    My old 642 is all beat up, but I still love her so! You can fall in love with an Airweight 38 in just a short time.

    The 642 is definately a sharp lookin' j frame. Almost as sharp lookin' as my 640 and 340PD. Just kidding, enjoy it good luck.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    I really like mine....carry it alot in the summer. It is suprisingly accurate for the barrel length and sights...as long as you get used to the strong DA trigger.
    Enjoy....they are very nice firearms.

    The 642 is a proven wheelgun and a nice partner to have along if trouble arises...nice buy!

    Very nice addition. Congrats. I've been thinking about getting a 642. So far, I like what I have read about them.

    Great looking "J" -- You'll love it!

    Hey, Snowdoctor -- you don't have to live with an excessively heavy da pull. My new 638 had a 'lawer trigger when bought last year. A new trigger return spring from Wolff was all it needed to equal the da trigger on my old (1985) mod. 49. Coupla bucks & an hours work = great trigger. Did not change the hammer/main spring.
