Saw a deal I couldn't resist and picked one up. I had been toying with the idea of getting a pocket pistol for a while, and had it narrowed down to the LCP and the Bodyguard. Decided on the BG because of its double strike ability and slide lock. (I'll still probably get the LCP, though.) Ideally, I'd rather be carrying something 9mm or larger. However, this pistol allows for easy pocket carry, I can even carry it when I'm jogging. (My G26 isn't exactly conducive to workout clothes) Bottom line, I'd rather have this than nothing. I'm going to go shoot it this weekend. My serial # starts w/EATxxxx, so hopefully I won't have the problems with the takedown lever that I've heard so much about.
