Why do you regret selling? I thought that the trigger on the bodyguard was so bad that it made it hard to shoot accurate, or maybe things changed since they first came out?
I remember shooting it very well, sold it after I got a hammer less light weight J-Frame in .357 (can’t remember the model) most unpleasant handgun to shoot I ever owned, then ended up buying the same gun in a steel frame hoping it would be better... should have just never let go of the Bodyguard...Why do you regret selling?

Buy a variety of ammo.. BG is the most finicky gun I’ve ever owned. Dumped that thing quick couldnt trust that to perform as my EDC. I conceal my 365 just as easy nowI got it for the convenience of a pocket gun in some circumstances. Trigger is long but plan on training alot to get used to it.
I've owned a lot of pocket pistols and the BG380 is the only one I never even considered buying. The trigger feel is horrible, they're kinda chunky, and I keep reading posts about reliability/quality problems years after they first started popping up.
I have one also, got it for my wife, no way she could pull it. I have about 3000 rounds and 2000 dry fires in it and it's still tight. I keep it on my ankle, but also hope I don;t have to resort to it as a last option.
I think I was mistaken here, I was talking about a S&W Bodyguard revolver in .38 Special, a J-Frame with a shrouded hammer...Mine is indeed crap. Super long, which can be ok in some guns (Kahr comes to mind there), but it also has a lot of creep and grit, with a very unsatisfying break. Then there's the fact that when fully pulled, it feels like your trigger finger is in the palm of your hand, making the grip awkward. A lot of this can be worked out of the gun, but honestly, I never felt interested in it enough to do it. Add in light primer strikes and mine has been a safe queen after the first month shooting it. I got mine free though from a friend bringing me into shooting, so I can't complain too much.
Although, mine was also second hand, so who knows if I just have a beat up gun. I just disliked how the trigger made me almost break form/grip with how far back I had to pull in such a tiny gun.

Shame on S&W for recycling names like that and confusing us!Whoops! My fault. Should have backtracked further for context. I was talking about my BG380 semi auto, so what I wrote doesn't apply to your revolver (at least I have no experience with the revolver).
