CCW w/642 by Jim from Pickerington, OHIO

Five Stars

Hides well and it is lite. Six oclock hold at 7 yards, dead on at 14 yards.

Could not ask for a better hideout gun.

Great For Conceal and Carry by Josh from Madison, IN

Four Stars

Fantastic for carrying in pocket using a pocket holster. Can be drawn quickly and smoothly. For a small gun, the 38 Special ammo for self defense is more than adequate in my opinion. The gun does have a lot of recoil for a hand gun and because of the short barrel may not be that accurate at long distances, but for conceal and carry I think its a hard gun to beat.

Perfect CCW by Joel from Akron, Ohio

Five Stars

This revolver is the perfect CC weapon. It hides well and is light. I don't even know it is on me and occasionally feel for it just to be sure. It is not a range gun - after about ten rounds the recoil is felt in your hand. But it should not be purchased as a range gun. As a conceal weapon, you cannot go wrong.
