Just Got My CHL

I just received it in the mail last week. My only pistol I own is a XD Compact .45. I placed a order with Crossbreed for one of there Supertuck Deluxe Holsters & one of there Gun Belts. Should be here within a few weeks.

I have been thinking of getting some type of 38 special revolver because they seem to be easier to conceal. The 2 that have caught my eye are the S&W 642 & Ruger LCR. What do you guys think about these wheel guns? Any other you would recommend?

I'd kinda like to have a hammer-less revolver to carry.

You don't have to worry about it jamming, FTE, etc. If it doesn't fire, just pull the trigger again ! Downside is they obviously don't carry as many rounds.

5 rounds should be enough, I hope.

I've had/shot both and prefer my Ruger LCR between the two. It is ultra light weight, extremely slim, and shoots great. I NEVER leave home without it. That said, if in jeans/slacks, I carry a semi-auto on me as well

I like my S&W 642 as long as I'm not trying to be Superman at the range by putting a lot of rounds through it. I'm sure the LCR is about the same in that respect.

The hamerless frame is great for pocket carry. Nothing to snag on if you have to pull it out of your pocket.

Hows the recoil?

Of the 642? It's not bad if you don't put more than 50 round through it on a range trip. I would definately shoot something else in between if possible. The first time I shot it, I put 100 rounds down range. My hand was hurting like a mother fucker within about an hour of leaving the range. I was only shooting 130 gr fmj, not even +p.

Don't get me wrong, I love the gun, but will not put a lot of rounds down the pipe anymore.

I have both of those and I'm not sure which one I prefer. The LCR is very light with a very nice trigger. It's a bit bulky though. I find myself carrying the S&W when my wife doesn't. My 442 conceals very well and the recoil is very manageable. The trigger isn't bad at all.

The only time my hand hurt was my first outing with the LCR. I've since modified my grip when shooting the snubbies and it hasn't been all that bad. I haven't tried any +p ammo yet. I'm sure that once I do I'll be singing a different tune.


I'm new to wheel guns but I got great deals on these. We picked up the 442 brand new for $329 at The Bullet Trap and we got the LCR for $369 at one of the shows.

I've been wanting to go shoot lately. You're welcome to check them out if we can agree on a time frame.

Thanks for the offer but I live in Corpus Christi. I went over to a gun shop yesterday just to look at them & the LCR did look & feel a little bulky. As I was walking out I noticed that they had that new S&W .38 BodyGuard but didn't get a chance to really look at it. Anyone have any thoughts on these new pistols?
