Our Assessment: The S&W Model SW380 was their entry into the pocket pistol concealed carry market. All the edges have been softened and the sights are small and designed not to snag if the gun is drawn from a pocket. It is small, lightweight, flat and with the current offerings for personal defense ammunition in .380 Auto this is a viable concealed carry gun.
CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This pistol is not on the California “roster of certified for sale handguns”, and can only be transferred to a California resident as a private party transaction (PPT) at our shop in Simi Valley. This does not apply to out of state buyers.
