    I think that the humpbacks have it all over DAO. You may not ever need the SA option, but if you ever do need it...you need it. It's better to have and not need than to need and not have.

    That's what I think.
    The keys to winning a gunfight are first to bring a gun and secondly to take your time, quickly.

    Always remember that if your opponent is within range, so are you.

    Another "Humpback"

    Here's another 638 but one that's got some miles, some in Kydex and some in a pocket holster. She ain't as pretty as she once was but then neither am I.

    This one has also about 700 rounds through it and those are Altamonte grips.

    That's a Jet Loader next to it, my favorite so far.

    The background speaks for itself.......

    I've been carrying my 638 every day since I bought it in December. I love snubbies (and I have a real desire to get a 642 as well), but I really have a special affinity for the bodyguard frames. I just wish there were more different bodyguard types offered. S&W offers two types and the Taurus ones just don't look right--and I'm not bashing Taurus here.

    Oh--I wish S&W would make the stupid locks optional like they do on the M&P. I guess that's another subject entirely.

    I,ve owned and carried many bodyguards over the years,mostly as backups. It's always been one of my favorites in that role.Snagless,and as Mainspring said,gives you that single action option if you ever need it.
    One of S&W's best revolvers ever ,IMO.

    I like the bodyguards too. I like the SA capability & they're a tad lighter than the centennial models. However, my 442 has taken care of me for the last 13 yrs as a back-up &, at times, as a primary.

    When the SHTF, I'm not so sure I'd have the presence of mind to even consider cocking the hammer back.

    I don't like the thought of de-cocking a shrouded hammer snub when my hands are possibly injured, sweaty, or covered in blood, brain matter, or guts...and I don't see much need for SA anyhow.

    SIXTO, why is a full barrel underlug important to you?
