    New Member 642 Club (Super Tuned)

    Hi Guys (and Gals)
    I have owned Glocks and Sigs for a while and always wanted a J-Frame Smith & Wesson to add to the collection. Now that summer is upon us, I figured there is no better time than the present! I really love the fit and finish of this one. It just exudes quality and I am very impressed. It also came with the Performance Center Super Tuned trigger action, so I also posted a pic of the included documentation on that to share with the group. This trigger is SMOOTH.

    So, what are the best ideas that you guys have discovered for both pocket holsters as well as IWB for my new 642?

    Nice choice, mine needs a super tune. Mika makes a very good pocket holster and it want break the bank. I use a VM11 for IWB carry.

    Very Nice. I love mine. It's a very versatile gun. 2 cylinders snake killer(copperhead) and 3 gold dots when I am home. And when I out with it 5 gold dots and in a cheap uncle mikes. I have a nice Dan Wesson leather IWB rig I wear sometimes, but mostly pocket carry with speed strip in other pocket. My only real suggestion is to look for the offset belt hooks(snaps) or the offset belt clip. If you have the standard belt clip it will be side by side with cylinder making the overall rig thicker.

    That's money well spent on the tuned action.

    I have Mika and Desantis pocket holsters and can't say that either of them do a lot for me. Pocket carrying a J-frame isn't that great for me. I'm always looking at new pocket holsters and there are some really nice ones out there.

    As far as IWB, Comp-Tac is my favorite holster maker at this point. I have a Don Hume S.O.O.T. that is good for a cheap rig, but not my favorite holster. I have gotten pretty fond of appendix carry with carrying a snubby. Very concealable.

    Very nice revolver!! The only pocket holsters I own are Mika's and I really like them (made for my snubby).

    My two cents...

    Nice gun. I find myself carrying my S&W 5 shot more and more (FL, and it's hotter than.....down here right now). Post some more pictures as you get holsters in, right now I'm just carrying in a cheapy fabric holster - hey, it works.

    A .38 Special Ammo Question

    I have been looking around for some .38 special practice ammo online and noticed that some of the target ammo has lead (non-jacketed) projectiles. I know that in my Glock I am only supposed to run full metal jacket (or jacketed hollow points). In my new J-Frame revolver it is OK to run plain old lead target ammo, correct? (Just out of curiosity can someone explain to me why that is?)

    Having no experience with Glocks, I think it's because Glock barrels have polygonal rifling that won't stabilize lead bullets.

    Your J frame revolver barrel has conventional land and groove rifling which will stabilize either lead or jacketed bullets.

    Hope this helps.

    The tuned action certainly makes a difference. I had mine done by the local GS where I purchased my 638. Before the tuning the trigger was a bit gritty, but now its quite smooth. All j-frames could benefit from that type of work. I like my Desantis Nemesis pocket holster, but a really nice way to carry is in a ConcealmentT tee shirt. The gun is held very securely under your off-arm and is unnoticeable under a shirt. The guy has a web site here

    Have carried a S&W 442 for some time (cousin to the 642) and use an Uncle Mikes pocke holster which works just fine.

    "hey bro, does your gun have a trigger job" I hate when I hear people ask these questions, they don't even know what a trigger job is.

    oh, nice gun by the way. Does it have a trigger job? j/k
