Sooooooo I went to the gun store/range today and couldn't hold off any longer. Picked up an S&W 642 and a box of CorBon +P 110 gr. DPX for when it counts. After putting about 50 rounds through it, a few of them the +P's, I will definitely be investing in some Hogue rap-around grips to make this thing a little more fun to shoot. The recoil wasn't painful, but my hand had a little bit of a shake to it after I was finished--not much, but enough to affect my aiming ability with my xd when I was shooting at longer distances. But I LOVE this little gun, and I've already got an RBKA pocket holster on order . Anyway, here she is...
And a family photo
Haha, I love how the ammo is arranged. I always forget what +P means.
I love that gun as well and am always thinking about getting one. Will probably be my next purchase; that, or a .45 of some kind.
It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
+P = High Pressure Loads...
Nice Snubbie! Try firing .357 loads from a gun that small...makes .38 +P nice and comfy
If you own a handgun and your state law allows it, please carry.
i like to ENJOY shooting my guns lol. and with the ballistics of the DPX, the .357 would only be a minor improvement.
And i just tracked down some hogue grips on ebay and they should be here in the next couple of days. Now to go order a couple of speed strips and figure out what i want to use to add some color to the front sight.
Dry Fire it a bit. The trigger will get a little smoother.
Nice gun. Congrats. Enjoy it.

Mrhutch congrats on the snubbie, they are indeed fun. On my front sight I used some red brake caliper paint (which is a form of heat resistant ceramic coat) it works very well.
Congrats, nice BUG.
I purchased a S&W .357 magnum with a three inch barrel. Now I wish I had gone the route you have.
There is a used Sig Sauer P229 at the local sporting goods store...
EDIT: Hogue grips are all they're cracked up to be! Also, I understand the heavier the bullet, the more the damage, love HP's.
NIce choice for a snubnose...great for CCW.

Very nice choice, congratulations!
Welcome to the brotherhood of snubby carriers! I pocket carry a 642 when I have to be tucked in.

Congratulations, you would be hard pressed to find a better .38 snubby IMHO.
God bless our troops!
