    Question SW 638 revolver- scored

    Got a bug up my butt to get a snub nose. Decided I wanted the SW 638. The air weight with the little stubby hammer barely sticking up. Find one on CalGuns forum. Included is leather pocket holster, spare ammo pouch, Ankle holster, Crimson trace grips, speed loader and 2 boxes of Gold Dot defense ammo.
    Have not shot yet, but glad I could find one. Anybody have one of these? Do you li,e it?

    Picked mine up off GB a couple of months ago- an almost unfired late 90's pre-lock. I am very happy with it and love the SA capability for precise shots.

    Outside the gun owner community, with that statement most folks would be wondering just how bad your life is going right now.


    Nice choice. Once you get it all shined up, post a few pics along with your favorite holster. We love pics.

    Have had a S&W 442 Airweight, myself.

    Great little revolver. Have had one for a few years now, enjoy yours.

    I wonder if that's true, in this day and time .

    The 638 is a great gun! It was my first, and still my most-carried, j-frame. Sounds like you're all set with the goodies that came with it. Enjoy!

    Like Ivan, the 638 was my first and is still my most carried. You'll find that your accuracy will get much better than expected I betcha. Hump backs are the cats backside.

    If I'm not carrying my 9mm, my 638 is what I have on my side or pocket.

    I carry its predecessor, the model 38, daily on my ankle as a backup. Great gun.

    I am a fan of the "Old Humpback," it is my j-frame of choice. It should serve you well. I replaced the grips on mine with some slightly larger wooden ones that fit my hand a bit better than the stock rubber ones, which made a big difference.

    I got one recently that I have been using as a BUG or while in the house……I even found a Bianchi upside down holster.

    I traded my LC9 for a 637-2 Airweight last Saturday. It's a lot lighter than the 9 was but looks a lot more like a gun in my pocket. I haven't fired mine yet either but still trust a revolver more than an auto. I bought the Buffalo Bore hp low velocity rounds for it, suppose to do better in short barrel guns.

    Great gun! I am hoping to get one or something similar after Christmas is all said and done. Really been wanting a good BUG for a while now. Good find
