    Picked up a 642 S&W Today!!!

    I went shopping for a used S&W 642 today....I wound up buying a brand new one for very little over what most people are asking for used ones! I guess Rugers LCR has forced S&W to lower their prices. Now Im just waiting on my holsters to arrive so I can put it in the carry rotation. Robbie

    Nice snubby. It'll go anywhere on you, and anywhere you want to go.

    Very versatile little carry piece. Commit to practicing with a couple hundred rounds and you'll be surprised at the acuracy you can develop with it. Give yourself time to get used to it and you'll LOVE it.

    Thanks guys...I have been wanting one bad for a while now... before you buy a used one check out new ones...I bought this one for $400 out the door!!!! I couldnt believe it. Smith has really dropped their pricing. I already have a pocket holster and a owb holster on the way.. I have been carrying an LCP...but when I travel around the border areas...I wanted something with a little more oomph...

    Had one but I let it go. I opted for the heavier 640 simply because I like to customize it to suit my taste. Some days' I think I may have saved a bundle by simply buying a Wilson-Combat and called it done!

    Congrats on the purchase. I carry a 642 in the summer when I'm wearing cargo shorts and in cargo pants when wearing a T-shirt. Love the little gun! When it is cooler and I'm wearing more clothes, I carry a full size 1911, but you can't beat the 642 when you are "stripped down".

    Thats why I want it....I have to be ultra discreet when I carry...that is what I like about these lil revolvers...they are easy to hide.
