This is the new Bodyguard with the plastic grip frame and the standard laser. Other than my 3" SP101, it's the only snubby I've shot. Trying to decide between it, a Ruger LCR, and a 642 for pocket carry. Likes: *Laser near bore line *Laser ON/OFF switch independent of grip *Not much recoil with either .38 wadcutters or 110 gr. Hornady Critical Defense ammo (+P?) *Slim smooth grip seemed good for pocket carry & easy to control *Accuracy with laser decent at 10 yds. Dislikes: *Sloppy cylinder fit *Needs XS-Big Dot front sight (for me anyway) *Toy-like cylinder release Haven't seen much about the Bodyguard on the gun forums; yet the LCR and the 642/442 are praised to the skies. Can anyone tell me how it stacks up against the competition before I throw away my money?
