article imageTornado can't 'shoot down' M&P

By Alex Allen     Jun 16, 2013 in Odd News
It's great news for Smith & Wesson fans across the world: Smith & Wesson's M&P pistol has survived the ultimate torture test – an EF-4 tornado.
Popular gun manufacturer Smith & Wesson is known for its durable products. Their M&P handgun has been taken through mud, water, and nearly everything else imaginable to man in order to test its strength and durability and it has always come out on top. But it wasn't until recently that it went where no other gun has ever gone before; right through the eye of an EF-4 twister.
Everyone is painfully familiar with the devastating tornado that ripped through the state of Oklahoma this May, leaving countless people dead or homeless.
Survivor Pat Brand was no different in this sense. He lost his house and much of his property. Surprisingly, however, his .40cal Smith & Wesson M&P pistol, fully equipped with a Crimson Trace laser, showed up just 600 yards from where his house once stood.
What was even more surprising, however, was the fact that after Brand took the firearm to a gunsmith, it was analyzed and declared fully functional. The gun as well as the laser had both survived the storm.
Smith & Wesson's M&P models are targeted at law enforcement but are also available to the public. They are manufactured various cartridges including .22lr, 9mm, .45ACP, .40S&W, and .357SIG.
