    Get the S & W 642 !!!

    Get a DeSantis Nemisis (sp) pocket holster.

    You WILL love the combo.

    I carry this rig ALWAYS.

    I think everything has been said. I carry my 642 daily along with a speed strip. I love it. Easy to carry and there are a multitude of accessories available.

    You really can't go wrong with a 642 purchase. Get the Speer 135gr +P for it too.

    Enjoy it and please make sure to post again to tell all of us how happy you are with your 642.

    Smith and Wesson 642 Revolver: $399.00
    Desantis Pocket Holster: $17.95
    HKS Speed Loader: $8.95

    Being able to pocket carry comfortably: Priceless



    This is my new pocket carry set up. My budget was $450 and all of this: the 642, the HKS speedloader, and the Desantis (Nemisis) pocket holster rang in at $447.19

    Congratulations! Not a bad deal either, that's exactly what I paid for mine two years ago this month.

    I usually shoot about 50 rounds of WWB and one cylinder of carry ammo though it when I take it to the range. By then I'm ready to either call it a day or switch to another gun for the rest of my range session.

    I haven't had a chance to take it to the range yet. I REALLLY want to shoot it, but the ranges up here in Northern virginia are expensive :/ It would cost me $30+ just to go for an hour to the range near my house. $8 for monthly membership $10 range fees + $15 for ammo.

    btw I read somewhere on these boards thats its A-OK to dry fire this gun without snap caps. I sincerely hope this is the case because I have been doing it since I got it....

    Dry firing's fine, it will actually smooth the trigger pull over time too.

    I actually love the trigger pull on this gun. My aim stays surprisingly steady during the pull.

    Dry fire is a good way to practice. Going BANG is even better practice.

    Looks like you got yourself an ideal little set up, now go practice. Dry firing wont hurt it, so have at it.

    Good thing because I've been dry firing mine since I picked it up today too!



    Great little gun I was amazed at how light it is and the trigger feels great compared to my P-11. Looks like I found my new EDC!

    Congrats on your new 642 Kavity!

    My wife is 5', 120 and shoots hers like a pro. You would not want to be in front of her out to 15 yards. Like most guns, recoil is something that can be learned to deal with, you just have to invest the time. She has no issues with it, and I carry mine at times. Nice purchase. Now, practice, practice, practice.

    Sounds like the 642 is the new Kool-aid.
