I own a Bodyguard .380 and like it, but 99% of the time it's a J frame snubby .38sp;
It's small enough to carry in a pocket all day, reliable for any imaginable application and fires a good round with a heavy bullet. With any practice, you hit better at extended ranges and reload just as fast as most tiny autos too.
If it's too big, then the .380 goes.
"You need a shotgun, man, it's got a good spread.
It's easy to load, doesn't have a lot of working parts...ya ain't gotta be that accurate, the further away you are the more **** you hit."
