(5 out of 5) Smith and wesson 642
by from Muskegon, MI on

This guys is a lot smaller than I expected. This is actually perfect and exactly what I was looking for. I wasnt lucky enough to physically see one before purchasing however Im highly content with my purchase. Its my daily and I can put it in my pocket and carry it comfortably. Dont pass this pistol up as a daily carry. Its so light you hardly notice its in your pocket. The cylinder bulk worried me too but it hides surprisingly well in my cargo shorts.

by from Winter Haven, FL on

No thanks! Keys get lost.

(5 out of 5) Great, practice, warm wx carry
by from Bradenton, FL on

The J frame Smith is easy to use, but difficult to use well. This model is well suited to the rigors of daily carry. My example had a smooth trigger and yielded outstanding accuracy. I recommend this little revolver for experienced shooters looking for safe carry.

(5 out of 5) Nice addition to the collection
by from Reston, VA on

Just added this to my collection. Great gun at decent price. Only problem is slow in processing the order.

(5 out of 5) Great Carry Piece
by from Sparta, TN on

Carry this every day. Lightweight and always goes bang. Very good carry option. Best price and super fast shipping!

(5 out of 5) Awesome little gun
by from Hialeah, FL on

Great gun for self defense. Easy to tuck away. Shoots well. I would change the grip to a bigger size if you are a big hand guy. Great customer service. Keep up the great service and prices.
