FYI, Usually, they keep the same post to one forum. Mods will just close extras.

Edit to add,

I like the 642 also.

Some Jframes come with roll pinned front sights. The ones that I have done, you had to use the hole on the gun as a follower to drill the hole on the sight. I broke a drill off doing this on one of mine and that drill is still being used to secure the sight. It may fall out some day, but if not, it is working fine.

Shootinbill, you can shoot. Same as in your other videos, you make it look easier than it is.

I have a 642 and love it. Carry it IWB in a kydex from Alabamaholster.com the model is called the "offside", where the single belt-loop does not add to the thickness of the cylinder.

I had a 642 and traded it for a G27. The 642 had a ton of recoil and with the barrell was not real small to carry. I can put the G27 in a front pocket just the same as a 642 and it is actually thinner with less butt. Plus it shoots 10. They are pretty light though.

Shooting Bill could shoot a slingshot and look good. That is crazy talent.

Same here. If I could shoot my 642 like that, I wouldn't have decided to sell it and get a G26. Some of us need more help than others.

Yep, the little 5-shot snubs can be very handy, and MUCH more accurate than many folks might suspect. (But hey, it's still just a good grip, sight picture and controlled trigger press, when all is said & done. )

Not the easiest for some folks to learn to shoot, though, even some folks who may already be owners of larger framed revolvers.

I'm up to 8 of the 5-shot snubs, only 3 of which are steel. The rest are a mix of Airweights and a pair of M&P 340's.

I've found that the smaller size XS front dot is easier for me to pick up and actually use for precision aimed shots, and almost as fast as the Big Dot sight I've had one one of little pistols for many years (it's an older Ashley Express sight).

I think the XS front sight & the nicely machined U-notch of the M&P snubs is probably the best thing going for the little wheelies.

Some attention to loading skills is probably more neglected nowadays than when revolvers were still the primary service weapons. Especially with the stubby ejectors of the short-barreled snubs, the smaller 5-shot cylinders and the smaller frame cylinder window.

Hopefully it won't become a "lost art" for revolvers.
