The Mdl 442 is an excellent small revolver. This model allows use of five-round moon clips, which provide a faster manner of reloading but require a little testing and perfecting of the clip/bullet combination to ensure proper function. Moon clips frankly work better with the shorter .45 ACP rounds in the full-size Mdl 625 than they do in the smallish Mdl 442 -- based on size, dynamics, and the greater strength of the clips that hold the .45 rounds compared to the thinner clips that hold the .38 Special rounds. The 442 with moon clips is a viable combination, though; it just requires a little more attention. To be honest, every round you carry for self-protection, whether in a set of five attached to a moon clip, or carried separately, should be tested in your cylinder to make sure it fits properly! If you don't want or like moonclips, buy the regular Mdl 442 or the Mdl 642 and enjoy the savings (both are available with the no-lock feature). Overall, though, this is a wonderful revolver, and I will be using it with a moon clip. The Bud's price and service was excellent and increased my enjoyment of this purchase.

Nice little gun. Really can't go wrong with these for the price. No brainer to get the PRO version over the regular version for the cost differential.

Nice little J-frame. It is exactly what I was expecting.

Pros: very comfortable grip, light, easy to conceal, and 100% reliable. Cons: heavy trigger and sharp recoil with +P. This is my first personal revolver. I have shot others, but not regularly. My biggest concern was my poor accuracy. I own and shot P238, P290, G26, and P22 same day. I am no sharp shooter, but I shot much better groups with All the semi's listed above. I attribute to my lack of revolver experience and a heavy trigger. Gun felt awesome in my hand and had good sight line. Heavy trigger somewhat necessary for CC, but my poor accuracy gives me pause.

Typical smith and wesson product, excellent quality and performance. To be picky I need to coment on the moon clips. They are difficult to load and unload, I started to use a screw driver to remove the spent shells fron the clip due to they being a bit flimsy.Also make sure you pratice loading and unloading the gun for the demensions are close and may some times interfere with the process.
