Its about time they offered the .380 body guard without the laser. Its pretty useless
I agree the BG380 laser is like **** on a boar, but at the prices they can be had for these days I'm not certain what S&W thinks they're going to get out of a "sans laser" version.
Don't be an asshat.
Pretty much always looking to buy a Colt Combat or Lt.Weight Commander in 38 Super or 9mm
That model 69 will be mine before the years end.

Nothing crazy exciting. Nothing to get me to pull money out of the bank anyways.
the model 69 has me interested also
It's all true!!! The Boogieman IS real, and you found him!!!
Look like some safe bets on the BG and the new paint on the MP15-22 and the revolvers aught to be a hit. I'd like to see a shorter Model 66 and REALLY hoped for a .45 version of the Shield to compete with the XDs
Most over used word on INGO - Flawless.
Might have to check out that body guard for the lady friend..
