    Just bought a 642

    Local hunting store ran a special on S&W's. Got a 642 for $299.99. It seems to be well liked among wheel gun people. I should be able to get some shots off this weekend. BTW...it's a no-lock model.

    That is one heck of a deal on a no-lock 642.

    It really is hard to go wrong by adding a j-frame to a carry collection. They have limitations, but sometimes it is just the perfect gun for an occasion.

    Good deal. I would slap some Hogue or Pachymar rubber boot grips on it and you will love shooting it. Go with the stock grips and you will be dealing with recoil directly on the frame's spine. It won't hurt you, but you will find it more pleasant to shoot with the boot grips.

    Thats one heck of a deal! And I thought mine for $315 was a steal.....
    I love the 642. I had one, carried it in my pocket everywhere. Got rid of it for some funds for my AR15. Missed it and came across a good deal for one. Should get it either Monday or Tuesday.

    Great versatile carry piece and an unbelievable price. When I bought my 442 is was right at 500. Great pocket gun, ankle, IWB, OWB, jacket pocket, lounging around the house. When you have one of those, there's no reason to not be carrying (unless it is a legality issue where you are). Snubs are a little different to shoot, but several boxes of ammo and you'll be fine. Congrats.

    I have to warn you though....you can't have just ONE snub. I now have 4 and am aware of about 4 more I want.
