I pocket carry one everyday. I like it very much, I did have to send it back to S&W. The battery door screw backed out and jammed the slide. If I knew about the screw issue in advance I would have checked when I cleaned it. I shot over a 1000 rounds thru it and it is very accurate.

I had one and liked it. I sold it only because I enjoyed shooting other guns at the range better, and I just wasn't using it much. But it was a good, accurate and reliable gun.

I absolutely hated the damn thing. Absolute worst trigger I have even had the displeasure of pulling. Aside from that and the inadequate caliber (IMO ) it is a great gun. I waited for months for the trigger kit to come out and they sold out before I could get one. I sold it and got a shield 40. It's a little bit bigger but the caliber and trigger more than make up for it. I will still be doing an apex kit and sight swap on it though.

better judged by twelve than carried by six.

Carried the bg since fist came out. Only issue is trigger pull and laser. First it was to hard to get laser on so s&w sent me new buttons. Now it's to sensitive comes on when I have it in my pocket. Batteries stay dead.

It is my #2 carry gun. I carry it if I'm wearing pants with small pockets or print too much with my Kahr. Good gun. I've never had a problem with it.

Guys. I believe the OP is asking about the about the new Bodyguard in the M&P line. Its a little different than the old Bodyguard.

I believe.
