    Anyone carry a S&W 649?

    I just picked up a 649-2 with the thought of making it my primary carry. It has been modified by a previous owner to DAO and has the action slicked up. The DA pull is the best I have felt on a J frame.

    No experience with them myself, but I see no reason why it would not make an excellent carry gun.

    Carried a 649-no dash everyday as second / backup / covert since 1995. I still carry it since I retired.
    Before the 649 I carried a blued 49 everyday for 20 yrs. The 49 now wears Barami grips and it's my "quick grab to run outside for a bit" gun.

    I carried one for a couple of years on & off.
    It's a fantastic little firearm in general.

    I carry one in .38 every day as a back up gun. It will shoot about 4 inches at 50 yards if I do my part. Traded a fixed blade knife even up for it a while ago and I don't think that I will ever part with it. It is a great little revolver!
