    If you don't mind me asking, why the difference in the guns? One's a $2,500 gun and the other less than a 1/4 of that? Either way, my buddy has the bodygaurd and loves it. Sorry, I know that's not firsthand experience, but he's pretty experienced so his word means quite a bit to me.

    I don't have either, but I've been reading about a lot of laser issues with both of the Bodyguard models on several forums. Nothing negative about the BG .38 itself. Research is recommended.

    I have the S&W 638 and love it. Very accurate even at 25 yards.

    If it's a Rock River and not a Rock Island...go for it. I've had my paws on a couple and they were great shooters.
