From a long time Bud's customer and a concealed weapons permit holder this is one one my favorite revolvers. The S&W J frames have always been reliable, accurate for this class of firearm and easily carried concealed. The model 638 is my normal choice due to the fact I can fire it either via single or double action without the hammer catching on clothing. With a good pocket holster I have instant access and comfortable carry so I use it daily when dressed for warmer weather. The gun is +p rated and is with me daily when a larger firearm is harder to conceal. Bud's, for you folks new to online purchases is the best there is when it comes to service, stock available, price and quick turnaround. If you need an every day carry piece this one is great choice for men or women because of simplicity to learn, reliability and ease of carry.

I just picked up this gun a couple hours ago, not very happy. First of all there was no key in the box for the safety lock. Called S&W they are sending one to me. Second, I have never bought a new gun, let alone a S&W, that had so many sharp edges. I spent an hour filing them down. Third, The hammer needs two hand to cock! Will try to figure that out later..... Bud\'s was good though!

Very nice little pistol for under $400! I was very surprised and the accuracy of such a short barrel.

Bud's...flawless transaction, speedy service. ...Smith & Wesson......perfect, flawless firearm, shipped perfectly clean. No issues whatsoever..I fired 25 rounds...some SA, some DA..Great! The ultimate pocket light you'll check periodically to make sure it's still in your pocket....not my first Airweight, they hold up well to heavy firing and constant carry...even in dirty conditions. I just wipe it clean, blow with dry compressed air, re-oil.....carry...repeat.... ...if a pocket gun is heavy or cumbersome, you will not carry it... This gun is the one for concealed carry or a ladies purse... Ideal size and weight. ...short of Divine intervention, this piece of clockwork won't let you down....

I'll give it four stars, but, personally, I was disappointed. aluminum frame scratches easily, given that it is a softer metal than steel. Also, because it is so light, the felt recoil is considerable. Nice gun. smith and wesson quality. I just didn't care for it.
