S&W M438 5RD 38SP +P 2"
by charles h Date Added: Saturday 03 March, 2012
Received this purchase on 2/29/12. Have not test fired yet. Got this to replace a heavier Rossi model 68 snub nose. Friend of mine has had a model 638 J frame since 2008 and he swears it's the perfect CCW handgun. He was right. Can't even tell I'm wearing it on my outside hip because it is sooooooo light. I carry it in a Blackhawk serpa holster and feel very comfortable. Can't wait to shoot it. I know felt recoil should be worse. This isn't a gun to buy and put lots of rounds thru it at the range. Only one complaint. Looked gun over at FFL. Didn't notice until I got home cylinder was nicked up in two places. Nothing serious, but it's there. Got it for carry, so it's going to get abused anyway.
