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.
Never argue with an idiot in public. People passing by won't know which one of you is the idiot.
