As I said, the plan was a S&W 642 unless an awesome deal on something else (Read: Kickass Deal on a gently used 3″ or less K-frame) came up, and even then, I was kinda eh, I wanted a small, light .38 or .357 that I can throw in a pocket and go, and the 642 is about perfect for that purpose. The shop had an old .32 S&W that was beautiful, but I really would have a hard time carrying and beating on such a lovely gun, I’m not going to feel bad beating a 642, plus the internal hammer on the 642 is going to draw much nicer, no snagging.
Is going to…does.
Yep, got the 642, as I said I probably would. Right, pics,
S&W 642 with my SOG Twitch II, which I really like, but I really fucking need to sharpen. The grips are different, but I kinda like’em, they’re wood, so they don’t tend to stick to the fabric of your pocket, and the gator skin looking pattern tends to give it a nice grip in your hand. I’m gonna get a Nemesis holster for pocket carry (unless someone has a better suggestion), since that seems to be the one most people like, and I’m gonna pick up some 5-Star Speedloaders (they are Moronblogger Approved! after all) and Bianchi Speed Strips.
As you can see, smallish, said smallness amplified by my big fat hamhands.
I’ll post a side by side with my 6″ 686P when WordPress decides it wants to download the pic,
And Veeshir sends along this pic of additional ammo he ordered on BAG Day, I may be watching clips from Zulu right now…may.
Anyone else got a BAG Day purchase?
