Sub Compacts Concealed Carry Handgun Reviews

At the Range: Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard 380

smith-wesson-mp-bodyguard-380In the world of concealed carry guns, Smith & Wesson does it all with snub nose revolvers, compacts, subcompacts and single stacks.

For those interested in deep concealment without sacrificing the familiar characteristics of full-sized guns, the M&P Bodyguard 380 is an excellent option. As the smallest semiauto in Smith & Wesson’s M&P lineup, the Bodyguard 380 offers full-size features in a pocket-sized package.

Jessica Nyberg and James Tarr test out the S&W M&P Bodyguard 380 at the range in this segment of Handguns & Defensive Weapons TV on the Sportsman Channel.

    I owned the Bodyguard 380 and liked the weapon, unfortunatley I had the firing pin break twice…not a viable option for self defense.

    1) We say there ARE advantages, not there IS advantages.
    2) Uber means over (in German). It doesn’t mean “very.”
    3) According to multiple reports, it’s neither uber reliable nor very reliable. Light strikes, problems with mag insertion, slide not locking back are all commonly reported problems.

    I owned a body guard .380 m&p and broke fourth day I had it. Sent it to Smith for warrantee( worste customer service ever ). It’s been done getting fixed,but their inventory is more important than me getting my summer carry back. I’ll be selling the unreliable pistol once it gets back. biggest disappointment ever bought followed up by the customer service rep with no desire to do his job or maybe just because I am just an average buyer and not a contract rep. There’s many better .380 packages out there.
