Default bodyguard 380 backorder

I have had one on order since late February. Large dealer is St Louis. Just called again.... and they know nothing, have heard nothing.... 15 on order and 12 sold but they have no idea when they will actually come in.

What is up? I know someone will know. I understand some of the teething problems with early production but this is getting frustrating. The sig P238 is more available but it's more money. What to do.........

Anyone know what the deal is?

Have you checked Gunbroker? Bud's Guns? Gallery of Guns? Sure you can find a BG380 one one of these. When you do, order it and cancel the sale with the dealer in St Louis.

They're scarce around here: I've only seen two in stores since they came out and I bought the second one I saw!

I'm pretty sure it is nothing more than a "supply and demand" issue. Thaty have become very popular, and, as you have noticed, they are selling more of the things than they can make.

Dealers in our area are selling them as fast as they can get them unpacked from the shipping crate.

A friend of mine works at S&W making the things, and he can't even get one!

So I guess you will just have to be a little patient - you'll get it sooner or later!
