New to the forum. Just picked up a J-frame Model 642 this week. My Sig Sauer M18 was getting lonely. :)

I've been around S&W for a while - carried a 4" 357 daily for a couple of years when I worked on an armored car as a youngster.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Thanks! I can't wait to find ammo to be able to shoot it. There isn't any 38 Special within 50 miles of me.

Good ,luck with finding ANY factory munitions. You'll need it. Me, I have a couple thousand primed cases ready to load when I get the time because I planned ahead. Those that didn't, well, sucks to be you.

Yep. It took me days to find a single box of JHP 38 Special online (none local), and I don't even want to say what I paid for it. Luckily, I have enough 9mm on hand to last me for a long time.

9mm is way too diminutive of a round for me. I do shoot rimfire 22 and 17hmr but for the real stuff, smallest I have and shoot is a 45 in a handgun and 338 in a long gun. 9mm's look like good and plenty's to me.... :p
