I'm stuck in a hard place and need advice for these guns...

I have a bodyguard 380, shoots well but I wanted to get another for my wife... Which one do you think is the better choice?

I want this for my wife for CCW. Something accuracy, easy to use with the most punch in a small package....I know the LCP is a 380 but wanted to compare it with the bodyguard.

Thanks everyone!

well, for women that dont tend to be at the range once or twice a week, it dsnt get any easier then a revolver. My gf has a hard time figuring out a semi auto... i dont kno why, she literally is a scientist! hahaha, but i just tell her to get a revolver. wont jam, and they are solid! just pull out and squeeze trigger...

Well she goes with me and shoots but just wanted something thin, small and compact for ccw. She likes my xd40 and can shoot as well as me with that thing... But her small body will definantly will show a gun profile with the xd.

I've seen the cw9 and she has too but for some reason she doesn't like it much... I am considering the LCP but what are it's advantage over the others?

Ma CW9 is the most reliable handgun(tied w/g27) I own...never a problem with 1000's downrange. Much more accurate than you would think...try a houge handall to fatten up the grip a bit...ver nice! I'd take a 9mm over a .380 anyday!

I changed my recoil spring on my lcp to make it run 100%. I chose Wolff springs with a higher # rating than the factory. It's harder to rack the slide now, but it feeds any kind of ammo. My wife is having a hard time racking it. Make sure your girl is able to rack the tiny lcp slide before you purchase one.

Thanks, that is one of my highest priority. For her to be able to rack the gun. Are any of the other gun mention harder to rack? I know the BG is easy but trigger pull is out of the question. Is the PF-9 any easier?

How about Kel-Tec P-11? Same height, slightly shorter length, teeny bit thicker (tenth of an inch) as the PF-9 but holds 3 more rounds in the mag. ...and 9mm...

Or, if you like your Bodygaurd so much, why not another one???

+1. I have a p-11 great little gun (I am not a large guy).
I had to back order a pf-9 BTW, 6 month wait... :eek:

Oh I don't like like my BG, it's trigger pull is too hard for my wife. I thought about the p-11 too but my wife is usually in shorts/t-shirts... Anything will help with thinnest.

I just went in today to put money down on a Bersa 380 and they showed me the LC9. Wow, it had a lot better feel then I thought it would and boy is it slim. It was $399 to my Bersa's $325. In the end, the Bersa is for the wife and it was her choice but if it was for me? I would have gotten the LC9.

The P-11 is basically the same size as the LC9, only slightly wider. Not much wider though. Nice that it does have 10rnd mag. The LC9 is much nicer in my opinion, nicer finish and way nicer trigger. I personally have a CW9 as a EDC but am tempted to hang on to my last LC9 I have in stock.

See my sig.

Not to be rude but I had a friend of mines buy a PT140 and it's sights flew off the first 20 rounds...then had light strike on the primers. Customer service wasnt to happy to hear about it and even though the gun was literally 3 day old, they charged for the little screw that came off and said nothing about the light strikes. We went to Reno a few months later and a friend got the 9mm, we did a defensive shooting course and his gun light strike 8/10 rounds....Not that I dont like them, I just dont want my wife to have all the trouble "in case" you know... But thanks though! I appreciate the option. ;)

I'm a homebased dealer so let me know when you might be passing through and I can give directions. I have an LC9, CW9, LCP, and P-11 here to compare.
