    LCP or Bodyguard, and why... GO!

    Interested in opinions of those that have or have shot both.

    Thanks.

        .380 Sucks. Get a S&W Shield and don't look back. It's a great shooter so you won't mind practicing with it at the range.

          Already have full size and mid sized carry guns. Looking for a true pocket gun. Wallet sized, but easy on the wallet.

          I know the .380 is not a popular round, but it's better than nothing.

            .380 is fine, besides most handguns do not have stopping power and shot placement is key....p238 is the best pocket gun I have tried for shot placement due to low recoil and 1911 type trigger

              Problem is, the LCP with a laser is still a couple of hundred less than the p238... and lighter...

                yeah I get it, it is more expensive

                but unlike the LCP you will want to bring it to the range with you every time you go

                plus the gun s nice enough to hand down to your kids

                It worth waiting a few months to save up the extra dough for one

                plus they make a .22lr conversion kits, so in the long run you can save on ammo

                    I've got a LC 380 and it works fine. Shoot good, hides well

                      I have the bodyguard and it is what it is, a small inexpensive pocket gun. Not fun to shoot but you have others for that. I bring it every time I go to a range and put at least 50-100 rounds through it. Never a jam or misfire. Sights suck but it's self defense so who needs sights. I get good groups at 7 yards with just point and shoot. Since you can't draw from a pocket around here I drill by putting on bench picking up fire 3 rounds and put down.

                              I have an LC9 and have shot both the LCP and the Bodyguard.. I didn't care much for the Bodyguard at all. Didn't feel very comfortable to grip and I really disliked the trigger. Because its slightly larger they've added some enhanced features. I can see it attracting a certain segment of buyers who find those things as must haves. On a pistol this small I don't get the need. Personally I prefer the feel of the LCP and the LC9 over the Bodyguard. The trigger is a little better but still long.. But like others have said it is what is and with size comes a trade off.. Obviously, its not meant for hours upon hours of range time bliss. With ultra concealability being the driving force, I'd choose the LC.
