    S&W .380 Bodyguard safety

    I have recently started carrying a .380 Bodyguard in a DeSantis Nemisis holster and I like it quite a bit. The only issue I have with the Bodyguard is the safety. Does anybody make an extended safety for this? The safety is just so small that I have difficulty just wiping it on or off without changing my grip drastically. I normally do not use the safety on a DAO but if the option is available I would consider putting one on.

    I doubt anyone will have one yet, if at all. The reason being you can simply not use it, as you stated. There's one on my LC9 and I never touch it, even though it's in the same general position as the 1911.

    My wife has a bg380 that I sometimes carry in an ankle holster as a bug. I always leave the safety off, the long heavy trigger pull is safe enough to carry.

    The BG380 as a long and heavy trigger pull. I believe I thought I read somewhere that it was measured at 12 pounds and I agree with it as I have one too. 12 pounds is a safety itself !!! God Bless

    I recently got one with a crossbreed mini tuck and love it (the laser seems to be stupid hard to engage tho) I just carry it with the safety off.

    I have a BG380 and like it a lot. If it's kept in a holster that covers the trigger - as opposed to lying about in your wife's purse - it is probably as safe as a Glock. I don't seem to have a problem with reaching the safety but when I carry it for SD, I leave the safety off. I trained with a Glock and I'm sure I would forget to switch the safety of the BG on if I had to draw it in a real SD situation. The LOOOOONG trigger pull seems pretty safe.

    I have the bg 380 and carry that alot also. I leave the safety off as it is too hard to manipulate with my shooting hand finger.
    One more step and it's on!
