    I bought one if these last month for my carry after much research snd consideration. It rocks! Highly accurate, smooth recoil, readable sights, lightweight, ergonomically comfortable for my m/l hands, and sharp looking.

    Anyone elae have thoughts on rhis baby?

    Yeah I own one as well. It does have a little kick to it. More than my XDm 9mm. But I'm getting used to it more every time I shoot it.

    It's a good little pocket gun.

    It looks just like a wallet in my back pocket. I got it for $30 off of Amazon Prime. Nine months of the year I'm wearing shorts and a golf shirt, so I don't want anything that is bigger.

    I hear ya!! I use a Galco King Tuk usually when I wear shorts with a belt. Running shorts or gym shorts, I carry my Bodyguard or P238 in the pocket. This is nice. I worry about exposure.

    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.

    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 !! :)
