Default Picked this up today

Well after much research and gratuitous fondling of hardware, I settled on the S&W Bodyguard 380 for my next addition to the collection. This will be my daily carry piece. I kept debating about a sub-compact 9, but I knew I needed a firearm that was going to be just as natural to carry as my pocket knife. The 9's just weren't quite making it. But that means I still have to add a 9 in the future.

Just picked it up after work. I'll try to get to the range this weekend.

Very nice............Gander Mountain has them on sale, in store only, for $150 off, best price that I have seen since they came out. I'd like to have one but I just ordered the Ruger LC9 last week and my wife is still upset over that.

Winchester white box most likely for the range. I'll try Hornady CD first for carry.

Interested also. One of the few small guns we can have in Ma. Plus it is a local company!

Congratulations Scott.
