Although I have several SA, including 1911 compacts, Kahr P9, and a G26 I seem to pick up my 642 more often than any of them. I must admit I carry the KT P3AT most often.
I also have a M 640 .357 and a M 60 3" .357. The M 60 has excellent sights, and is not much harder to conceal than the M640. If the shot had to be taken at 25 or more yards, the M 60 might be the most accurate, and fast to get on target with its adj and large sights.
I am glad I do not have to choose which to keep and which to sell. All fit a need and I would hate to give any up. I think I would keep the M 642 if I had to keep only one revolver.
Everyone needs a snubby, and I think a light weight one which spells something like a .38 Spl M 642 or similar. I like to carry the lightest gun I think will do the job.
This my snubby. It is a 1965 model Colt Detective special. I often carry it, especially in hot weather when a larger gun is more difficult to conceal.
I'll be getting my snubbie next week-Whoo Hoo. I've been coveting little "Smithy" for 36 years and it will soon be mine!
Yup Dad has finally agreed to sell it to me.
Smith & Wesson Model 36 Chief Special nickel plated 650 rounds on it since 1972, complete with 3 holsters, ammo, original wood grips, aftermarket rubber grips and the currently installed CT grips!!!
Guns are like potato chips, ya can't have just one
