A couple other questions I've been asked that may be of interest...I don't have any holsters for the S&W yet as I just picked it up from the FFL today. I'm going to get a Galco ankle holster first (since it will be a BUG), I want a high-ride OWB holster for it (probably the Galco COP 3 Slot) and then at some point I would like to get a Supertuck for this firearm as well.What do you do holster-wise for the S&W?
Once I get some holsters for the revolver, I can comment on the difference of concealability as well.Well, I used to own a KelTec P3AT, and I only put a few rounds through it before I decided I didn't like it. I knew that it wasn't going to be a range gun, but I just didn't enjoy shooting it at all. For me, if I'm not going to shoot my weapons, than I'm not going to carry them. So, at that point, the gun had no use for me and I got rid of it. The next logical step for me was a snubnose revolver. Although the revolvers are quite a bit bigger than the small 380 firearms, the round is also quite a bit bigger too. On top of that, I actually (surprisingly) really enjoyed shooting this weapon.Can you tell us some more about why you decided on that particular gun? Compared to say the Bodyguard 380 for instance?
As far as choosing this snubnose over the other options, I did what I usually do. I went to stores and the gunshow to handle and dryfire the different models. I didn't like the feel of the Ruger LCR at all. I also didn't like the feel of the other JFrame models as much as this Bodyguard model. The ambidextrous cylinder release was also somewhat of a bonus for me. The laser had no bearing in my decision at all.
I hope this helps.
