My new baby

So, I went shopping today. Nothing unusual about that, right? Well, kind of. I went shopping for my first handgun. I walked into the store and zeroed right in on this little guy. Cute, right? Yeah, I thought so too. I liked it before I saw the name, then I loved it! Hubby tried to talk me into something much bigger but there would be no way for me to conceal carry with it unless I just stuck it in my purse. I am not real fond of that idea, I rummage around in my purse and if I ever needed to use it, I would never be able to draw it in time. The guy behind the counter pulled out both the Zombie Slayer and the bigger gun for me to try. I was right, the big gun was too big for me to handle comfortably. Then I tried the cute little Zombie gun (I still LOVE the name!) Dang it! The grip was too small to hold comfortably. Good bye Zombie Slayer, I wish it would have worked out for us, we are just not compatable. :(
Hubby asks the guy behind the counter if he has any Smith and Wesson Bodyguards in stock. They didn't. They are ALWAYS back ordered he said. He did have one that was already bought for someone else though and brought it out for me to see. It fit my hand like a glove. This is the one. The name is not nearly so cool, but obviously that is not what's important. The Bodyguard is small and compact and would be easy to conceal. It fits my hand well and I think I will really like this gun. I will post pics as soon as it comes in.


  1. Good choice! I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

  2. Congrats! Looks awesome. I hope you don't have to wait too long for it to arrive. I'm getting ready to shop for my first handgun, so I'll see if there are any of these around when I start looking.

  3. My wife likes her LCP, loves her Bodyguard.
