    I picked up a S&W 642 with Crimson trace sight at the Charlotte gun show two weeks ago. My first snubby. Shot 50 rounds of .38 spl and 2 wheels worth of 125 gr. Gold Dot +P. I was very happy with how it shoots - accurate.

    I've been carrying it in a leather pocket holster loaded with the Gold Dots. I'm going to pick up a couple of Speed/Quick Strips to go with it.

    My Wife's New Best Friend:

    It has been interesting to watch my wife learn and grow into a gun enthusiast. Late last fall I posted here about her first firearm, a pink and nickel Walther P22. This was all the gun she wanted to handle at the time, but that soon changed. She decided this last January to move up to a Bersa 380CC to compliment her newly acquired LTCH. Now, here we are a few short months later and she decided that she needs more stopping power. (Don't you just love to see it when people "get it".)

    This past Friday, my wife and headed to Granger Guns to let her handle just about every small firearm in the store. She went into the store thinking that she wanted a new M&P9c, but after much deliberation she decided on the new Ruger LCR revolver. (I was so proud.) Why did she choose the Ruger LCR? It is lightweight, powerful, concealable and most of all dependable. In short, she chose it for all the right reasons. I love my wife!

    The first trip to the range came on Saturday morning. My wife was astonished at the increased recoil over her Bersa 380, but she felt that it was quite manageable. Of the three people who shot her new LCR, my wife was by far the most accurate with it. She really mastered the DAO trigger staging needed to accurately shoot a snubby revolver. Something my buddy and I just could not seem to do with the little time she allowed us on the LCR.



    The long and the short of it is she loves the new LCR and already feels that she is better protected by carrying it.

    My interest in snubbies began on Rollo's thread about .38 vs .357. It ended on this thread. The Superduper Snubbie Thread must be bumped, so here is the snubbie that I think I want.

    I usually carry my 3" barreled CA "Bulldog in .44 S&W Special. This well made revolver (1991 vintage) will "stop the action" when called upon.

    I occasionally will slip my CA "Undercoverette" in .32 H&R Magnum into my back pocket when stepping outside at night.

The 340 will take it all ----- and isn't that bad with .357 loads.
    I think M&P 340 was worth every penny as well. I got it for 650.00 & tax used. It wasn't a scratch or wear mark on it anywhere. The sales person at the gunshop said an ole man bought it and didn't like the recoil. He traded it in on something else. I love this thing.

    Guy's, dont get me wrong, the 340 is an excellent choice and I'd love to own one. Just for my purpose and use of a snub, its a bit spendy. A 442 or 642 suits me fine for a lot less.

    i understand where you are coming from Sixto. I "just wanted one", I found a deal considerably less expensive than the retail every where else and jumped on it. For the average snubbie carrier the 442/642 is more than adequate, and a fine CCW weapon.
