I own both a Ruger LCP and a Kahr P380, of those two the Kahr totally outclasses the Ruger. The Ruger works well but is uncomfortable to shoot. The Kahr has good sights and a great trigger and is very comfortable to shoot. The Bodyguard has all the Kahrs features and more, there is an unobtrusive thumb safety and the nifty built in laser. I f the new Bodyguard shoots as good as it looks and feels it will be my first choice.
    The Bodyguard 38 has some interesting innovations most notable being the built in laser. The cylinder rotates clockwise and gone is the old cylinder hand. The trigger is great out of the box and as good as my Ruger LCRs. The grip is very comfortable and the gun is rated for +P ammo. I can't wait to get thes two out to the range.
    Can't wait to hear your opinions after about 100 rounds through the 380. Actually about the 38 also. Keep us informed

    Yes, please keep us updated. I was at Cabela's this past weekend and they still didn't have one. I really want to hold one in my hand before making my mind up.

    How is the trigger on the bodyguard .380? The one thing I have hated about my LCP is the false first reset point.

    The store that i work in has had both, I am not overly impressed with the revolver but liked the 380. I sold the 380 Bodyguard last saturday I am waiting for a range report from the customer that purchased it.
