S&W Shipping Bodyguard Pistol and Revolver

Ok, I will admit that I am really using S&W’s announcement that they are shipping their new Bodyguard line of handguns as an excuse to repost the Bodyguard promo video which I love watching.

Read my coverage of the Bodyguard line here.

    lazers are kewl

  • I think they’ve been shipping for a while: one of my local gun stores has had one .380 and one .38 (had 2, I think one sold) listed on their website for about 2 weeks.

    An experienced guys opinion on a board was that for the 380 the laser actuation was so stiff as to be useless under speed and stress. Just something to be aware of.

    My father bought the auto version a few weeks ago and his laser buttons worked very well.

    I bought one yesterday and mine are very stiff, especially on the left side. I really like the set-up and I hope this is just something that needs to be broken in. Ive been hitting the switches while watching TV to loosen them up a bit.

    Other than that I have no complaints, its almost the exact size of my other favorite, the Sig P238.

    Hopefully this pistol will catch on and a good set of night-sights will become available.

    I love that more .380’s are being made. Its the perfect carry weapon for Houston in the summer.
