Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Review

smith and wesson bodyguard 380 reviewI’ve owned several guns from Smith & Wesson, and I’ve liked them all. However all of them obviously aren’t designed for the same types of situations and all of them do not have the same functionalities.

This weekend I purchased a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 with the Crimson Trace laser. I then took it to the range for a little testing.

It operated just like I suspected any other small handgun would. It was only accurate enough at a distance of about two car links max. Which is about perfect for a real-life situation. I’ll also note that the Crimson Trace laser greatly increased accuracy.

When it comes to a holster, there are several options. I went with the inside-the-waistband Bladetech. Also to make the grip a bit easier to use, I’ve ordered the Garrison grip extension. The grip is a bit small in my opinion, but I guess that is the trade off in having a gun that is so concealable.

Bottom line is that the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 is a great gun for concealment, and a great gun to get an attacker off of you from a short distance. However if your attacker has a buddy, you better make every shot count or carry your Smith & Wesson M&P Pro Series.
