After some hard thinking on that slide lock problem with my Kimber Ultra CarryII I decided that it was going to take a lot of shooting before I trusted it completly. Sooo... I headed for my favorite gunstore and purchased a S&W Airweight 642-2, 38 spl, +P. I also got a speedloader (just in case) I took it to the range yesterday, pulled the trigger and it went BANG! No muss, no fuss, just BANG! I figure that that is important in a carry gun I haven't given up on the Kimber but...............!!

service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the
love and thanks of man and woman."

Gotta love those snubbies. Between the .45 and .38spl I'd say you're about ready for anything.
