Very nice, wife loves it. She had a .40 compact but was intimidated by it's design and function. I knew this gun she'd be comfortable with. Bought this gun with the "QP" discount however I received an email from Bud's a week following my purchase to contact them about my order. After a lengthy hold to speak to a Bud's rep, I was informed that I would be charged an extra $21 for this gun now as they were out of the "LE" model... ??? Same gun in every way, same part number, but now I had to pay full retail. If Bud's were out of the "LE" model which is the exact gun how could they ship this one to me? If I were running this business I would make sure my oversight would not result in charging the customer more as they did to me.

Great gun, really heavy trigger pull. Bought this for my Girlfriend but i will probably end up carrying it due to the 12lbs of pull needed to fire it.

Service from Bud’s was great as usual. Second S&W revolver purchased, awesome concealed carry weapon. Have put a little over 100 rounds through it. Handle absorbs recoil well. This is my go to carry.

    William, nothing. .38 Special has a maximum pressure of 17,000 PSI, .38 Special +P is 20,000 PSI. You can certainly fire the less powerful standard 38 Special Load in a +P rated revolver such as the M642. It will be milder shooting and is recommended for the recoil sensitive and has less muzzle blast which is beneficial in an indoor shooting/defense scenario where you might not have time for hearing protection.
