It's a great gun. It is one of my two carry guns along with a Kahr PM9. I carry the S&W when I'm wearing pants with smaller pockets.

I bought mine in April...it's my carry gun. Hardest part is finding .380 right now...but it's starting to loosen up.

Sounds like you bought it without knowing anything about it. But since it's a S&W, you at least took a calculated risk. TRigger pull is heavy, as it should be on a pocket pistol, but it resets quickly and with a bit of practice, practice, practice it is just fine to shoot. The iron sights are very good as well for a small gun.

Add me to the list of BG 380 fans. Haven't shot mine much in the 2 weeks I've had it but I really like a lot of things about this gun. Feels good in the hand and the craftsmanship is top-drawer. I love nicely machined equipment and the BG 380 is definitely that.

Better yet, the sights are replaceable. I swapped mine out for a set of XS Big Dot sights.

Thank you all, actually I have done a ton of research before buying this gun. It's just I saw so many mixed reviews that it had me worried

And probably the #1 complaint is the trigger. It's a pocket gun. It's supposed to have a long heavy trigger.
