Excellent concealed carry option. Small and light, great for pocket carry or IWB. Reliable, and I trust a .38spl +P more than the 380ACP of most pocket autos. I'm not normally a fan of laser sights, but I think for a small pocket gun with sights that are difficult to see even in daylight (and invisible in the dark), a laser grip is a good option. Note this overmolded CT grip is a bit easier to grip than the standard grips, but the tradeoff is it's a tad more difficult to conceal. The 642CT is not a particularly fun gun to shoot; it's not a great range gun and it's not a great choice for a new shooter (a lot of people think a small gun is the best choice for a new shooter, particularly a female shooter. While intuitive this is not true - small guns are difficult to shoot), and the DAO trigger takes some practice to get used to. However, where CCW is concerned the gun you have on you is the one most likely to save your life, and the 642CT in your pocket is an excellent defensive choice (in fact I have mine in my pocket as I write this review).

This is a great gun if it is the kind of gun you are looking for. The review that was written by Erik F says it all. I agree with all that he said. I would add that it also make a great gun for small varmints (like snakes) with varmint shot in it.

This is a great price on a great concealed carry package. If you are looking for a light-weight J-framed wheelgun, the 642 is the perfect option. Add in the Crimson Trace Laser grips, and you have a formidable combination. The Laser Grips add comfortable padding to the backstrap to help cusion recoil, which is fairly strong in a 15-ounce revolver rated for .38 Special +P ammunition. I wouldn't want to shoot .357 Magnum rounds out of a revolver this size. The Laser aids in aiming, which is great since the sights on this revolver really aren't much help. This type of gun is a short-range point-and-shoot type of defensive solution in my opinion. The Laser provides additional accuracy and range. It is quite bright, even in daylight. I think that a laser is a must for a home-defense gun and a very good idea for a concealed carry weapon as well. The trigger on the 642 that I received is a long and heavy but smooth double-action that feels very good to me. I am very happy with my puchase of this revolver - S&W quality all the way.
