I love mine. I have read lots of negative reviews online but have never known anyone personally that have owned one a d had any complaints.
I had to sell my 709 slim. Ftf every mag. I tried different ammo and even polished the feed ramp. I have a Ruger lcp on hold at my lgs. They actually have an Arizona 100 anniversary edition for three same price. The frame is a copper color.FOSJosh said:Some people dislike Taurus but I have the Slim 709 9mm which has been an immaculate pistol. Good size & weight and they also come in 40 cal.
When I had my bodyguard I bought about 200 rounds of mixed ammo from a guy that works at a range. I probably had about 10 or so different brands of ammo, all different kinds from FMJ to semi wad cutters to hollow points. I mixed the mags up with the random ammo and the Bodyguard ran beautifully. I did have one round that didn't go off but it was a bad primer on that particular round, not the guns fault. I was very surprised with the overall feel and accuracy of the bodyguard. it's a great gun, enjoy it!So far after 200 rounds through the bodyguard I've had no failures of any kind. So far I'm super happy with my choice.
If you like the sig. p232, try finding the older version the p230. I had a p230sl (sl = stainless), and it was a great gun, it was accurate, never had a ftf, all around a good .380. The p230 goes for around 300 to 400 dollars. It doesn't come with hogue grips, but the are easy to find. I traded mine for a Kahr pm9. Only because I also have a Walther PPKS in .380. The only thing that is a little different is the European magazine release. Which in my opinion makes it a better pocket pistol.PJones said:Was wanting to get a small backup gun that I could carry in my front pocket. I'm not really a revolver guy so would like it to be semi auto. I don't really like the ones with the milled on sights, seems like they would be hard to shoot. The ones that I've seen with real sights have been the S&W BG380 and the Sig P232(not 100% if that's what it's called). The S&W is $400 and the Sig is $600. Don't have a problem paying the $600 if the Sig is really nice. Any input will help me out tons.
Thanks in advanced.
Diamondback 9mm. It's small. Very.TNFrank said:I've got my G30 in a Blackhawk size 03 Pocket Holster in the pocket of my shorts right now. It doesn't "disappear" but most folks wouldn't know what it was so it really doesn't matter. It all depends on the size of your pockets.
I've read many, many threads by folks who have said these guns are VERY unreliable and basically Junk. I'd personally stay away from em'. Small and Reliable, Ruger LCP but like I said before, you're banking on a 380acp to save your life. Sure, it'll kill someone but might not do it until after they kill you. I'd stay with 9x19mm or larger(45acp gets my vote) with quality HP ammo. There's no Free Lunch, you want something you can stick in a pocket you'll give up performance, you want something with a more proven track record you give up small size.Diamondback 9mm. It's small. Very.
I have firsthand experience with the DiamondCrap DB9.glocker73 said:IMO, you would better off throwing the DB9/.380 at the bad guys than trying to shoot them! They may resemble a Glock, but just in form! Defiantly not function!!!
