    New j frame en route

    Had a model 60, but gave it to my father. So, I ordered one I've wanted for awhile: a 649. Debated between this one and a 640, but went with a humpback. I like the capability of 357, even though 38+p is all I'd ever carry. Really wanted a SIG 938, but they have proven impossible to find. Besides, no arsenal is complete without a j frame.

    On second thought, no arsenal is ever complete at all.

    I love those humpback Bodyguard frames. Wished I'd gotten one of those instead of the Model 642.

    Good choice, but It's probably going to take awhile to get.

    I love my 442 but my wife has claimed it. My next J frame will be a 438.

    Sigh. Yeah, I know. About all that's left to be found around here are a few Glocks, XDs, and M&Ps. A sorry thing.

    Had mine for a month. Shoots beautifully for a little J-frame. Now wears one of these:

    I really like my 642. Everyone should own a J Frame. Timeless perfection.
