I was looking at getting a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 to carry around all of the time, does anyone have this gun or have any suggestions on another gun? Thanks...

I have read that the Ruger has alot of failure to discharges, but I guess that comes with breaking in any new gun.

I haven't had any but I've only shot it about 100 or so times.

Worst case scenario you can just pistol whip your attacker.

I have the Ruger LCP .380, with 7 hollow points. Fits in the front pocket of my suit pants. I have shot it a bunch, never had a problem (knock on wood). The case I have is neat, the back part is shaped like square like a wallet, and it is rugged leather, so that the shape it makes in your pocket doesnt look like a gun.

This is the smallest gun I have carried, and I have carried a few guns. It packs a nice punch with the .380 hollow point, and it 7 shots. The gun is no thicker than a blackberry, but slightly heavier.

I would recommend this over the Taurus, even though you get an extra clip with the Taurus. Best $400 you can spend on a conceal.

Two things.

1) Make sure you take the Carry and Conceal class!

2) You don't end up like Plaxico! "I had my gun in my sweatpants and shot myself in the thigh!"

Truth, and make sure you know when/where you can carry.

If you are carrying a gun like a thug, then....well I will just leave it at that.

Don't try to show off with it... it is designed to carry 6 in the magazine and 1 in the chamber. This model will fire without a magazine.

I've read that some models have trouble with the hammer. I'd go with something else.
