Guys I think I'm pretty much set on getting the S&W Bodygaurd .380. My reasons are as follows: small size, manageable recoil, lifetime gaurantee, laser (only a small +), DAO w/hammer design (second strike and more importantly safer carry should i choose to not use safety except for pocket carry), price, lock back on last round, 2-finger groove for decent grip, sights, witness window (not necessary but neat nonetheless). All of your insight has been much appreciated and has gone into my consideration. However, unless i can be strongly persuaded otherwise, I'm getting the BG380. Feel free to continue the debate/info still!
