    Still a newbie

    As a new carry guy (6 months)

    I have a .380 , .32 , and a 442.

    My liveing agrangements have changed also going from a house

    to an apartment .I really like carrying my 442 the best so far

    I now must walk my 4lb ball of fluff 2 year old dog on a leash daily

    Instead of just putting her in fenced back yard .

    I an going threw a real rough time ( divorce ) this is all very new

    stuff for me not haveing a house the apartment is not in the

    best of hoods ,I do not go outside with out one in my pocket.

    I just feel safer with the 442. O h and the 380, and 32 are Kel Techs.

    They have been flawless also .Sorry about the rant

    That's unfortunate, but at least you are still armed. Stay strong things will get better.

    Bummer. I've gone to great lengths to avoid the d-word thus far. Having almost been there many times, I understand the agony that you're going through.

    Hang tough & stay safe.

    Your 442 is a great option in my view. Just practice when you can and look into a range gun when possible.

    Sorry about your current situation, but things will improve. As far as your carrying situation, The 442/642 are the gold standard, against which other snubbie's are measured. You have a very fine defensive handgun, so I wouldn't worry about that right now. Practice with reloads with a speed strip and a speedloader and you'll be good to go...

    Just do your best to not to anything to upset the ex-wife. I dumped the clutch and left some tire tread outside of my ex-wife's house after she told me she wanted a divorce. I was very upset and it just happened. I made no threats against her but two days later I was served with a protection order for my local PD and the judge upheld it for six months.

    I didn't own any firearms at that time and the protection order did not prevent me from having them but if I had who knows what might have happened.

    Best of luck with your divorce.
