Taking the new Smith & Wesson M&P380 Shield EZ pistol for a test drive (VIDEO)

Smith & Wesson’s new .380 in the 2.0 Shield series gets its “EZ” name from its easy-load magazine, light slide pull, crisp trigger, and low perceived recoil.

To see if the 8+1 single stack compact lives up to the hype, the Mrgunsngear Channel does a pretty in-depth review of the new Smith above and, deviating from the norm, taps in both female and youth evaluators to give the gun a test.

At 6.7-inches overall with an unloaded weight of 18.5-ounces, the Shield EZ is internal hammer-fired– which is a plus for those who aren’t fans of striker guns. It also has lots of safety features including a grip safety, which is rare for U.S.-made polymer framed handguns and includes the option for a factory thumb safety as well.

But how do the test shooters like it? Watch the video.
