Well, I came across a used S&W 640 that looked like it never left the box for a good price and so I had to get it. Got a crossbreed holster for it, and headed out to the range. First thing I noticed after shooting a cylinder of +p ammo through it? There is SO much less recoil than the airweights I have shot. It didn't soak up quite as much recoil as the Ruger SP101, but it still was easy enough that I might consider carrying .357 (not sure yet though). Shoots around 3" high at 8-9 yards, and my groups were nowhere near what I shoot with my Kimber Ultra Carry, but I could still put all 5 rounds inside a grapefruit sized target and that pretty solid considering thats my second time ever shooting a revolver. That said, it conceals much more comfortably than my 1911 since I don't have that sharp corner stabbing me in the side. I have a night sight on the way to replace that front ramp, and I am considering having a smith do a trigger job on it. The guy at the shop I talked to said a lot of times they won't drop the trigger weight since it is a carry gun and that is the main safety features. I also was reading about the trigger return being a little more sluggish with the reduced power springs. Am I better off just having the smith do some smoothing of the internals in general and leaving the stock springs on it?
