They must've made two. I've had mine for a year and three months, practiced with it regularly, cleaned it every time, and have had no trouble with it.

Was it a newer model without the laser?

Nope. The old one with the laser. Not the MP.

Why do i trust my pt92 ? B/c it fell off the back on the car and had a loaded dump truck run it over twice and still runs like new , wood took some damage but oh well .

Hmmm. When/if I get a chance to work on one, I will take a closer look at it. Until then, not a fan...

I have the MP Bodyguard 380, no laser. I really like it and have not had any problems. The trigger takes some getting used to but overall the gun is of high quality in my opinion. The day I purchased it I went to buy a Ruger LCP and I just liked the feel and quality of the MP as compared to the LCP.

A friend of mine has the laser version and I do not like it as well. Not a fan of the laser model. I carry mine every day and trust it completely. I would recommend getting the MP version without the laser.

I usually carry my Sig 238 or 938 that are totally reliable, however the little Bodyguard (no laser) rides in my pick up and is shot on a regular basis..neat little pistol that has fired at least 200 rounds without any failure. Not a target gun but neat to pass around to the guys to see who can hit the soda can and who gets ribbed for missing. Many people post headings for their threads without investigating the topic fully, I can understand frustration but have trouble with blanket and crude condemnation. Just my opinion.

Default Smith and wesson bodyguard 380 piece of crap

I have not shot my bodyguard very much except to qualify with it and several times at the range over the last two years. but is a pleasure to carry due to its size. I use it as a BUG at work off duty carry.

if it displays issues I'll sell it and get another s&w 642 airweight or Glock 42. You probably got a lemon, but there is no since in carrying a gun you don't have faith in.

I will say that the thing is a pita to reassemble after cleaning. Maybe it's because I don't have the hang of it or something. But that little lever/pin always kicks my butt when I'm trying to get it to sit in right. Makes me want to sale and swap for something else.

Like most manufacturers, Smith & Wesson ain't what it used to be. In years past, the name "Smith & Wesson" automatically meant quality.

Now, S & W stands for Sometimes Works.
