Several years ago Smith & Wesson started building products specifically designed for law enforcement, security and public service officers. Smith & Wesson Products are superbly built and designed to take on the constant use and abuse demanded by 8-hour days on the streets. Today, these products are now available to any private citizen.
Smith & Wesson was founded in 1852 by partners Horace Smith and Daniel B. Wesson. The company was originally designed to produce an extensive variety of caliber handguns, which it most-well known for. Its corporate headquarters are in Springfield, Massachusetts.
