I usually wait at least 6 months to a year after a new firearms hits the streets to buy one so the "bugs" can get worked out but since I really do not need another BUG anyway and already have a S&W 642, Ruger LCP and Kahr PM9 I now use as BUGS, I guess I purchased the S&W Bodyguard cause I just wanted it, and this price is too good to pass up. Express Police Supply has the handgun for $389.99 for civilians and $339.99 for "First Responders" (past or present) and I got free shipping for being a S&W forum member! So I just orderd the gun for $339.99 OTD and my FFL's transfer fee is $15 so I will pay a total of $355 for the new BUG.......thats hard top beat.
here's the link of anyone interested. I don't think you will find one cheaper.
