This is a discussion on Thought I'd share a picture of my brand NIB favorite CCW =) within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; WOOHOO, I just brought home my NIB S&W 640 Pre-Lock!
The trigger pull is SO SWEET, better than any S&W I've ever shot or held ...

Very, very, nice. Keep us posted (no pun intended) on how you like it over the next couple months. Got me looking!

Nice piece. I got to handle one at my CCW class this last week. They are indeed nice guns.

Congratulations on your good choice in a CCW revolver.
You asked about ammunition for self defense. I think that a number of good ammo products for a .357 snubby are available. I did some research when I was picking ammo for my S&W model 66 snubby, and wound up buying the Remington 125 grain Golden Saber. From a 4 inch barrel it has muzzle velocity of 1220 fps and energy of 413 ft-lbs. I found some gelatin penetration and expansion data for this and it looked pretty good. There are certainly hotter .357 loads available, but for a gun as small as the model 640 I think you want something moderate for keeping the recoil reasonable.
Here is a good article by Stephen Camp on the subject of .357 magnum ammo selection:

Every time a member posts about their new S&W J-frame, I always tell myself that I need to get myself a nice J-frame.

A fine choice. Even with those grips, it draws smooth out of your pocket?

Real nice. Congrats! And a good trigger is so important.
