[5 of 5 Stars!]This S&W Airweight (15 ounces) DAO 642 revolver in .38 Special is a wonderful concealed carry weapon. The fully enclosed hammer allows a snag free draw from any holster, and the gun handles + P ammo. The trigger pull is somewhat heavy, but consistent and smooth. The 1.875 inch barrel belies the accuracy of the little revolver once you have some time to practice on the range with it. The revolver took a week to reach my FFL dealer due to the Christmas holiday, but that wasn't Buds fault. They mailed it the day after receiving final payment. Speaking of payment, I purchased this weapon on their 180 day lay-away with only 10% down and six months to pay, which ultimately made the purchase quite painless. Buds met all of my expectations in this transaction, and the weapon was received in obviously new condition at my FFL.

[5 of 5 Stars!]Very nice, wife loves it. She had a .40 compact but was intimidated by it's design and function. I knew this gun she'd be comfortable with.
Bought this gun with the "QP" discount however I received an email from Bud's a week following my purchase to contact them about my order. After a lengthy hold to speak to a Bud's rep, I was informed that I would be charged an extra $21 for this gun now as they were out of the "LE" model... ??? Same gun in every way, same part number, but now I had to pay full retail. If Bud's were out of the "LE" model which is the exact gun how could they ship this one to me? If I were running this business I would make sure my oversight would not result in charging the customer more as they did to me.Show More Reviews...
