BODYGUARD 38

Thinking of adding a 38 special bodyguard to the collection. Any thoughts/advice? Will be my 1st wheel gun in over 30 years. Is this something I can pocket carry. Will be for EDC rotation and/or special occasions. I carry OWB and sometimes I need to tuck in a shirt but don't really have the body shape for IWB.

I need real input, I can take it!

If you didn't hear already, I got it 5/1/2014. I must have posted it everywhere. It's a bad a** little gun. It makes my .40c feel like a brick weight wise. Still love my autos' tho.

Good for you!

Snubbies are great training aids when shot DA only, too.







Practicing with them DA makes me a better shooter with any handgun!

3 very nice guns. Thanks for the DA tip, I heard it before and that's the only way I have been doing it until I get some trigger control. Wheel gun is new to me.
