After much deliberation, I decided to trade my Taurus .357 snub nose for an S&W .357 ultra light rigs. I wound up leaving the store with an S&W Bodyguard .380, and I love it. Took it on it's first vacation to MS this past week, and it carries nice--thin and light weight. Did a little target practice with it, and I was VERY surprised at the accuracy--even with the laser sight. I loaded it up with Hornady critical defense, and am confident it it's capabilities. The only autos I have are 1911's (plus a Glock I don't claim), and have trusted revolvers as smaller carry pieces. I went through a box of ball ammo, and had no problems. Additionally, the safety is in a great spot and easy to disengage. The ONLY drawback is the looong trigger pull--don't count on any competition shoots with this gun. However, it will consistently put rounds in a 10" ring at 30 yrds. I give it two thumbs up.
