The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 pocket pistol size comparison should help you judge it’s size compared to the other .380 ACP pocket pistols on the market.
Before we get started I believe it is important for us to put an “*” next to the Bodyguard 380 because it offers features that the others do not offer. The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 is the only pistol in this comparison that comes with a factory installed laser on the base model, or in this case the only model.
With the laser option the price of $399 is really a bargain! MSRP of the Bodyguard is only $26 more than the Ruger LCP. If you know of a $26 laser for the LCP “without duct taping a laser pointer to it” let us know!
It would appear that the Bodyguard 380 is really the best bargain in the bunch. However, if you do not like having a laser then the bargain price transitions into just a good price.
The size of the Smith & Wesson is also deceiving in this comparison because of the finger extension on the magazine, for that reason we added two adjusted images to compansate for the magazine extension.
Once you take into account the size of the laser and the mag extension the Bodyguard all of a sudden becomes one of the most compact .380 ACP pocket pistols at the gun shop.
So it is our opinion that with a broader understanding of the Bodyguard’s features we need to be certain we are comparing apples to apples not apples to oranges while stacking it up against other .380 ACP concealed carry options.
With all of this in mind it is possible that the Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 could be viewed as the BEST OF BREED!
