    I havent shot one, but it is butt ugly and kinda klunky handeling. I wasnt to impressed to be honest. I does have some whiz bang type features that will create a lot of sales though.

    I too would be interested in cost, for what you get I am not sure if a few dollars and the Sig 238 might be better.

    I would like to hold one and see what I think. I have a PM9 so it better be considerably smaller for me to consider getting one....but I like the looks of it and like the built in laser.

    Both my Bodyguard 380 and Bodyguard 38 arrived last week and if I had to describe both in one word it would be "WOW". First the 380, S&W did there homework and came up with a pistol that blows most of the competition away. The gun has a quality feel to it and feels great in the hand. 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.
