About the Gun

The new Bodyguard series of handguns consists of both a revolver and semi-automatic model distinguished by a lightweight polymer frame with factory integrated laser optics. Both models have been designed in conjunction with Insight Technology, a leader in the laser optics field. The semi-automatic pistol is chambered for the .380 ACP round and has a Melonite coated stainless steel slide and barrel. The revolver is chambered for the .38 Special +P round and features a one-piece aluminum alloy upper frame along with a steel reinforced polymer lower frame. The barrel and cylinder on the revolver are both stainless steel. The cylinder is coated with a durable, non-reflective, matte black PVD finish. Both handguns are double-action only (DAO) with concealed hammers.

About the Cartridge

Designed by John Browning and introduced by Fabrique Nationale of Belgium, this cartridge has achieved world-wide acceptance and has even been adopted as the standard pistol cartridge by several governments. One reason for the round's success is that it is the largest practical cartridge that can be easily adapted to small automatic pocket pistols. Ballistics fall far short of even the 9mm Luger, but still prove adequate for most self-defense situations. The round has established quite a niche position in this role, often being chosen over more traditional small calibers such as the .25 and .32 Autos.
