I have been wanting a new j-frame for a while and saw a deal on a 642 on gunbroker the other night......dropped the hammer on it. $350.00 with a $50.00 rebate from Smith and Wesson.
Merry Christmas to me!
I have had a Model 49 for years and it has served well, but I have just been wanting a 642 lately.
Now I have to buy another set of Crimson grips.....oh, it never ends.
Can't wait for it to get here....I want to fondle it...and shoot it.....and carry it.
