    Happy but broke (again)

    After buying my DW Guardian, I shouldn't have gone to help my friend out at the gun show. Everything was fine until I took a break and wandered around a little. I've been thinking I wouldn't mind having a different gun to add to the rotation of BUGs. Or rather, to create a rotation. I've been carrying a Colt Mustang for quite a while to back up a 1911 of some variety. But I've really been hankering for a small revolver. Until today, that is.

    I found a good deal on a NIB S&W 642-1 without the Hillary Hole. So, I grabbed it. I've already shot it this afternoon and I have to admit the Colt is more accurate out about 25 yards but this one shines up close. When I walked up to the ten yard range, I couldn't miss.

    Anyway, nothing to get real excited about but here it is.

    That one looks nice and hope it fills your wants. I had one and sold it as I have a Colt Cobra, Detective Special, 36-8, and 37 that are all happy with the rotation schedule.

    The reason I went with a 642 is to be able to pocket carry. I also have a model 36 but the trigger is the problem.

    I keep a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!

    Only gun I have that will fit in my pocket is my derringer. Maybe I should look for a pocket wheelgun myself.

    I do pocket carry in jeans and no issues but also the pocket holster does keep upright.

    I pocket carry a 638 all the time. When J frames went on sale at the LGS recently I added a model 442 with the reasoning that I would have a good back up in case the 638 breaks

    That is the first revolver I ever bought. And the most carried. You're gonna love it. Very comfortable appendix carry.
