Smith and Wesson M&P Bodyguard

The Smith and Wesson M&P Bodyguard is a sub-compact pistol chambered in the .380 ACP.  It combines the popular M&P characteristics with the existing Bodyguard series pistol. It is lightweight and compact, which makes it easy to carry and shoot. This is a great  self-defense or off-duty pistol. It comes standard with a thumb safety, take-down lever, and two magazines.

The grip is constructed of polymer with finger grooves. It comes with two magazines. A flat magazine and one with an extended finger extension. The magazine with the finger extension is much-needed with this pistol. The extension allows a place for your pinky to wrap around. This is appreciated if you have large hands.
