    Hi from a new member

    I registered some time back, but I just got my first compact revolver, a new S&W Bodyguard, the polymer pistol. I went in for a 442 that I had seen before, but it was gone, and other than some S&Ws out of my price range, this was it. The laser is nice, but I don't really see using it in an emergency- the button is on top and takes a thumb press to activate- a pressure switch in the grip would have been ideal, but the laser isn't a big deal to me.

    The light weight IS a big deal to me. I like being able to carry it in the front pocket of Bermuda shorts without it dragging them down. Heck, it fits in my shirt pocket without much fuss. I shot it at the range right after I bought it, with +P Federal 129gr Hydra-Shok, and the recoil was very manageable. It's no 6" 686, but shots can be aimed, and follow up shots weren't too bad to keep on target. For the intended use, it should serve just fine.

    I do have a nice dry lube (WS2) I'd like to apply to the various contact points, but it doesn't seem to come apart like a regular S&W, and I'm not very anxious to ruin my new gun. It did wonders for the triggers in my rifles and AKs. I wonder if a gunsmith could take it apart and apply the WS2 for me for a decent fee......

    Anyway I have some reading to do here- going to browse the various forums and read the stickies.

    Good to be a member.
