    Thought I'd share a picture of my brand NIB favorite CCW =)

    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 before... no kidding.




    It feels GREAT in my pocket Desantis Nemesis holster! The perfect weight. It feels solid but not too heavy. This has instantly become my favorite CCW!

    What is the best ammunition for SD? Right now I have 130 grain Federal Hydra-Shok .357 magnums...

    Nice looking gun. S&W is the tops when it comes to revolvers IMHO. Congrats.

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

    Nice gun

    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:

    Try to reload the page. It took a while for my browser to display it as well.


    Hmmmm.
    That's a beauty! Maybe it's time to consider a wheelgun as my CCW...

    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.

    Congrats!!

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