        I looked at multiple forum threads saying that the trigger is easy to short-stroke, and the gun overall feeling like shit.

        I wish S&W would make 642s with anodized aluminum instead of that clear coat that peels when you use Hoppes 9 or make a non-Pro 640 without the lock.

          It's also damn near completely sealed. If you pack the internals in grease water can't even get in to displace it. Revolvers jam due to parts failures or gross neglect. Autos can jam because you held it wrong.

        You can fuck up a trigger pull, but that takes some skill. Shitty/hot ammo bulging primers sticking the cylinder. Filling it full of dirt isn't advised. There was some video years ago, VHS I think even, about taking apart a woman's revolver who kept it in her purse and there was a wad of lint behind the trigger so big it stopped it from being able to be pulled.

        During my NS days, during shooting exams I came across all kinds of Revolver issues.
        From keyholing, light hammer strikes, worn out pins, cylinder dropping onto the floor after the first shot, fully pulling the trigger, the cylinder on spin 1/2 but the hammer works vice versa.
        Its either the armorer blows goat balls or the revolvers were just too used.
        Or its a Taurus.

          Because some people looking for a budget revolver will pay the premium over something like an 856 just for the branding without caring anything about features/actual value. S&W got rocked when the LCR came out and the bodyguard was the response.

      I carry the S&W Bodyguard 38. Mostly pocket carry, some IWB. Never had a jam. On the up side, it's very light, easy to carry. On the down side, it's very light, will punish you with range shooting. If I buy another one, it will be an stainless Taurus 856 with a concealed hammer. However, 38sp ammo has been hard to find at times, and I'm also considering a Shield Plus in 9mm.

      have a similar model. Its miserable to shoot and at five yards I was pulling hard left because of the amount of trigger pull. My step mom is physically incapable of using it as a CCW.
      Its only good for putting it in someone's gut and firing. Anything beyond that it may as well just be a pop gun, cause the only way you'll kill them is scaring them to death thinking they've been shot.

    Yeah, I carry a snubby in my 9-5. Outside of a controlled zone, I choose something bigger with more punch like my M&P shield. Since it's cooler out, I usually carry a VP9sk or a Glock 19 on the weekends. For funsies on certain days in winter, I'll carry my 1911, Python or PX4 storm in a shoulder holster.

            You can't use moon clips without extensive modification to your cylinder in most cases. The only real choice is strip or speed loader. Most speedloaders are awful for snubnose revolvers because the cylinders are closer to the frame when opened. Even if you find one that works well with your gun they are big and clunky. Speed strips are basically the best option available.

                I basically agree, but when it comes to the opportunity cost of carrying another 4-8 rounds in a flat form factor that easily fits into a pocket I can't come up with any reason to not carry a strip as well.

          All right. I'm convinced. I'm ready to look into them and get a couple and practice.

          What should I be looking for in good, durable speed loading strips? What prices might I expect as good or bad for what different brands/models offer?

          I'd be happy carrying one strip with ten cartridges on it, but what options are available? And what advantages would they have or not have comparing a six-strip to a ten or whatever is available?

          Looking for strips that would hold .357/.38. I wouldn't mind having half a dozen or so strips in a convenient location that are loaded with different ammo options.

              Thanks. I assume this brand has a reputation for durability? I like the 2 for $14 deal. That makes it an affordable buy-in to have a half dozen on-hand.

              Anyone have comments regarding a thin, straight strip vs. the staggered double-stack of the K-Pak? I like being able to load three cartridges at once, but is the additional bulk of the wider strip design anything to be concerned about for practical carry?

              I feel the ideal would be a single-wide strip of ten or twelve for flat/concealed carry. But, maybe a pair of these K-Paks is just as good or better?

                Oh and if you're gonna go for straight strips get a 7 rd for a 5 shot gun and a 8rd for a 6 shot gun so you can have a space between to make it easier. Like a 7 shot would be 2, empty, 2, empty, 1 and a 8 shot would be 2, empty, 2 empty, 2. You'd load two rds at a time.

      here's a wacky jam that is only possible with revolvers:
      If you have a top break and don't open it vigorously enough, a cartridge can get wedged under the ejector star. Then you can't close the action, and there's no ejector rod to hit, so your only option is to grab the star with your fingers and pull it out of the way while you shake the cartridge out.

        Pretty easy way to prevent this is just dont have the cylender pointing toward the sky when you open the gun. just turn the gun side ways when you break it so they fall away from the chambers instead of back into them

      In order for a DA revolver to go bang something would have to apply 12+lbs of force to the trigger, something would have to apply 12+lbs of force to hold the gun still and nothing could impinge on the cylinder rotating. They're very safe guns. I carried pic related mexican style for many years. No worries.

        It's more her racking the slide than trigger pull. But thanks for the tip i'll keep that in mind.

        Airweight/airlite have a lot of recoil, even with 38 spl. Does she need it to be light, or steel will work?
        Also try shield ez 380 or glock 42?

        No it doesn't have to be light, it's just one of the guns she happened to remember when she and my dad went looking. Steel would be fine.
        >Also try shield ez 380
        She held it, liked it but knowing her she won't be able to unfuck it if something happens on a good day yet alone a high stress situation. I think most simple is the easiest way to go.

      For carry or just around the house? If it's for around the house and you think she can handle an auto look at the S&W Shield EZ in .380. If you don't think she can handle an auto look at a 4" medium frame steel revolver. It will be much softer shooting.

      With revolvers, generally, they let you know in the first few hundred rounds if there's an issue. Put several boxes through it, and if it's good, it will be good for a long while. If it needs work, well you cheaped out and lost the lottery.

                Market is not correct with revolvers right now because of new buyers from chinaflu and 38 special being low production runs these days that were not prepared for wild card 2020. It will stabilize back down by 20% at least

                >worst are the boomers that bought the new Pythons and get butthurt they aren't getting a premium like a vintage royal blue Python
                >SON THIS IS A PYTHON! You are lowballing me
                >Sir, we have the exact model new for $1500 and yours has...
                >Give me back my gun
                >2 days later
                >comes in all meek
                >yeah, I'll take $1200 for it like you offered

                old fart probably was offered $500 from the vulture pawn shops in the area.

                No kidding. I've been wanting an SP101 for a while but bullshit kept cropping up and eating my money and now that I'm making more money than I ever have before SP101s are priced at more than I'm willing to pay. Also I haven't seen .38spc in person for months and when I see it online it's more expensive than .380ACP. Shit's fucked right now.

                No signs of stopping. I am starting to think small pistol primers will never get back to regular stock levels.

                You wanna buy mine? It's in .357, selling it for $500 but I'd be willing to trade for an LCR in the same caliber.

    Thought about getting a cheap snub for range fun and maaaaybe carry. Wanted a RIA M206 but this thread seems consensus'd on Taurus 856. Is it really that good? I don't know if I'm strong enough to tuck away my hateboner for >taurus

      Go handle/inspect one and I bet you buy it over the RIA.

          J.H. Fitzgerald is one of the biggest reasons mass produced snubnose revolvers are even a thing because they weren't a thing until he started doing his custom chop jobs at Colt. Colt eventually did a "factory" chop job on the Police Positive and called it the Detective Special. S&W said "haha fuck you we'll make a snub and call it the Chiefs Special we out rank you gay!" and the rest is history.
