With decades of reliable performance to its credit, Smith & Wesson’s 642 J-Frame remains among the best and most popular small-frame revolvers on the market.
Gonna keep it short and sweet. Get one if you can. This is one sweet revolver. I am currently carrying mine as backup / ankle gun with a bugbite ankle holster highly recommended FYI to compliment my department issued M&P 2.0 9mm. Fits snugly and pretty much disappears on your person. I keep this by my wallet and phone, and when i just wanna roll out quickly. It fits right in any pocket and you forget it's there. I do recommend some sort of pocket holster simply for safety purposes. I also bought the silver 642 model for my 65 year old mother who lives alone and needs something for EDC and home defense. My mom wanted something to carry but she is afraid to carry with one in the pipe w /o a safety. Plus I was scared she would actually remember to rack the slide when / if it came time to rumble !! She felt comfortable with this setup immediately. She's gonna carry it in a cheap little Walmart makeup bag in her purse. If you're looking for something for the woman in your life that she wont be intimated to carry EDC, this is the one !! No slide to rack or magazine to load. Just drop and go easy breezy. Hard to mess it up. This thing is Ready to roll right out of the box, super easy to setup for first time EDC user or experienced gun enthusiast. Loaded up with Hornady Critical Duty .38 special and we are in business. People knock the whole 5 shots thing , but most gun fights are 2-4 rounds. I trust my life with it as a current LEO if / when it comes time to go to the ankle on or off duty.
What can you say? it's a S&W revolver, so of course the product is great. What is unexpected is to buy it for nearly $100 less than I can find it anywhere else! Shipping was delayed by a couple of days due to high volume of orders, but I'll wait 2 days to save 100 any time. Great price, good service. Will definitely buy here again.
Best price I've seen for this handgun. Very solid build and excellent fit and finish. This was my first revolver and the first outing with it I was hitting bulls eyes at 7 yards with moderate concentration. So this gun is plenty accurate as long as you do your part. The trigger is smooth the whole way through and will only get smoother the more you fire it. It is a great pocket carry gun. Super light.
Best price, great product, Vert quick shipping. And they keep you updated via email. I'll buy all my firearms from the outdoor super store
