    Default New S&W Bodyguard

    Saw the new S&W Bodyguard 38 at my buddies shop today - just got them in, no 380's yet. I'm not overly impressed. It's a nice lightweight revolver - the laser looks a little strange sitting up high, like an afterthought, and terrible on switch - it's a tiny little button on the top that can't be turned on very quick. I think I'd pay the extra $ 100 if I wanted a lightweight 38 with laser and go with the lcr.
    I'm getting the Bodyguard 380 when it comes in, hopefully my guy will have it soon - keeps on being delayed.

    Thanks for the review. I was looking into the .380 but i'm unsure about the laser. I want it to be activated as I grip the pistol like the crimson trace.

    I have a 638 "Bodyguard with crimson trace grips, it is incredibly nice. What do you mean about the switch and laser??

    There is a new S&W "Bodyguard" model just out, with a laser built in.

    Ah ha, I googled it and that 38 is butt ugly. Don't know how it works but the old school 638 is excellent.

    The new one looks HORRIBLE IMO but the old school "bodyguard" j frames are where it's at!
