Plan B on the Range
Thoughts from Modern Self Protection
Testing & Evaluation
The what and why behind T&E.
In developing The Plan B for the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield getting feedback on that product has been imperative. As the product developer, my ideas, thoughts and opinions are important, but I’m not creating the product for me. Instead, the Plan B is for the people that will use it every day when they carry their Shield concealed.
Since the Plan B is a self-defense related product testing and evaluation is even more important. I have worked hard to get feed back not only from customers who are early adopters of the Plan B Prototypes, but also a Testing and Evaluation Crew made up of industry experts.
Ben Branam of Modern Self Protection is one of those industry experts I called on. As a Marine, former civilian contractor, armed professional, and professional defensive firearms instructor, Ben has some insight on how a defensive shooting accessory needs to perform.
Since Ben owns a S&W Shield in 9mm he was a perfect candidate to take a look at the Plan B. I fired a couple out to him and within 24 hours he had put some thoughts onto video.
Modern Self Protection & The Plan B
One of the great things about testing and evaluation is that you get feedback about aspects of the product that you didn’t anticipate.
When I sent the Plan B to Ben for T&E I expected to get feedback that the Plan B performed as advertised. We worked hard on the design and are successful in our endeavor of designing the ONLY accessory that addresses the p[roblems posed by the factory magazine parts with the Shield.
What was a surprise was the information that Ben shared about how the Plan B helped to make the Shield a gun that fit his hand better.
Check out Ben’s video to learn more about his thoughts about the Shield Plan B and how it improved his Shield into a gun that he would actually carry!
