    S&W 642 Airweight

    My local gun store had these on sale for $350 dollars so I had to get one. It is my concealed carry for the summer months replacing my Keltec P32 pistol... Thought you might enjoy- it shoots really nice too !!

    @CubanChurchill...........Congrats! You not only pleased us, you also spoiled us, lolz!

    Unfortunately, we rarely see new S/W's over here. Excellent item, specified for +p rated .38 specials.

    May I ask you, how much is the DA trigger pull, in pounds, if you know.

    Thanks for the kind remarks gentlemen.. The trigger breaks around 10 lbs which is normal for a DAO revolver. The recoil isn't bad in my opinion but at a weight of 15 oz- when Shooting my defensive rounds of 130 gr + P ammo- the small revolver does get a bit a bit snappy when fired. But it's nothing that's not tolerable. Accuracy was great. The pistol was made for shooting at 7-10 yard range for defense. At this range all shots fired were center mass. Even when firing double taps it still performed very well. At 20-25 yards my groups opened a bit with only 1 flyer and that was right on the edge of the of the intended target. In the summer months it gets very hot where I live and I wear cargo shorts and t-shirts for my daily wear. It's hard to conceal my Glocks or 1911 pistols in this kind of dress. The little keltec I have is a great little pistol- but I wanted something with a bit more punch than the keltec while still being able to conceal it no matter what I wear. I carry my new S&W appendix carry and it hides under the thinest of t-shirts with no printing what so ever. I carry a HKS speed loader for my extra rounds just in case it was ever needed. I will be buying some custom grips soon and will post pics for you guys when I get them. Thanks again guys and please be safe out there- the world is getting very crazy around us....
