From the Vault: S&W Bodyguard .38spl

Big time tough guy Mr. T once said:  “To be a bodyguard is to be a kamikaze pilot. Dedicated.”  Seems like Mr. T had one of these little buggers in his pocket when he made this quote!!  The most properly fitting adjective for today’s version of “From the Vault” is just that……dedicated!  We are most ecstatic to bring you the S&W Bodyguard .38spl Insight!!


Smith & Wesson is a leading manufacturer of firearms in the United States.  Founded in 1852, Smith & Wesson is headquartered in Springfield, Mass. and their pistols and revolvers have become standard issue to police and armed forces throughout the world. Smith & Wesson firearms have gained popularity among sport shooters and responsible armed citizens alike.  The Bodyguard got it’s basis from the Model 10 which was introduced in 1899 and has steadily been the carry choice for shooters from all walks of life.  Since the early 2000’s the polymer framed Bodyguard has wowed consumers with its small J-frame.  Chambered in .38spl this little gal packs a punch!!


This small framed revolver is ideally carried concealed IWB or even on the ankle.  We keep our Bodyguard loaded with Civil Defense Ammo manufactured by Liberty.  As you can see, extra ammo can be carried easily with speed strips or even speed loaders.  It’s compact size makes it an ideal carry for women shooters wishing compact carry as well.  The Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 38spl is a lightweight, simple-to-use revolver.  It was uniquely engineered by Smith & Wesson to be the most state-of-the-art, concealable and accurate personal protection pistol in it’s class.  Smith & Wesson made sure to include the latest upgrade in laser sighting technology for optimal accuracy.  Our pistol came fully integrated with INSIGHT®, a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of tactical lasers (most of the newer models come with Crimson Trace Laser units mounted).  This laser system is ergonomically placed perfectly and can be easily turned off and on by right or left handed shooters.

All in all this little guy gets the PSA stamp of approval!!
