    S&W 649 owners need advice please

    I'm needing feedback from those here who own a s&w 649. I was wondering if anyone pocket carries these guns? I was also wondering if I should let the lock stop me from getting this gun if I otherwise like it?,thanks.

    Get the lock deactivated, or wait a bit. S&W made a trial run of non-lock J frames, and they should be "reorienting production" assuming they sell well.

    The S&W forum has a running thread on locks locking up guns during a course of fire.

    We have two of them, have never had a problem with the lock (don't use it) - have had them about 4 years. My wife often carries one in her back pocket.
    I guess if the lock were a problem, it could be removed? I remember reading that someplace, probably someone here will post details.

    OP asked:

    No, do not let it stop you. No way. The all-steel J-frame .357s are fantastic guns. I feel quite confident that, if you buy the 649/640/60, it will become one of your favorite firearms.

    I don't have any personal experience with the 649 itself, but I've had two 640-3s for a while and they have been first-rate.
