Viridian has been producing green laser sights for pistols for years, and recently the company dove headfirst into tactical, weapon-mounted lights for pistols of all sizes. Part of this new development is Viridian’s RTL series, and now for 2015 the company has introduced its RTL-SHIELD, a tactical, triggerguard-mounted light built specifically for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield.

With its exclusive Radiance technology, the RTL-SHIELD illuminates over twice the horizontal area of conventional lights for faster discovery, smoother tracking and decisive targeting. The light itself is a powerful 110-lumen unit, and Viridian offers the RTL-SHIELD with its Enhanced Combat Readiness (ECR) system. Essentially, the ECR system, built into your tactical holster, ignites your tactical light instantly upon draw. The RTL-SHIELD comes with this ECR holster, in this case a belt slide Kydex/leather combination holster that is easy to conceal. As soon as you draw your Smith & Wesson M&P Shield, the RTL-SHIELD is activated, allowing you to identify threats in your home or other darkened structures. This is truly an essential, must-have piece of equipment for any self-defense-minded citizen who wants to protect their home and their family, especially if they already own the very popular Smith & Wesson M&P Shield.
