Great pocket gun. One of my carry guns. It rides very comfotably in a pocket holster. I will grant that the trigger isn't as nice as an LCR, but this just "felt" better. I have carried this weapon for nearly a year now and shoot it at least 2X a month. I have yet to have any issues. an overall excellent carry pistol.

This is a kick butt gun. If you a like small, light weight, all metal weapon that packs a lot of fire power with not that much recoil, this is a great choice. Because it's a revolver, it didn't require any break in. Have run about 300 rounds through it and it shoots where you aim it. It's quite accurate to 30 feet out. The gun fits well in a pocket holster, but could be used in any holster for that matter. Carried as a back up in a ankle holster to a smaller 380 in a pocket is ideal. This guns works well for home protection or conceal carry. Loading this gun with person protection ammo (speers gold dot 135gr) really gives this weapon respect. Obviously with it's short barrel and light weight there is more recoil, but not overwellming-very easy to come back on target. It's a great gun for a reasonable price. As usual, Buds gives great service and good prices.

This has been my first experience with Buds, and I must say that I am very satisfied with the whole process of buying a firearm online with them. The process was very straightforward, and they did a great job of notifying by email throughout the whole process. Placed the order Monday afternoon, and it arrived at my FFL by noon on Thursday. The 442 arrived, and it looks great! I am excited to put some rounds through over the weekend to test it out, but being the owner of 2 other S&W revolvers (638 and 686), I know that I will be pleased with my purchase. This is going to take its place as a front pocket, summer carry gun.

Bought this gem for my wife as a "bedroom/car" gun, as well as occasional carry. This is the ideal lightweight, no bells-&-whistles defense revolver - just what she wanted, with shrouded hammer and no safeties/mag release/other buttons to fuss with in a crisis. We've put 100+ rounds through it so far out to 25 yds, and she loves it. So do I. It does exactly what it's designed for, and it does it well. Yes, the trigger takes some getting used to, but if you're going for the 442 in the dark or with an imminent threat, you surely don't want a hair trigger.
