Rated 5 out of 5 by My first gun purchase. Ever. I pretty much describe myself as a 52 year old wife and mom who loves all things "creative". Although my husband and our three teenaged kids all like to shoot and/or hunt, I never cared anything about it. In recent months and for various reasons, I began to open up to the idea of it and a little less than a month ago, my husband and I went to our local Bass Pro store and I purchased my first gun ever, this little Smith & Wesson Bodyguard. We have an outdoor range at our house and I have thoroughly enjoyed using my little revolver. My husband, our daughter and one of our boys shoot semi-automatics and I've practiced with them, too, but I am far more comfortable with my revolver and I love the ease of loading that doesn't come with their semi-automatics. I started a Concealed Carry class last night, will complete it tomorrow night, and I am looking forward to more classes and more shooting. I hope, of course, that I never NEED to use my gun for personal protection, but I believe that it will ease my mind knowing that it will be there if I ever need it. I would definitely recommend this gun to anyone like myself that is new to the "gun world". July 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding personal defense firearm My primary CCW has been a Colt 3" Python for years but I have been looking for a lighter and smaller replacement as I approach the 60 year mark. I have taken Massad Ayoob's LFI-1 and II and was in the firearms distribution business for 8 years so have a pretty good background to judge a good carry piece. I feel this J frame with its light weight, even with the integrated laser, and small size makes it a top candidate for CCW. I use a Bianci #3 IWB holster, the polymer grip frame is what's in contact with skin so corrosion is not an issue. A pocket holster is another good choice. I'm on the fence as to which 38 +P load I'll be using but I am leaning towards the Winchester 130 grain PDX1 bonded jacket HP's. a little extra weight over the various 110 grain options that will give better penetration that might be needed during the colder months with heavier clothing. BTW, while I prefer a revolver in critical self defense situations I have been known to carry a street tuned Colt Combat Commander 45 in a Galco " Miami Special" shoulder rig as well as a Beretta 92F Compact in a IWB while wearing outer wear. I love my autos but I just have a somewhat old school love of my revolvers November 26, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice pistol for a woman or man This was my first purchase of a handgun. I wanted something for home protection and as a novice, wanted a handgun that was manageable and wouldn't jam in the event I HAD to use it. Most handguns felt too big for my hand. & when I picked this one up, it felt great. The laser sight was an added bonus. After getting it on the range and shooting some rounds, I was disappointed in my accuracy without the use of the laser sight. Read a few things on how that could be improved. #1 - .38+P ammo packs some punch and therefore more recoil so I purchased the regular .38 ammo instead. That helped. #2 - The grip. Smooth grip without finger holds (for me) lessens the accuracy. for someone with a bigger hand this might not be an issue. Since the gun is relatively new to the market, after market grips are difficult to find. Hogue is 're-working' the 60020 for the Bodyguard, so I have one on backorder. September 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great short range protection Once adjusted the laser is great. Makes using it a breeze for a novice and adds accuracy to experienced shooters. Absolutely no issues encountered thus far. March 28, 2012

I understand they are in the works. The Bodyguard is so different from other Smith's they have a bit of tooling that needs to be done

A: 
Unless it specifically says +p. I'd just stick with .38 special loads only. If you plan to reload .38's just stay within limits of .38 special loads, no need to hammer your gun to death with power loads.

A: 
38 Special +P gives you almost 357 performance but it kicks more. A 110 grain +P is a good compromise but I prefer the Winchester 130 grain bonded core load.

38 special, 38 special, 38 special. If you want a 357, BUY a 357, then you can shoot 357, and 38 special. snubbies, are MEAN to shoot, with 357 mag ammo.

A: 
Do not ever attempt to shoot 357 Ammo in a 38. 38 Ammo can be fired in a 357, but that would still only employ the speed and power of a 38...which to me is pointless..
