Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380 Variations & Comparables
“The Smith & Wesson Shield EZ is a great gun for those that need a little help in the racking department. The slide rides smoothly on the rails, making it easy to load a round in the chamber. Ergonomics are pretty good, except for the slide release which is just okay. Overall, it’s a soft and smooth shooter — perfect for those with hand difficulties, new shooters, or older shooters.”
The Ruger LCP is a .380 chambered semi-auto pistol that offers a convenient concealed carry gun to those looking for a slim pistol. Perfect for pocket carry, this tiny pistol also works well as a backup gun. It can hold 6+1 rounds in a standard mag and 7+1 in the extended mag.
“The Ruger LCP II is a fantastic option for people looking for an easily concealed .380 ACP pistol. It is surprisingly accurate, considering its size, and plenty reliable for self-defense. One thing we’d like to see is better customization options. All in all, we really like this gun.”
The Walther CCP M2 is the first polymer pistol to use a gas-delayed operating system in the form of Walther’s Soft-Coil technology. This system both reduces the felt recoil and makes the slide easier to rack. Also present is Walther’s trademark great ergonomics, which further help make the CCP comfortable to shoot for anyone. Tool-less takedown and a fixed barrel allow for easy maintenance as well. These single-stack pistols are great for anyone, but especially those with reduced hand strength.
The Glock 43 harnesses all the world-renowned reliability that Glock is known for, all in a tiny package. Coming in just under 1 inch wide and under 14 ounces, the G42 is easy to conceal, no matter the method or environment. These guns feature an extended beavertail, textured grip, and enlarged magazine to help manage recoil and ensure smooth operation. For those looking for a reliable, concealable pistol, these single-stack 6+1 pistols are great.

“Carrying the S&W Bodyguard 380 is convenient, you almost forget you have it on you since it’s so light. Obviously, ergonomics, size, and weight can make or break a CCW, and the Bodyguard is an all-around solid pick. It might not be a standout, but it’s inexpensive and has great features.” – Trevor Dobrygoski
