IMHO the S&W Bodyguard 380 is the ideal pocket pistol, it is hammer fired and provides double strike capability, it's VERY thin and has a grip that's allows good purchase for even large hands, it also has a thumb safety if you care to use it, also the laser is very easy to use up close or in low-light situations!

I really like my BG 380, I just got a desantis pocket holster and it feels and prints like a wallet.

I regularly carry one of two handguns: Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 and a Kahr PM9. I would have no problem recommending either a Smith or a Kahr.

Yes, I agree they are pricey. But it's not like you're going to be needing to buy a new one every couple years. Once it's bought, it's bought. I love my P2238.

The P238 has an external safety.
