Nice carry Smith!

I pocket carried a S&W 638 for a few years after retiring from my regular job to work overnight retail. Still carry it for yard work or a long road trip where I'll be stopping at rest stops and gas stations in the wee hours.

J frames still serve a purpose, even though I usually have a larger handgun on my belt.

My criteria for a carry weapon are reliability, hand fit, accuracy, and ease of concealment and carry in that order. A j frame revolver is hard to beat in this role.

I had moved away from the small revolvers due to age and hand pain. Sold off my 637 a while ago. The recent weight loss eliminated the hand pain so I am once again with a j frame. Not a lot of fun to shoot an airweight but I like the revolvers.

Picked up a S&W 442 and will be carrying that daily. Not that I’m out and about much these days.

It's amazing what weight loss can do for your health. Many problems go away. I'm glad it worked out for you.

I EDC 7 rounds of .40S&W. The 442 easily slips in my pocket if I want to carry around the yard or other times I want convenience. It often goes camping because it is low maintenance. It goes on out of state road trips because I know it complies with laws in every state that recognizes my license.
