Smith & Wesson® M&P Bodyguard® 380 Semi-Auto Pistol
Very Pleased Now
I have always carried a 1911 as my daily carry off duty rig. I have spent years in Law Enforcement and I have spent a lot at the range. I am now retired and I have been looking for a small auto and I went with the S&W Bodyguard. Knowing That I was not a Great Fan of the trigger pull, but I found a way around it and I am very Thankful that I went with the Bodyguard and I replaced the trigger with a Great Kit. Helped Me With The Long Traveling Pull. I have now since got the wife one and I still carry my S&W 1911 and I have my Bodyguard with me in my carry bag.

My favorite pistol!
I just picked this little pistol up with the intentions to use as my EDC. I finally had a chance to take it to the range this afternoon to fire it for the first time and I'm really impressed. As I do with any brand new firearm I field stripped my BG380 acording to the manual to clean/inspect/oil and after watching some reviews on you tube it became apparent that some people had dificulty in putting the take down pin back in. I had no problems in disasembly or reassembly & the instructions in the manual were spot on. In addition to some paperwork, owners manual, included with the pistol are 2 magazines, a cable lock, trigger lock and a nice zipped nylon case to store your pistol.
Ok, lets talk about the BG380
For starters I have medium sized hands and the size & fit is just about right for me. It is practally identical in appearance, design & features as the M&P shield 9mm (which I also own) just pint sized.. I set the target out to 5 yards & put 100 rounds of FMJ ball thru it & the pistol functioned perfectly. Recoil was very tame & the trigger pull is very smooth, in fact I like the long trigger pull. Once you get used to it I think you'll like it also. Since it is a small pistol I went ahead & ordered Talon grips for it.

Body Guard 9lb trigger pull
I love the size of this gun and how well it fits in my hand and pockets. But the trigger pull is 9lbs. and very long. It was really a pain to shoot for a while at the gun range. My wife loves the size and fits in her pocket book. But at the range she hated it. She had to adjust her hand during the shot do to the long trigger pull of 9lbs.

Great carry conceal gun!
This is my second Smith and Wesson purchase. The first one was for basic home protection. (full sized 40 caliber) I purchased this gun (Body Gaurd) specifically for carry and conceal. I use a pocket hoster...the gun is so small and light that I dont feel it on me. The gun was quite accurate at twenty feet but at twenty five feet is wasnt accurate at all. Keep in mind that the gun was made for "up close self protection," The firing of the gun was quite manageable but the trigger pull is quite long. My next purchase will be the Smith and Wesson 40 Shield compact.
