S&W Bodyguard .38 Usage and Features
Are you right or left handed?
What features does this gun have that appealed to you?
I have very small hands and had a hard time finding a grip that felt comfortable. The grip on the bodyguard is extremely comfortable and it’s easy for me to hold.
Tell us about shooting this gun.
Because this gun is a revolver it’s not a light trigger pull but it’s not bad. The size of the grip definitely helps with this.
How would you describe the recoil, is it manageable?
The recoil is manageable, but you need to practice with it.
How does it fit your hand, are the controls of this gun easy to use? (Safeties, slide pull, magazine release, trigger pull, etc.)
This fits my hand perfectly. There is no safety to mess with and you don’t have remember to pull the slide to load a round into the chamber. There is also a laser on this model that is easy to access.
Do you like the sights on this gun?
Yes. The sights are simple and easy to use.
How reliable is it?
Very reliable. Pull and shoot. No slide to fool with.
For someone considering this gun, what would you tell them?
I spoke with several people while considering my concealed carry weapon. What really made the difference to me was that two different police officers recommended a revolver because it is less likely to jam.
Would you recommend this gun? If no, do you have a preferred gun?
Yes. I would recommend this gun.
