I bought mine 3 weeks ago for summertime /shorts carry, normally I carry my G27 which I love, but I wanted something lighter and smaller for golfing/fishing, paid $370 for mine on sale. Looked at all the 380's and this one just felt best in the hand, real sights (that can be adjusted or switched out) last round slide lock-back, double action trigger for light primer strikes and this little weapon is issued as back up for LAPD. I bought Hornady Defense rounds for carry and love how it shoots at the range! I bought a Desantis insider BG holster for $20 bucks on MidwayUSA. Below is a vid with a gel test for 380 Hornady Defense, the other vid is great review on the Bodyguard380.

The size of the Bodyguard lends itself to a few options. It works in a pocket, with a pocket holster or without. IWB isn't too bad with a good holster. I bought a Desantis Sof-Tuk for mine. I also ordered a paddle holster for it, from Fobus. I like the size of the pistol and the choice of holsters when I carry. One of each holster should make it easier to carry, no matter how you dress.

Google Mika holsters and have them make a pocket holster for your gun. Mine works great! Stays in the pockect when you draw.

I bought a body guard for $379 at a local gun store. Just order a sneaky pete holster. Great for summer time carry.

My micro Desert Eagle even fits in a shirt pocket, with pocket holster. Looks like the BG would, too, and if somebody would buy one for me, I'd try it out !!
