This gun is OK. I purchased it because of arthritic hands. Really easy to use. I am not real accurate with it, although that could be me and not the gun.

Purchased for my wife. We are both in our 60's. She originally had a compact 9MM but was unable to rack the slide or load a single round in any of her magazines due to the high-pressure springs. When the pandemic hit, we gave her compact 9MM to our youngest daughter. She is in her late 20"s and although petite, she can rack the slide and load the magazines on the compact 9MM without any problems. While doing research on a replacement weapon for my wife, I came across the S&W M&P Shield 380EZ. All of the reviews were very positive, so I purchased one from Budsgunshop.com. It was love at first sight for my wife. The weapon is light, fits her small hands, my wife can load the magazines by herself, and most important, racking the slide is like racking a .22LR slide. The 380EZ came with two eight (8) round magazines. At my wife's request, I purchased four (4) more, so she now has six (6) magazines. Now when we go to the range, my wife can load her mags and shoot on her own, leaving me to do my own shooting without having to worry about her. As the 380EZ is a personal defense weapon for my wife when I am not home, I opted for the 380EZ without thumb safety. One less thing for her to remember or figure out why her weapon won't fire. Most of my firearms do not have thumb safeties, so that is what she has been shooting and grown accustomed to. I have mounted a Surefire flashlight on the 380EZ which looks huge on such a small weapon, but it is functional and a must have on a personal defense weapon for the home. Lastly, there have been a few times when my wife was unable to pull the trigger on her 380EZ. I suspected that this was due to my wife shifting her grip on the weapon and not completely depressing the safety on the back of the grip. To confirm my suspicion, I temporarily put a rubber pistol grip sleeve on her 380EZ the next time we were out at the range. This rubber sleeve compressed the pistol grip safety regardless of my wife's grip on the weapon. Sure enough, she fired 200+ rounds without any issues. The rubber pistol grip was only temporary, to confirm my suspicion about her grip and the grip safety. I would never encourage or recommend anyone defeat a safety feature incorporated on their firearm. My wife is now aware she shifts her grip, and that on her 380EZ, it may prevent the weapon from firing. She has been practicing keeping her grip consistent and now seldom has any issues. Practice, practice, practice... I cannot say enough about the S&W M&P Shield 380EZ. I highly recommend to anyone with reduced upper body strength, arthritis of the hands, wrists, or fingers, or anyone with carpel tunnel issues. It is a great all-around weapon, easy to load, rack, and fire. As with any .380 auto, do your research on the positives and negatives of available .380 auto personal defense ammo. While hollow points are typically the way to go for most calibers, many .380 hollow points may not give the desired penetration, thus look to see what else is available...

The purchase and delivery process went well. As for the gun itself, I don't think S&W did their best design work on this gun. I carry a S&W M&P Shield, and I am pleased with that line. The EZ model does have an easy slide as advertised, but the grip safety pivots at the bottom rather than the top (as a 1911 platform gun does). The result--especially if the gun has a thumb safety operated by the shooting hand--is that it is more difficult to consistently depress the lever far enough to disengage the safety. The newer Performance Center models have a deeper safety lever, which compensates for the problem. They also removed the thumb safety, I believe, because reaching for the thumb safety with the shooting hand tends to pull the hand away from the grip safety. If the grip safety issue is not a problem, the gun works well.

I bought this gun for my wife. Oh, who am I kidding.....I BOUGHT THIS GUN FOR MYSELF!!! Seriously, anyone can enjoy shooting the M&P Shield 380 EZ. I also think its a viable self defense option. I'm seriously considering making it my EDC. The recoil is very light and its accurate out of the box. Its a real joy to shoot! Also, the service from Buds was great as always!

Bought it for my daughter to carry concealed. Works very well and is easy to operate, disassemble and clean.

I bought the S&M 380 EZ and it failed after firing 15 rounds, the range instructor came. Over to see ant had happened and advised me that is was “broken”, I’m not an expert but it clearly no longer functions. I have 5 other S&Ms and have not had any issues. I guess true satisfaction will be figuring out how to get this gun replaced.

Seems really great. The polymer feels solid. The slide is super easy to operate. Very positive trigger reset. Iron sights are easy to see and the front blade feels the notch nicely. The trigger is very nice and has a clean break. Magazine release is very easy to operate with out changing grip. The slide release is also easy to operate.
Fits very nicely into Kahr P45 holster.
