I am strongly considering buying one of these. Anyone have any comments positive or negative about these? The deal seems too good to pass up. It is on sale at Cabelas for $379 (normally $449). And from Oct. 18-28 they are having club card days again. With this event, I can take another $85 off a $400 purchase. So if I buy the gun and $20 worth of other stuff--which won't be too hard--I can take $85 off the gun for a net price of $295.
The MSRP--which I realize no one usually pays--is $529. Best price I can find anywhere is $379. So I think I am crazy to pass up a new 442 for $295.
I have SIG 229 and some Glocks and H&Ks for OWB carry. I don't own any S&W yet. Seems like I should do this.
Due to arthritis issues, I do not care for a lot of recoil--sold a Ruger Super Redhawk .44 mag due to this. Am thinking about .38+P for pocket carry with the 442. What is your opinion of the recoil of the 442 with +P?
Thanks for any comments left!
