I am becoming more aware of events around me and am about to take a conceal carry class here in N.C. I know if I decide to get a permit the gun I choose will have to be light weight and comfortable or I will not carry it. I have an inner war deciding between the LCP and Bodyguard. The Smith has sights, safety and holds open. Three features I like. The laser I am on the fence about. I love the LCP's weight and smoothness. It's price with a side mount laser is comparable with the Smith. I have many questions about the Elsie and would appreciate some input from you folks that carry these.
