    My new 442..yah baby!!

    Hello folks! hope everybody is doing fine today, as for me well i'm quite happy, just got this new 442 earlier today, i had a ruger LCR w/ct grips on layaway but i still owe like 240 , so went to the shop and checked out if they have any thing new and wala! they just got a shippment of SW so I decided to just go with these 442 instead of the LCR, just added 50 bucks out the door, so here it is..man this thing is so nice to carry, very light..

    'Smokin. I carried my 637 SOB today and just about forgot that it was there. These are great 'quick conceal' and pocket rockets.

    I thought Oldsmobile quit making 442s?

    Nice piece. Fired it yet? Better grab hold tightly!

    congrats! I have a 642 I love and carry from time to time. My wife carries it with her all the time. I trust that gun to protect my wife and child so that says a lot....

    Congrats!! I hope you enjoy your 442 as much as I have mine. Take it shooting ASAP and let us know what you think. Snubs take lots of practice to be proficient.

    Congrats on the new 442... Consider a Mika pocket holster. He makes both round and square bottom models to fit your pockets...

    Congrats on the new piece, what a beautiful firearm. I am curious why you decided to to spring for the 442 over the LCR. a 442 or LCR is going to be my next purchase. I need a quick sto-and-go.

    I have owned both before and the shop i was dealing before has the LCR w/ the ct grips, I did place the LCR on layaway until i saw this one, the price on the lcr was 590 w/ the ct grips, this one was 440,since i inly have to shell out 50 bucks instead of 200+tax i went with the 442, i know the LCR is an excellent revolver too but they don't have the plain jane version..
