cause it has a real safety on it too.

    What they meant to say, "we tried to mock the Glock, but only Glock achieves perfection."
