M&P Bodyguard Maybe In My Future

I'm seriously looking at the M&P Bodyguard for a hot summer carry here in South Carolina. I know I can CC any of my Shields or even my M&P M2.0 but it's a good excuse to pick up another M&P. Anything I should know about the Bodyguard?

I love my Bodyguard 380. It is very easy to conceal. The trigger pull is a little longer but it gives you time to think about what you are going to do. Mine shoots everything that is run through it..... Welcome to the forum.

Fine little pistol, one rides in my pocket M-F as a backup to my shield or fullsize M&P... I try to not have it as my primary though I.E. when its on me it's not the only gun on me or, I keep a more substantial gun close at hand be it in my truck or in the fast access safe in the other room.. I'm not even really that comfortable with only the shield and two spare mags so I guess I carry a bit heavy preferring the 4.25 M&P and two spare mags plus one in the center console, I guess all the crazy terrorists running around have me wanting more fire power....

What was wrong with it? Didn't feed? What kind of ammo did you use? Did you contact S&W about the issue? Sounds like you're just trying to trash the gun with nothing to back it up, are you just not up to shooting such a small gun because you're an inexperienced shooter? How many classes have you taken on pistol shooting?..... Mine goes bang every time...

Mine went bang every time also. That's where it ends. I don't carry ANY firearm that has no sights, one of the worst triggers I've ever felt, and isn't accurate past 10 ft. I tried to like it, believe me. I always give a firearm a chance, to find any redeemable qualities, but I never found any. Glad you like yours. I'd rather carry a pocket full of rocks. I owned one with plenty of use time "to back it up" I grew up with a father as a gunsmith. I have been shooting for over 50 yrs. I don't need to prove anything to anyone sonny

Thanks for some good info. Like the comments, it's easy to conceal, shoots everything I run through it and goes bang every time.
