First Look: Smith & Wesson M&P Bodyguard Handguns with Crimson Trace Lasers

smith_wesson_Bodyguard_crimson_trace_CT_00014Smith & Wesson has teamed up with Crimson Trace to enhance the M&P Bodyguard line of handguns with integrated laser sighting systems.

Built directly into the frames of M&P Bodyguard 380 pistols and M&P Bodyguard 38 revolvers, Crimson Trace designed the laser units to preserve the general shape and weight of S&W's popular carry guns.

Reintroduced at the 2014 SHOT Show, the Bodyguard 380 has proven itself among consumers who prefer to carry a gun smaller than the 9x19mm or .40 S&W Shield.


Crimson Trace tailored their integrated laser unit into the frame of the M&P 380 with minimal size increases. Located just in front of the trigger guard, the unit can be intuitively activated by left- or right-handed shooters. When the laser is not in use, the pistol is fitted with stainless steel dovetail sights.


The M&P Bodyguard 380 pistol is available immediately for an MSRP of $419.

Smith & Wesson's five-shot Bodyguard 38 Revolver offers a simple hammerless design in a small-frame package. Now fitted with Crimson Trace's red laser module on the right side of the frame, this .38 S&W Special +P revolver is a great wheel gun option for fast target acquisition.

The M&P Bodyguard 38 Revolver is available immediately for an MSRP of $509.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
