Combining popular M&P characteristics with existing Bodyguard 380 features, the new M&P Bodyguard 380 Flat Dark Earth (FDE) offers consumers a uniquely engineered, lightweight self-defense pistol. Compact, sleek and ergonomic, the M&P Bodyguard pistol benefits from new fish scale serrations on the rear of the slide for ease of use and like other M&P pistols, ships complete with two magazines.
Chambered for .380 ACP, the lightweight sub-compact pistol features a high-strength polymer frame with a black, Maximum Corrosion Resistant (MCR®) coated stainless steel slide and barrel. The new M&P Bodyguard is standard with a 2 ¾ inch barrel, which contributes to an overall length of 5 ¼ inches and an unloaded weight of only 11.85 ounces. Additional standard features include a rapid second-strike capability, thumb safety, take-down lever and stainless steel drift adjustable sights.
Nice and compact. Looks good. I needed a longer clip for my pinky for a good fit and feel. The reason that I sold it already was the ridiculous trigger swing. Tried to make myself like it but no way. To buy an aftermarket trigger to shorten it up wasn't worth it.
I chose this to replace my Glock 43. The Bodyguard is very small in both thickness and length and even compared to a small gun like the Glock 43 it's tiny. I only tested accuracy at 15ft but I could get 1 inch groupings. Trigger pull isn't great but I was used to it after about 5 rounds. It's small so it can hurt to shoot after a while. I only shot 50 rounds and that was enough to know it was reliable no issues, accurate once I got the trigger pull figured out and I am really impressed with the small size. Recoil is quite civil. Considering buying a second one just because it was so cheap.
Traded in my Kahr P380 and picked this up. What a nice shooter. No fails to feed or stove piping like the P380. So happy with the Bodyguard. Regular carry now. Ruger was before. The LCP 380 will be a once in awhile substitute. People say about heavy trigger pull. It's for defense purpose. It's built that way. Can't carry a hair trigger pistol. Let's be real people. Great pistol. 5 stars.
The trigger pull is horrendous. Longest I have ever felt on a handgun. Other than that it shot well. Good for cc if you can get over the length of the trigger pull.
I bought this solely for CCW purposes. It is super lightweight and easy to carry both on your belt or in a pocket holster. Accuracy proved to good from 15 yards and closer. After that, it spreads out and is not nearly as accurate. But then, if you're carrying this for protection, you are probably not going to be in a shooting situation over 15 yards.
