I have been a semi-auto fan for most of my days but decided to broaden my experiences, so I just ordered a Smith & Wesson 642. It'll be here by Friday, and I got a really good price on it ($350 brand new). I'll post pics when it comes in. And I'm already thinking about changing the grips, so any recommendations would be appreciated. FWIW, the gun comes with the standard Hogue grip.
