I'm looking for a S&W 642 Airweight .38 Spec. My wife has finally gotten to the point that she would be ready to carry. We were in the N. GA mountains over the weekend & stopped in a store that had everything, from guns to shoes to furniture. We had talked about many different options and how what works for me might be very different from what works for her. So we went to the gun counter & she held several different ones. There wasn't a semi-auto that she could rack the slide on. But she loved the feel of the 642. It fit her perfectly and was much more comfortable in her petite hands than the LCR. They didn't have an on-site range, so she hasn't fired one yet. But if anyone has a 642 they are looking to sale, I might be interested. I'm in Fayetteville & work in McDonough.
