    I bought my .380 Bodyguard about 6 years ago right after I got my CCW in Missouri. I wanted a pocket gun and it fit the bill. I was never happy with the laser sight it came with...Insight I believe was the MFG. Hard to turn on and off and never seemed bright enough. Well finally it quit working. I assumed it was the batteries so I opened up the sight and it fell apart in my hands.
    I then wrote a letter to S&W (snail mail) and told them what happened and my disappointment that this laser was used in an otherwise fine gun. I do like the Bodyguard. To my surprise, within a week a got a call from S&W. They wanted me to send back my laser for a replacement. A week later I got a Crimson Trace replacement sent to me N/C.
    To me, that is excellent customer service. The righted the wrong they made when they put that piece of crap in one of their products.

    no company is immune from making mistakes. it's how they handle those mistakes in regards to their customers as to how good or great company is.

    looks like S&W stepped up and did the right thing. six years later, they could have just blown you off, but nope, they didn't. well done for S&W!

    good products are important, but a warranty and great customer service are just as important, if not more important.
