Maybe you just suck at shooting little guns then, lots of good shooters can hit targets at 25 yards with an LCP, grow up man, you couldn't master a difficult to shoot gun, it wasn't for you, etc... The gun is fine LCP's are fine, sure get a SIG P238 and it's easier to get hits with but, these small cheap (I paid like $225 for mine) guns are not gonna tear a ragged group at 10 or 15 yards... You trashing the gun because it's not accurate or whatever is like saying that a pickup truck isn't good at road racing.. No shit, that's not what it's made for....
I could shoot my BG380 pretty well, actually. The trigger was a POS, but I traded it off because it was a .380.

I have a Sig P238 that I rarely carry, because its a .380. I carry it when bicycle riding.

My little gun is a Kahr CM9. I carry it in a Sneaky Pete when motorcycle riding. I've shot it in IDPA BUG several times, and can shoot it well out to 25 yards.

I don't usually carry little guns because, keeping up with "current events," there's more opportunity to be dealing with more than one or two BG's these days, compared to the old "three shots at less than three feet, in three seconds" that some used to spout off about (usually as their justification for not carrying a reload).

I prefer to carry decent sized pistols in a decent caliber with at least a couple of reloads, usually more.

I'm in the same boat, the bodyguard is my only tiny gun. I don't think I've ever left home wit just the bodyguard on me. My edc has been a fullsuze 9mm m&p because like you said the threat today may require lots of rounds, I also carry at least one reload sometimes too.

I bought an M&P BG with red laser two weeks ago and have fired about 75 rounds through it, from 5, 10, and 15 yards.

I find it to be surprisingly accurate, using both the iron sights, point shoulder, and with the red laser.

Living in Florida, I wear shorts about 99% of the time, so concealment is a challenge. I use a pocket holster and this is working out great for me.

QUESTION: It came with two mags that are defective - I am unable to feed the mags because they are too narrow, i.e. poor quality control. This is using two brands of JHP and two brands of FMJ rounds.

S&W sent me two replacements and they too are defective. I am waiting for another two to arrive this week.

I bought one through Amazon and another at a different gun store and they both work fine.

Has anyone else encountered this? Thanks.

Here is my feeling instead of bashing guns or makers , what about saying I prefer this or that and here is why . As a fairly new firearms owner I don't understand some of the negative comments . If someone likes a gun and are happy enough said . I go the range to shoot so I know how to handle my gun s . I have all S&W products for now . Where does gun critique end and snobery begin ?

I prefer to tell the truth about products. Others must like to take a page out of the Lib playbook, and tell them something to make them feel good.

Exactly, Opinions on firearms are often subjective. There is no universal best firearm for everyone.

If it works well for you and does not work well for me then you should own it, in the inverse, if it works great for me and you can't hit anything with it there is no reason for me to change firearms.

But then I have stated the obvious. So many to chose from, find one that works well for you, not what works well for me.
