I got me another M & P

I got the itch after reading something on here about the new M & P 380 EZ. I thought, how am I going to get another one to add to my collection...took me a few days to work it out. I went looking at my local gunstores, found one! I worked up a trade plus a few extra dollars. I love the pull on the new one, easy as the name implies. I cleaned it, and loaded a magazine with my Snap Caps, ran it through a few checks, now awaiting time to go to the range. Can't wait to see how it compares to my Shield 9 MM.

I have 4 M&P's -- the 5" Pro 9, a shield 9, a Shield 45 and a Bodyguard. The EZ is hammer fired instead of striker which makes it a little different than the first 3, which I love. I have heard good things about it, but I'm moving away from 380. My current 380 is the M&P Bodyguard, which is not so great and is in the process of being replaced by my Micro 9. The Bodyguard will be up for adoption.

I also like the M+Ps. I have four. And would be willing to try the easy next for when I get old and feeble.

I love my Little Bodyguard 380, my carry gun. Sometimes I do not even know it is there. It is a little different than the others, trigger pull etc. I love it because I can keep it under my tee shirt in the summer months. Going to switch to the EZ for winter time when I can wear it out with a shirt over it.

It is made for old people, easy slide, easy break down, even the magazines are easier to load than my Shield 9 MM. Going to try it at the range this week....I will shoot all of them since I am there.

I have two M&P Shields then bought the 380EZ for my wife. After shooting my 9mm & 45 the EZ seems like shooting a 22 Cal; no kick at all. Enjoy.

My wife has a Kimber Micro Carry 380 which I love to shoot, changed the spring out a few months ago. I am hoping that she will not like my 380EZ and want to trade since it is a little bigger than her Kimber.
