    Congrats with your 442!
    Will be joining the club soon with the purchase of a 642. Looking forward to being able to just stick it in my pocket and run down to the corner grocery store. These guns are quality, and like has been said, everyone needs at least (1) revolver.

You can get a used one (good condition) for between $300 and $340.

    Good luck and good hunting!

    Great choice. My 442 rides in a Kramer pocket due to my affinity for leather holsters. It was going to be my carry a lot shoot a little gun but I just can't stop shooting the snot out of it.

    For my next snub, I think I may try to find a pre lock 342PD.

    Getting to know each other

    So I took my new addition to the range today to see if we were going to make good dance partners ... I'll say this: we need some practice.

    Anyone who has gotten completely and totally used to a glock trigger (or God forbid, a pure SAO trigger) will find that the DAO trigger pull on a revolver is, how shall I put this, different. And fixed sights on a 2" barrel - yep, God has a sense a humor and this afternoon started off as a laugh-fest. The first 10 shots were laugh out loud funny. I took a deep breath, re-focused, and adjusted my front sight post picture. My last 20 shots (of 50) at 21 feet were within a 5" circle. Isn't there a saying about stickin' with things in life?

    I'm a glutton for punishment, but I can't wait to get back to the range for round 2. I'm taking 100 rounds with me next time. I may also require band-aids en route to new callouses. Those little snubs can work your hands over after a while. It's funny. I usually go to the range and put 150 - 200 rounds through my glock and not blink - all tight groups, no drama. A pure defensive revolver that DISAPPEARS into your pocket and will always go bang when you want it to will bring some additional drama into your life. As far as I'm concerned it's worth every minute. I love this gun.

    After some practice, I am close to a 7" circle at 25 yards. I was surprised to find that I am more accurate with my snub than my sub G27. My 442 has redefined my marksmanship principles and has made me inherently more accurate with my Glocks.

    The only thing that changed for me for my snubs trigger control is that I lay my trigger finger phalange right on the trigger.

    Glad it's working out for you.
