I was just wondering if anyone here EDC's a S&W with the IL? I ask as it seems there are awful lot of J-frame carriers here and on other forums with a 642/442 as their EDC.
It seems the vast majority of these guns have the IL.,same for the 340M&P users over at the high road and here at DC as well. Just for the record this is not another internal lock thread,I'm just wanting opinions from my fellow J-frame users here.
I myself have owned 2 340M&P's a 637,I EDC a 340PD with lasergrips and have an IL 640-3 on layaway that's been worked over by gemini customs.
I have a friend who is a LEO here in FL and his back up/off duty gun is a 340M&P with laser grips. He says he's had 100's of round through it mostly hot magnums loads with out issues. I figure he is a lot more likely to have to shoot someone than I am and he loves that M&P340.
It seems to me the vast majority of J-frame users have IL guns and they don't seem worried at all about the lock. I have a gun smith friend who has offered to disable the locks,but I've elected not to thus far due to liability concerns and the fact I've never had any issues out of them. I trust my 340PD or I wouldn't be carrying it to protect myself. So what do you guys here say? Thanks for any input and please let's keep it civil and with in the rules of DC.
