Running the promotion hardware from Smith & Wesson with @dangle__da
The S&W M&P line is a close competitor to our preferred Glock pistols, so it was nice to see how the other half lives.
The M&P 9 & 2.0 variant are mechanically identical, the 2.0 featuring a factory 'stipple' job on the grip and some slight muzzle-end slide serrations. Both pistols cycled flawlessly, held reasonable groups, and were otherwise boring to shoot. They're your garden-variety duty-grade 9mm.
The M&P Shield is the current king of single-stack carry pistols. Our test model was chambered in .45 ACP, and is roughly equivalent in size to a Glock 19. Like it's larger-framed brethren, this thing cycled without incident and printed effective groups with little recoil, due mainly to the size of the weapon. It'd be a solid carry choice for someone who's into big-bore pistols but wants a slim, striker-fired model.
The BG 380 is a tiny pocket gun, with a heavy, double-action only trigger and an external manual safety and integrated laser aiming device (for those that think they need that). Our test model's laser was non-functional. With practice, you can obtain accurate hits from any realistic combat distance, but this thing isn't built to be a serious shooting pistol. It's a point-blank defense gun at best, as speed-cycling it's heavy trigger without a large amount of practice will result in a large group. My only saving grace was nearly a decade spent behind an M9. If you have to have a .380, there are better options in my personal opinion. It is small and light, however.
