I have about 500 bucks of toy money from a friend who is going to room with me for a couple of months.. that means this saturday I'm going to buy a new toy for myself
I've been doing some HEAVY research on the SW Bodyguard 380.... what a sweet little pistol! I was also looking at the taurus PT709... I want a good little pistol that I can throw in my shorts pocket pretty much... when I saw the PT709, I was shocked by it's size, that's no pocket gun! that's sub compact pistol! that idea quickly went out the window... for the size of pistol I want, it has to be a 380...
So I wanted to ask some opinions of my friends here about the P238 and the SW BG 380...
the BG380 was real sweet, but that looonngggg trigger was very unfriendly to me, will def take some time getting used to. it was long, but it felt VERY smooth and steady resistance. Also my duty pistol is a SW MP9, and both felt very similar...
I haven't played with the P238, but it costs about 150-200 more, and I'm not too familiar with 1911 style pistols.
I like that both has full night sights, and the laser is an added bonus I guess, I've never used them, so it'll be interesting
i'll also use it as a BUG with an ankle holster too.
I just wanted to know who has these pistols here and what you guys think about them. I'm going to start a poll and see what you guys would prefer also....
FYI the prices are:
SW BG 380 - 419 with LEO/MIL disc
SIG P238 - 619
oh, and LASTLY, anyone reccomend a pocket AND ankle holster for these pistols?
ETA - wow!!! that's a steal!!!
just hopefully they accept Military as first responder... We technically are :D (also it says private security, would brinks armored truck count?)
