    Bought a BUG today

    Picked up a S&W 642 to use as a pocket carry/BUG. Sorry, no pictures as most all of you know what they look like.

    I was also able to pick up 150 rounds of 357 mag practice ammo, 250 rounds of 357Sig frangible rounds for target practice, and picked up 50 rounds of Speer +P GD's for the 642.

    I need to stay out of the gun stores for a while.

    I've ordered a Galco front pocket horsehide holster for it.

    Nice! The right size for a BUG. And you really scored with the ammo. Have fun with it.

    I love new gun days. Feels like Christmas. I think I could spend a million bucks if I had it. Ive got a S&W 637. LOVE IT. My pants are small for pocket carry so I carry IWB in a C-Tac, works great.
