How does it shoot? Very well, thank you. The groups in the photos were shot at 5 yards, since this is a close range sort of gun. I've had no malfunctions or feed problems with any of the three I have tested, although I have not fired more than about 50 rounds total to date. This seems like a gun you can trust your life to, if you trust the caliber. I have heard that some users have reported that the takedown lever might fall out of the gun during shooting. This is, of course, a very bad thing, but I have not experienced it myself, so I can't verify it. If that is a problem, I'm sure Smith & Wesson will find a fix for it. All in all, the Bodyguard 380 is certainly worth serious consideration, for those who are looking for this type of pistol. I think it will live up to its Bodyguard heritage.
