The only drawback to this product, which didn't come as a surprise but nonetheless is worth observing is that the light weight when combined with 357 rounds is hard on the trigger finger. Almost impossible to hold firmly enough to prevent some torquing and scrap/strain on that region.

Absolutely amazing gun but HOLY COW does it have a HEAVY trigger. I purchased a new spring kit from APEX Tactical Solutions for $30 (including special tool for return spring installation) which I will install this weekend. I would also suggest removing the lock as S&W says it has a 1 in 500 failure rate. This can cause BIG problems if the lock accidently engages when using heavy .357 ammo in a self-defense situation. Google how to do it. This gun is the PERFECT pocket carry gun, but it is NOT a small ladies gun or a gun for an inexperienced shooter. It shoots .38 special fairly easily. Most home defense rounds are in .38 Special +P. This may likely be too much for an inexperienced shooter. .357 rounds are PUNISHING out of this gun. I would not expect to shoot these except in a carry situation. Definitely not for fun at the range. Many people purchase this gun with the expectation to have a fun range gun just to return it later. I liken this to buying a Jeep Wrangler. MANY people complain about it because it doesn't get good gas mileage or doesn't have as much power that people want when they pass at highway speeds. People that buy it for its intended use (off-roading) are exceptionally pleased with it. Same for this gun. It is no light shooting ladies gun for long days of plinking at the range. It IS a hardcore thumping self-defense monster that is easily concealable in your front pocket.

Bought this as a back up for my Kimber Custom CDP II. I carry this in an Alessi Ankle Rig and don't even know it's there! I've had it for about two years. I've also tried pocket carry but the ankle rig frees up the pocket that I dearly missed. The pocket holster was a bit bulky for my liking as well. For those that haven't shot the super light J-frames before, this is not a "cute little gun to buy for the wife". They are an experts gun. Very stout recoil by most standards and difficult to shoot accurately without lots of practice on control of the heavy double action trigger and short sight radius. I suggest lots of dry fire at home and live fire at the range. Many buy these and find they are a hand full and end up carrying a lot but rarely shoot them. Not a good idea for a gun that may be needed to save your life! Buy this gun and practice, practice, practice! For those who understand what they are buying this is an excellent choice! Nice to have such a capable caliber in such a lightweight and concealable package!

This is a replacement for one I had for 3yrs. as my weapon of choice for ccw and was stolen. Best bang for the buck. This is my 1st visit to Bud's and I couldn't be happier with the price or service. I ordered it Sat 8/6 and will pick it up tomorrow 8/10. I will be back for future purchaces.

great for c.c.w. very light and easy to carry..the perfect weight, i also have a 642 and a 442, without the laser grips, with this 357 mag option the laser is a must it allows pinpoint accuracy with very ;little practice,i am able to place 5 rounds in the same hols at 9 yards, you cannot ask for more then this.....
