A friend bought one for his wife and I got to shoot it this spring. My impression is the same as yours. Nice little gun. The laser can be helpful as well. I'm new to snubbies and accuracy with irons was poor. However, with the laser it did quite well.
Later I went shopping for a snubbie and picked up a very nice used Model 37. It doesn't shoot as soft as the Bodyguard but the accuracy with iron sights is better.
