S&W M642CT 5RD 38SP +P 1.87" w/ Crimson Trace
by adam l Date Added: Saturday 31 July, 2010
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).
