Looking for a carry weapon to carry inside my best
I have had one for over a year and love it.
It is my daily carry & bedside weapon of choice.
It has a very long and very heavy DA only trigger. Like 12# heavy and that takes getting used to at the range. But once you figure out where it breaks & when to aim you can hit targets at distance w/ it (15 yds or so).
Just practice with it. It is a very well made gun and easily handles .38+P loads.
Also it is extremely small, light & concealable. I carry it in a pocket holster and no one knows it's there!
Be sure to also check Ruger's LCR. The LCR is available in a .357 mag model in addition to the .38 special model.
The .357 LCR is getting scarce around my area.
Yeah i heard them two are the best the bodyguard and lcr
I have the bodyguard 38 and i love it as an everyday carry. The only thing I don't like about it is turning the laser on but if you're a shooter you shouldn't need it.
I have the S&W airweight 642 in 38sp.. We love the gun. The bodyguard and the LCR are also very good guns. Cant go wrong either way..
I love my 637 Airweight. Great for ankle holsters.
Make sure you're happy with the trigger on the bodyguard before you buy it.
What MM said. Took me a while to get used to mine and shoot decent groups. The way it's constructed, you can't do a trigger job on a Bodyguard. You've gotta shoot it. The up side, as others have said, it's light and easily concealed.
Had to send mine back to factory. 10 shots firef out of box, 3 ftf's.
Do revolvers have FTFs?
I suppose you could have a failure to fire if the cylinder was out of time or if there were issue with the internals.
Oh, I see. I thought FTF was "Failure to Feed".
Lol I think the two are interchangeable. But I assumed he was talking about failure to fire since it was a revolver.
I love my S&W 638 Airweight, especially the single action feature. Shouded hammer so it is still good for concealed carry.
You are probably right. I learn something new every day here. Awesome!!
Not a huge fan, it seems like every other person I meet has one though, so that says something. The only reason I'm not crazy about them is the same reason I'm not crazy about any sub compact pocket pistol. They are not fun for me to shoot, and uncomfortable.
Yes they were "failure to fire". Three trigger pulls followed by a click.
Using Remington ammo.
I have to say that after getting the bodyguard back from the s&w repair center, i fired off a full box of fifty rounds without any problems. They replaced the hand that holds the cylinder and pin spring. So i am happy with it now.
