Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Yeah, you would carry a pink gun. Actually, if it was a Ruger, I would too. =P

I would carry any gun that was gifted. Except a Hi-Point. I almost bought a P22 that had a pink slide. The profits benefitted Susan G. Komen and I am a big supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness. Also, no one is gonna say sh*t when you pull a pink gun. LOL

Wow, I really like that Bodyguard 38. It's a good looking pistol. I've been wanting a 38 just because - maybe for a little backup gun. I like the smaller grip, that's what drew me to my SR9.

I just informed hubby that it's on my wish list!

I checked out both at the S&W booth at the shot show. They both are extremely light and would be very comfortable to carry. The ambidextrous cylinder release on the revolver is high on the tang where the hammer would be located if it had an external hammer. To release the cylinder you push up with your thumb, very easy to do but would take a complete relearning for muscle memory to not be a hazard in an emergency. The 380 is a little small to my hand so did not spend much time looking at it, but it was a well made piece.

I would like to get one just to test it out but will have to get the ok from upper headquarters.

To me, the .380 looks ugly and the .38 special looks like most of S&W's "J" framed revolvers. I never liked the small grip on those revolvers.
huh? I thought I was a fan of S&W?
