S&W M638 5RD 38SP +P 1.87"
[163070]
$384.00
by Chris H Date Added: Wednesday 07 December, 2011
I replaced an older, heavier, hammerless steel Taurus .357 Mag snubbie with this. The Taurus is nice because it is compensated, but way too heavy for casual carry.
I realized I needed something lighter for concealed carry, and wanted a +P if i was going with a .38 Special.
This firearm is great. It is lightweight and easier to shoot than you would think. I put it in a non-sliding pocket holster and the rounded back allows it to be withdrawn without snagging, every time.
Some people have issues with the "look" of it- I always thought it was cool.
My only complaint is that the hammer spur is somewhat small and not as easy to thumb back as a regular revolver.
Since this is a carry pistol not a target pistol, however, and what really counts is how it functions in double action, it shines in this respect.
