My pf9 was a nightmare in the beginning. Went back to the factory 3 times. I've ran hundreds of rounds through it since then and never had a problem though. Lots of other people with that experience. Problems from the factory at first, but then "reliable" after that. And their customer service is GREAT and their factory turned my pistol around FAST when it had its issues. So no problems there.

The LC9 on the other hand works like a CHAMP. Never even had a stovepipe yet. But you pay about $200 more for it.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

You mentioned the Bodyguard.....
Have you considered the Bodyguard .380? It does have the built in laser.

I wouldn't carry in a caliber that doesn't offer a single round capable of passing the FBI penetration standards. Not unless there were no other options at all. Laser won't help you if the bullet doesn't make it deep enough to mess up anything vital.

Not as big or as easy of a target as it seems....

Ordinarily, this would be a S&W slam dunk, but I owned a BG 38 and it was a POS. Timing went at less than 200 rds. Sent it back to S&W, trouble returned after 20 rds. Mine was definitely NOT a gun I could depend on, couldn't get rid of it fast enough. Others might've had better luck with theirs, but I couldn't recommend a BG 38.
