I recommend taking a look at the Beretta Pico. At first, the pistol had a few issues, but Beretta listened and fixed them. I have an upgraded version and I love it. It is my EDC pocket pistol.My son is wanting a small pistol to carry, when he can't carry his CZ. He likes the thumb safety on my S&W Shield. I seen that the Bodyguard has a thumb safety, but I have never had one. He has been looking at the Ruger this week.
Just want to hear some thoughts on these two guns. What is you likes and dislikes of each model, if you have owned them. I might even look at some other pistols about the same size, but kind of between these two at the moment. They both seem to be pretty easy to find and they don't cost an arm and a leg.
The build quality is very good for the price. The sights are great. The pistol is hammer fired and trigger is DAO. The only caveat is that the pistol has to be dry fired with a snap cap to protect the firing pin.
I carry mine in a Desantis Nemisis and I use a grip sleeve.
