Smith & Wesson 442 .38 Spl+P 1-7/8" Black 
by Roger P
Date Added: Friday 06 April, 2012
I purchased the S&W 442 for use in a pistol class in NC geared torwards women. Ordered on Monday was at the range on Thursday! No problems whatsoever (once I remembered the difference in UPS and USPS, MY BAD). The fit and finish was excellent and the pistol was as advertised.
If you decide to purchase this pistol I recomend Bud's for price and service. When you get the pistol and first try the trigger pull DON'T go crazy. YES, it is bad. Before you go and buy a spring kit try and dry-fire( with caps or empty cases ofc) the 38 several thousand times. I did say thousands, you will be amazed at the difference. The trigger smooths out and becomes much more manageable.
There is a reason that the "j" frame Smith hasn't changed (Except for the STUPID side lock)for @ 100 years. When it comes to power, concealability, and shootabilty this weapon platform is hard to beat. I grabbed and old holster and am thinking of carring this pistol when I am just running out the door. Great gun.
