Royal-Nonesuch-357He mentioned in a previous video that he didn’t want to do “build videos” because of potential personal liability issues.  I hear that… smart thinking.   The part layout at the start doesn’t really tell you much, because those are all obvious external parts anyway.

<– Screen grab for posterity.  Proper ear pro (from 1925) AND eye pro!  Wow… all jokes aside I’m glad he’s finally doing that.

4:24 – “Now we wait the customary 20 minutes before we remove the barrel from the gun because the round could still be very hot and burn me when it comes out”  <— LOL trollin trollin trollin.

Like he said, looks like it will be a fun gun to play around with.

Wow. What a terrible idea. I’m sure some genius will make a drop in digital version of this for the Glock soon enough.

Released at SHOT show this year, two new guns in the S&W bodyguard series, a .380 pistol and a .38 revolver.

They are kept lightweight through the use of aluminum and polymer and steel.

Very nice commercial.. really highlights the guns and the lasers well.

There is a flash of the girl’s face at 1:00 where she looks a bit too happy for someone that could have been stabbed.  Maybe she realized that she had the upper hand :P

Some thoughts:

  • The integration of the laser into the frames (although real well done in this case), is not my preference.  I’d rather see it as an option.
  • Red lasers are so last year! … Don’t they know that green is the new red? Better visibility, greater brightness, and better range with the green.
  • Ambidextrous cylinder release on revolver is a great idea
  • I don’t like the external non-ambidextrous thumb safety on the pistol.  I prefer safeties you don’t have to remember to disengage (ie. like the internal safeties on Glock pistols).
