Built for personal and home protection, the innovative M&P380 Shield EZ pistol is the latest addition to the M&P M2.0 family and provides an easy-to-use protection option for both first-time shooters and experienced handgunners alike.
Bought this gun for my wife as a CCW because the slide was so easy for her 52, 105#. Pretty easy to load, very little kick for being so light. Highly recommend to any woman as a purse weapon with its slim profile.
It's much easier to conceal than my Ruger 9mm as well, so it would likely work as a IWB carry but I am personally not a fan of the grip safety. Also, the gun has a tendancy to kick a round out of the breach unfired. Typically either the first or the last round of the clip.
This is my fourth handgun. Finally I have one that works for me. Easy to work the slide, easy to load the magazine and easy to shoot well. The S&W .380 EZ I bought does not have the thumb safety, my choice, but does have the grip safety which works well with proper grip. Love the grip size and the trigger has a short take up to a crisp break.
In my opinion this is perhaps the worst new handgun I have ever encountered. It does not feel like a gun it feels like a plastic toy. Maybe that was the point. The trigger itself is made of plastic with a sharp plastic ridge in the middle where the injection mold halves met`;` a discernibly spongy feel precedes the wall with between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch of creep before the trigger breaks.
The plastic grip safety adds to the confusion and can prevent a quick shot. The grip itself feels awkward`;` too thin for my admittedly small hands. Perhaps they had children under 10 when they designed this grip. At least a few times the trigger emitted a plasticy snap at the beginning of its pull. The color of red rust appeared on a white cloth when rubbed hard against the rails of the slide. This seems to be a hallmark of every gun I buy from SOSS. Perhaps their storage facility is not temperature or humidity controlled. Good luck.
Great weapon. Accurate out of the box. EZ to clean.
I had the privilege of purchasing one of these beautiful handguns soon as they were released. I have put a thousand rounds through it; not one jam. Beautiful, beautiful firearm. There is no thumb safety but the grip safety was a beautiful invention.
