    While recently helping as an RSO with a LTC class, another RSO had recently purchased a SW MP Shield 380 2.0 EZ. I shot a magazine of 8 through it and liked the way it felt and handled. I know 380 has came along way as a defensive round but I’ve rarely messed with SW MP’s. I would like to know yalls thoughts on the weapon.?

    I really liked the one I had. I only sold it because I needed the money for some bills. I liked the easy to operate slide, the overall size of the gun, and how it shot. I will buy it again and this time I don’t plan on having to sale it. I had no issues with it. It ran all the ammo I put through it. I would feel comfortable using it as an edc with defensive rounds in it.

    The Walther PK380 is what I have for my carry gun (once I'm proficient enough and confident enough to carry). So, obviously I'm ok with 380.

    I like the look and feel of the 380 EZ, but haven't shot it yet. However, since a used one came into the store, I guess I'll find out soon enough.

    I've been interested in 380 for a while. But, most 380's are direct blowback. At that point, you might as well get a 9mm (since they're mostly NOT direct blowback, so just as easy to shoot).

    Wife didn't care for the grip safety, I thought it shot okay. We replaced it with a Walther PPQ which she likes much better.

    There are many schools of thought on this forum and I'm sure someone will be along to disagree with me shortly but the best gun is the one you carry... and can shoot well. .380 is a perfectly acceptable SD caliber with proper placement and if that one rings your bell go for it.

    It is easy to rack, the mag release was well placed, full mags seated easily. The sights could stand a little improvement but there's no lack of options on that front. Maybe a tad snappy watching Mrs Whistler but she tends to limp wrist a bit.

    Overall a pretty popular choice and folks seem to like them from the feedback I've seen.

    My wife likes hers. She has RA so this is the only gun she can easily rack the slide.

    I like the way it shoots.

    Yea I liked it when I shot it. I think a 380 will be good SD. Simply due to the lack of over penetration. I was impressed with it and it felt great in my hands. The big thing I don’t like about it is, I’m unable to place a RMR on it due to the round indicator.

    morning, my Sig Sauer 380 copperhead is very nice.
    the 380 with the right ammo is very lethal. do not
    shoot to wound and get sued. shoot to kill.
    no law suit.

    I got my GF one for Christmas. We both really like it. I'm not worried about it being .380acp since it's in a longer barrel. They key selling points for me besides the easiness of operation is that she liked it. She wanted a manual safety and she enjoys shooting it. She also likes my cz pcr at the range but it's too heavy and big for her to carry.

    Awesome! I’ll have to check out CZ. I like the p07 and p09.
