[ I picked up a little Ruger 380, just to get used carrying comfortable and routinely!! That little bug, is great for concealment and no worry carry!! I realize the protection is marginal but to me, consistent carry is more important at first!! If I feel the need to move up in caliber and size I will! But for newbies like myself The LCP 380 is a great starter to carry.

[ and you can always carry a bigger gun in your vehicle if your ever in a situation that you feel you need to carry a bigger gun!!

I have to agree. But it's just not those who carry who develop that kind of attitude. When I first started to become interested in owning guns I noticed that just about every guy who worked in the local gun shops had the same attitude. Maybe it's the fact that they carried or just being surrounded by objects that not only were a significant part of our history, but help make our country as great as it is.

How much it will print is determined by only two things.....the size and shape of you and the gun.

I carry the Bodyguard 380 on my hip, or pocket. I used to carry a UHF radio for my last job which actually weighed more than this gun. I barely notice the gun. I tend to carry everywhere, at home or in the car. I think that it's important to make it part of my everyday activities so it's second nature to me. Having a CCW and only carrying "sometimes" is a good way to become complacent.

Oh, too right,mate. I am a large guy, and I carry a full-size

pistol. As robertusa123 mentioned, they make it look

real simple to carry full-size on TV. Real life is different.

I have a CC size 22LR, but I just throw it into my pocket

around the house.

No sir-No way
Holster is #1 - Type of holster & where holster is located is 90% of the concealment battle- Dress around that----
