Role Of Smith and Wesson 642 LadySmith

It’s a wonderful carry gun because of the enclosed hammer, tiny size, and light weight. The form of a revolver is unusual. When it comes to concealed carry, this shape lends itself to concealment.
Revolvers conceal themselves better than semiautomatic pistols of comparable size.
A semiautomatic pistol’s blockiness makes it less concealable.

Weight Of Smith and Wesson 642 LadySmith

The Smith and Wesson 642 is a relatively light gun, weighing only 14 and a half ounces.

It’s fully loaded and should weigh in at roughly one pound.

While that may not seem like much, if you intend to carry this gun on your ankle, it will be quite heavy.

For an ankle gun, the rule of thumb is to keep it under one pound if at all possible. The good news is that you may carry this gun without a belt if you’re wearing gym shorts or some other type of clothing.

Any weight you carry adds to the overall weight that strains your joints, thus a lighter gun is always preferable when it comes to carrying.

Shooting Smith & Wesson 642 Review

Smith and Wesson 642

If you use the appropriate ammo, this is a pretty shootable revolver, especially considering the weight. With 38 +Ps, shooting this rifle is a chore. Shooting with 38 specials isn’t fun, but it’s achievable. shop for the best prices

I’m not looking forward to firing more than 50 rounds through this rifle in a single range session.

When I go to the range, I shoot about 20 rounds with this gun and then I’m done.

Simply put, this rifle has a lot of recoil.

The good news is that the OEM rubber grip soaks it up beautifully.

Not so much with the factory laser grip. prices on in stock SW

There are, however, a number of different grips that will reduce recoil. For example, Hogue makes a lengthy handle that makes it feel like you’re firing a 22-caliber pistol, but concealing the weapon is difficult. in stock SW 642s

Concluding Thoughts Smith and Wesson 642 Review

Overall, I enjoy using this weapon. It’s arguably one of the best revolver values out there for the money.

This rifle isn’t what I’d call an outstanding bargain, but it’s still a good deal. best prices on
