Plus not only is it great out of the oven, a slice cold for breakfast or lunch is also great. (I originally came up with this to be gluten-free for a friend with Celiac disease but now, I just like it as is and it's easier to make than a homemade pie crust) 3 1/2 to 4 and 1/2 cups shredded hash browns thawed and blotted well with a paper towel to remove any moisture.(My pie pan is fairly large so I used 4 and 1/2 cups) 1/2 stick butter, melted Mix and pat into and up the sides of a pie pan. 22-25 minutes (edges should just begin to brown a little).The release latch is moderately flared on its top and left side, providing the shooter with an extra bit of purchase while unlatching the cylinder. The BODYGUARD 380 is Kylie Minogue to the BODYGUARD 38’s Nikki Blonsky.The release is truncated on the right side and chopped on the right to accommodate the laser. The semi-automatic pistol’s small and [almost] perfectly formed, with superb fit and finish. The laser’s molded into the frame, sitting comfortably forward of the trigger guard and below the barrel My only : the left side of the pistol looks somewhat cluttered, with three levers trying to occupy barely two linear inches. By way of comparison, a Model 442 Airweight, a similar internal-hammer variant of Smith & Wesson’s storied J-frame, tips the scales at 15 ounces without a laser. Fitting an aftermarket, side-mounted laser would cost around 0 and add about an ounce of weight.Ergonomics (carry) * * * * * It’s tiny, light and fits easily in a pocket, purse, IWB holster, jock strap or garter belt.If it had a lanyard ring, it could be hung from a gold chain and worn like a necklace. Ergonomics (firing) * * * * The grip is comfortable and even has room for all three fingers including the pinkie. The trigger is too heavy by 50%, but its smooth enough.
The traditional contours of the BODYGUARD 38’s handle accommodated my medium-size shooting hand well enough. Believe you me, nobody wants an unsightly trouser tear in the heat of a gunfight. What didn’t light on the first try, lit the second.Quiche is one of my favorite brunch foods, even if it isn't low calorie the way I make it.But it's a great way to use up chopped leftover meat and veggies or those eggs that are nearing the "best by" date. The top is a wonderful little crunch and the bottom is softer but still holds together.That can’t be, not if the all cartridges fit the chamber properly. No pistol can selectively strike one brand’s primers better than another. Despite the two-handed laser deployment, the Bodyguard 380 is an accurate, easy to carry pistol that’s also a fun shooter that will be enjoyed at the range.What be is that the PPU primers were too hard for this gun to handle. Conclusion It seems to me that Smith & Wesson built the BODYGUARD 38 to a price point, with little thought as to whether or not it was good. A buyer who wants a .380 pistol would not go wrong with the BODYGUARD 380.
The BODYGUARD 380 also compares favorably with competing .380 pocket pistols in terms of weight and price.
