I've wanted this Model 638 for a few years, but didn't want to spend the price. It's not a revolver that is made to spend all day shooting at the range. When the price met what I wanted to spend, I ordered it here. Bud's had it to my FFL in about a week, which is great by me. This is the first J-frame Smith I've owned, though I've shot the 638 at my local range. Snappy little revolver, and mine at least is beautifully finished. I buy remanufactured .38 ammo for a couple of other pistols and as expect, it works flawlessly in this little gun. I haven't tried +P and don't intend to, I'll use my .357 for that if desired. The fixed front sight on mine is well centered and again, this isn't necessarily the firearm for long range shooting. I wanted the 638 because I wanted the shrouded hammer. True, it's interesting looking but I got used to that very quickly. I don't want a double-only revolver, period. This is a great, and a smart, compromise--as it has been since it was introduced in 1955, the year I was born. The shrouded hammer takes a fairly strong pull without much finger traction, but that's a good thing. The single action trigger is indeed a hair trigger, but is smooth and predictable. Delighted with my purchase, and with Bud's.

The revolver is top notch, but that is to be expected from Smith & Wesson. I keep returning to Bud’s gun store because they are also top notch. Bud’s is on the other side of the country from me but their online ordering system is the best.

This is the second S&W M638 I've bought from Bud's. I carry the first in my satchel as a concealed carry. Because of illness I have very little hand and arm strength and the Airweight is a perfect weight for me.The factory trigger pull is heavy so I've had a trigger job done on the first and will do the same with this one which will be bedside home protection. The revolver solves the problem I have with racking an automatic..I've replaced the original grip with one that fits my hand better.

Loved doing business with Bud's. This was my first purchase from them and it was so easy. I received my M638 in about two days.

This is about my 5th time doing business with Buds. The service is the best. The 638 was better than I thought it would be. It is lightweight and can be used as a pocket pistol. That is what I wanted. I have the reliability of a revolver that can be easily concealed. My 380 was questionable. Ftfs happening occasionally. The double action is not that difficult to use. Single action just right. This small and light weight revolver will now become my primary carry gun.

I do like S&W's J-frames and this one did not disappoint at all. After viewing Hickok45's part 2 video on the S&W Model 638 "Bodyguard", I had to have one!!! The ability to fire in either DA or SA while having a shrouded hammer spur is a huge plus too.
