I recently added a S&W M&P Shield EZ 2.0 (lot of name for a .380) to the pile of small carry pistols, except this one is not very small. The new Smith is about the size of my Beretta 84 ( but not nearly as wide) so not tiny but is a real performer while throwing brass out the top. The pistol is “EZ” to do about anything: rack the slide, take down, recover from its minimal recoil for the next shot, carry in a pancake holster, etc, etc. I do not know what the longevity of the platform will be but I am not concerned with shooting lots of ammo through this new pistol. I did not buy mine for concealed carry as I have others already in this role but for plinking fun with a center fire cartridge I look forward to future outings.
