    New Summer Carry Gun

    Recently I've been running into problems with my Walther PPK (the SW not the German manufactured), even after the recall I've been having a lot of FTF (faulty firing pin, was replaced and 500 rounds later problem began again) and a handful of jams. I don't want to make it sound like this gun was plagued with problems, but I didn't have the peace of mind I like to have with my carry guns (being 100% dependable) so the XD .45 has been in rotation consistently for the past month or so and now with warmer weather it's becoming a little uncomfortable and awkward to carry. So long story short I was able to trade my Walther in for this beauty, Smith and Wesson model 640 .357, have yet to take it to the range but I am in love with this gun so far, this is my first "wheel gun" or revolver and couldn't be more excited or happy with it. I felt like I came out on top with this one.

    Very nice. Now get yourself over to the Superduper Snubbie Thread and post your picture there...

    LOL.

    In comparison, that would elevate Glock to an extremely thin carry Piece.
