    Took me a while to get a good photo. I wanted sunshine, and was hoping to have some nice wooden grips on her, but here's my 642. Yes, it has a lock. It's a start. Those are vintage 1985 Nyclads. The t-shirt is a memorial to the officer murdered on duty in 1999 in the town where I am a firefighter.

    I bought the M642 when I saw that they were being produced without the lock!

    These are for those rare times when I can't manage to hide one of my Glock 27's (I have yet to find a smaller trustworthy semiauto*).

    Wife prefers the pictured Federal Nyclads in the 640 and 649 for her primary carry.

    Neither of us is interested in a .357 snub!

    *...and yes, I have tried 9mm/.380 Kahrs and the Beretta Nano!...Hmmm..., maybe a Seecamp .380 someday?
    Nice picture. Sadly, the Nyclads have been discontinued. They were my favorite load for a revolver.

    Nylon coated bullets have gone out of style, it seems. Hornady seems to be doing a good job of filling the style gap with it's rubber tipped bullets though.

    Ah yes, there it is. I thought I'd heard about Nyclads being re-introduced.

    My 1985 box says $15.95. For 50.

    The status says discontinued by manufacturer.

    No offense, but $1/round is not unusual for modern defensive ammo. For my 9mm I would stick with something running around $1 a round since it will take a bit of ammo to make sure it is reliable, but if I were carrying a snubbie I would have no problem paying more since it isn't going to take more than a cylinder or two to make sure it works right and is accurate.

    My life is worth more than cheap carry ammo.

    The Nyclad was re-introduced a couple of years ago after a long abscense. Federal has since pulled them from the market. The Midway link notes that the manufacturer has discontinued the product. Try adding to cart, and the cart indicates the product is not available, but discontinued.

    As of last week the local police supplier was still stocking Federal Nyclads (in 50-round white boxes), and was not restricting sale to LEO's.

    Today I picked up a few more boxes of Federal Nyclad and was informed by that same cop-shop manager that it is still available. He has to order a minimum of one pallet at a time. I didn't ask how many cases were on a pallet, but he seems to have no trouble selling them at $21.99/50-round box. I haven't seen it at any of the other local gun shops, though.

    I am not complaining about the price. Never cheat your stomach, or your revolver.

    The last time I checked the Federal Nyclad are still available at my LGS, I will probably stock up, just in case. I was lucky enough to come by a handful of the original 158 grain Nyclad rounds and do carry them in my 642.

    Put some new grips on my LCR carry gun. Just in case anyone is wondering what the LCR looks like with the wood Eagle Grips on it. Here you go.

    Beautiful! It may sound odd, but those grips really set off that gun nicely.

    Cory, I didn't think you were complaining at all, it looked more like the poster above you was.

    I'm jealous of those saying they can still get Nyclads. I haven't seen any around here at any point, but I do remember shooting some up that my grandfather had back when I didn't know the difference between FMJ and JHP, and he just said shoot whatever is in the ammo can.

    Thanks, I do carry it from time to time in a Don Hume 721.

    It's too bad Colt stopped production of their snubbies. What a pleasure to shoot. Locks up like a bank vault and runs like a swiss clock.
