    Congrats on the pocket gun. My wife carries a 642 like yours in her purse. I pocket carry a Model 60.

    A pocket holster keeps the revolver (or pistol) in the up right position, prevents 'pocket lint' from getting in the gun, keeps the pocket from wearing out, also keeps the grips in a quick draw position. Bob

    Everything that happens is either endurable or not. If it’s endurable, then endure it. Stop complaining. If it’s unendurable . . . then stop complaining. Your destruction will mean its end as well.

    What makes the 642 trigger different for you Carl?

    Hi Carl, I'm a bit confused. If you already have a Colt Mustang.....why would you need anything else? I carry my old M-36 2" in my pocket (I 'Bobbed' the hammer), OWB holster, or IWB holster (my particular favorite), and though it is a little heavy at 20 ozs. (unloaded), other carry revolvers that I use are a M-10 2" (30 ozs.) and M-66 2 1/2" (36 ozs.). So, it is the lightest ....by far!!!!

    I, personally, think that the Mustang is about perfect for your purposes! Small, compact, and lighter than a 1911. So......you don't have to be broke! You've got it covered already! (You just wanted to spend the money.......didn't you???) Bob

    I keep a 642-1 in my front pocket in a De Santis pocket holster about 98% of the time.

    You actually forget it's there.

    Going on 16 months now, and there isn't a mark on the finish of it, but I don't keep anything else in that pocket.

    The day I bought it and put 120 rounds thru it.
