The Format Is Non-Elastic

The S&W M&P 9 Shield is the same size as several 9x19mm self defense sub-compact guns.

It's a size that's persisted for more than a century.

What's changed is the cartridge.

When that Savage hit the shelves, .380 ACP was pushing the envelope hard in a gun this small.  .32 ACP is very common fitting this footprint.

Nowadays you can get that Shield in .380, 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP with just slight variations in capacity.

Living in the future kinda rocks sometimes!
