Smith & Wesson Updates BodyGuard 380 for 2014

Smith & Wesson has announced some changes to the BodyGuard 380 for 2014. Some of the main changes are: integration into M&P line, upgraded corrosion resistant slide, no integrated laser (good news in this case since the original units had many problems with activation buttons), and 2 included magazines. Hopefully they also made some improvements to the trigger as that was one of the drawbacks of the original version, time will tell on that one.
