Here are som pics of my Colt Cobra wearing its Siles skip checkered wood grips,I carry it in a Galco concealable or Galco pocket holster its loaded with speer gold dot 135gr +p short barrel ammo.

I took the 642 our for some practice yesterday. I put 100 rounds of Speer Lawman 135gr fmj downrange yesterday, followed by 20 rounds of my preferred carry ammo (Gold Dot 135gr +p). I started very simply-- dumping all 5 rounds into COM at both 3 and 7 yards as quickly as I could pull the trigger (front sight and GO). I later moved to double taps to COM, reassess, and one to the head on a B-27 sillouhette target at the same ranges just to change things up a bit. Repeated both drills with the Gold Dot +p. I didn't really notice too much of a difference in recoil with the Gold Dot's from the Lawman fmj range ammo.
COM drill results--3" grouping at 3 yards, 5-7" groupings at 7 yards (again, as fast as I could pull the trigger to dump rounds into the threat). Very pleased with the results. Other drill, the 2 COM shots same result at same distances. Head shots most of the time. More practice on that one... I also ran 100 rds through an XD40 (same drills, but limiting to 5 COM at a time with the normal great results), and 50 rds each through my fathers Sig P238 and 80+ yr old Colt 1908 pocket hammerless in .380. I found I was more accurate with the 642 than the P238 (but that's a sweet little pistol) and the Colt 1908 (VERY minimal sights, but what a great shooter with a great history--it was my Grandfathers gun issued by the US Postal Service when he flew the mail in the 1920's).
It took a while to become confident in my accuracy from this little snubbie, but over the last 6 months, I feel very proficient using it. I've never felt undergunned, but knew I needed to become more accurate. I feel I'm there now, and just need to keep practicing, practicing, practicing. I did all my snubbie reloads from speed-strips as well. The Lawman 135gr fmj shoots to the same point of aim as the Gold Dot's with similar recoil. It is now my new practice ammo.
Happy Thanksgiving evereyone. Cheers!

JOIN THE NRA AND DO IT TODAY!!
This Model 60 in .38 came into the shop today and I just couldn't pass it up for $325 including tax and TICS. It's a hair rough, just like me. For me, that's better than a really nice one because I'm hard on stuff. I got a DeSantis Nemesis to go with it. Those are 110gr HydraShok rounds. I'm about to go shoot it. I've finally joined the snubbie club.
The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

It doesn't really look rough to me, only businesslike. Are you going to give us a report after you shoot it?
No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.
