My husband got me this gun for Christmas and I love it!! It fits perfectly in my hand, great balance, and the basket patterned wood grip is beautiful. I shot it for the first time and the action is so smooth, the kick is less that what I expected for such a short barrel. It fits comfortably in my purse and I could not be happier, best purchase!! - LANAN DESHA
I have a Smith & Wesson model 442 and love it . My regular CCW is a Glock-19 9mm . The Smith is a better Summer carry . It fits neatly in a pocket or a belly band and is undetectable in most summer wear . Practice shooting or dry shooting it as it has a rough trigger pull . It will not go off by accident. I find it very accurate at 10-20 feet . What more is needed in self defense ? - F. F.
A really great weapon for concealed carry. Very light weight, even when loaded.
It can kick a bit because of the light weight but my wife loves this weapon, even with +P ammo and believe me if anyone would complain about something my wife would.
I would recommend it for anyone for concealed carry. - R. C.
I have two - great gun. A must for every gun owner. It shoots very well and fits in any small pocket. Never will I carry another 38 revolver it's one to hold on to. Great protection, love the feel of it. Thank you Smith & Wesson for this model. - K. C.
My first revolver. It is great weight, easy to conceal and enjoyable to shoot. The recoil is a little heavier than a 22 but manageable. I wish the rear sites were adjustable. Happy with my selection. - KAREN
