  • Soft shooting
  • Easy to rack slide
  • Good ergonomics
  • Very little customization
  • Slide lock release doesn't feel great
Editor’s Note:

“The Smith & Wesson Shield EZ is a great gun for those that need a little help in the racking department. The slide rides smoothly on the rails, making it easy to load a round in the chamber. Ergonomics are pretty good, except for the slide release which is just okay. Overall, it’s a soft and smooth shooter — perfect for those with hand difficulties, new shooters, or older shooters.”

Sig Sauer P365

Sig Sauer P365


The Sig P365 is an impressive micro 9mm with a great track record. This gun is a popular subcompact semi-auto pistol, designed for CCW and self defense. Some of it’s key features include a 10-round capacity, which is higher than many of its competitors, compact and modular, has XRAY3 Day/Night sights providing visibility in low light conditions, and ambi controls. We’ve tested this gun time and time again. As our writer puts it, “The rest of the industry has had a couple of years to catch up but the P365 is still an impressive micro 9mm that is super popular as a CCW option.” – Travis Pike

final verdict

“If you want the softest shooting, easiest to rack handgun on the market, look no further than the Smith & Wesson Shield EZ line. This gun offers a much easier slide racking compared to regular concealed carry guns. Reliability is top-notch, along with high marks for ergonomics, accuracy, and value. The marketing wasn’t kidding when they named this the EZ line. It actually delivers in each respect, and you can tell the designers went out of their way to make sure that it did. So for us, a big thumbs up.”
