The Bodyguard 380 with Laser is a modern polymer concealed carry pistol.

Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 with Laser and Extended Magazine Floor-Plate.

The original Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 was the first micro sized pistol to integrate a laser into the design.  When initially released it offered several advantages over the common Ruger and Keltec .380” ACP carry pistols.  Though of similar construction, it is heavier, making it both easier to shoot and rack the slide.  In fact it is one of the easiest micro sized pistols to rack.  It several differences from typical polymer framed micro sized pistols including:

        - It uses a hammer concealed within the slide and frame, instead of a striker in the firing mechanism.

        - It has an external thumb safety for safer carrying with a round chambered.

        - Several versions have an integral laser built into the frame.

The early versions of this gun have now been replaced by M&P versions.  These older versions still have the same handling aspects, being very accurate, but not as much fun to shoot as steel framed pistols of similar size.   The laser in these versions, while not as good as Crimson Trace laser, is still an excellent laser and fully integrated into the frame design.
