I was looking at it at Gibraltar this weekend, for $425 it's not much more than the Ruger and feels better in hand, with a decent trigger (dry fire, I have yet to shoot one)
Isnt the micro deagle a heavy little bitch?

14 oz according to his link, so almost double a P3AT or LCP

Yeah, it's pretty heavy. Should be a little easier on the hand firing it.

Might be a little weighty to just drop in a pocket, I'd use an IWB holster.

I've never held one, just remember hearing they are quite heavy for the size.

DO NOT BUY THE FIRST REVISIONS OF THIS GUN. my gun has serial number EAX#### and was test fired 10/28/11. anygun before EAF#### has known issues. Also The laser button issues has been fixed in later revisions with the addition of a raised circle in the plastic molding that protects the button from being worn out and prematurely pushed.

I cant get used to it, on a good day i can shoot a 8-10 inch group at 25 feet which pretty much sucks. The sights are good and i think the gun is accurate, i just cant shoot it. I have hopes that a LCP is better but ive heard it both ways.
-Once again i have not shot the lcp but the trigger pull was very long and similar to the BG and lc9 at the store. that being said the trigger on the BG felt ok at the store but i find it a little too long in the real world.
I find that if you pull the trigger three quaters of the way then final aim it increases your accuracy alot. I can hit within the 9 or 10 circle (center) on my splatter targets at 40' everytime.

-if you are the original owner of this gun and if its is a early revision without the laser button ring then call S&W and tell them that the laser buttons arent working right and that the trigger is hard to pull. also tell them that you have had trouble with your takedown lever (even if you havent) they will send you a free shipping label and when you get your gun back it will have a whole new lower unit with a new serial number. I would keep the Bodyguard and get the laser and trigger repaired for free. i found the LCP too small and fragile with no slide lock and the lc9 too big an bulky. love my BG and carry daily.

best of luck on your decision.

Love my LCP. Can't go wrong with one equipped with a Crimson Trace on it. I don't like the S&W BG because of all the extra crap, and a useless laser.

WTF was Ruger thinking?
The LC9 was made for specifically for Californian gun laws. That is why it has all that BS.

Lol, a concealed carry pistol, in a state that barely allows concealed carry. I guess Ruger hasn't changed as much as I thought they had since the old man died.

I finally figured out where I hid my LCP, going to hit the range to get familiar with it again.

i own a Lcr w/crimson sight for one reason, it works and its lightweight...I have shot many rounds thru it , never had any issues, its easy to pull apart and clean and ruger.com has many x-tra's for it...

S&W bodyguard I have never shot it...held it at the gun shop, just the Lcr revolver to me is very dependable and compact aswell.
