    With my back problems a j frame is all I can carry. But don’t underestimate me. I’m old and tired. I won’t fight you. I’ll just put 5 where they need to go.

    What do you guys do for sights ? Love my 642 but with 60 year old eyes the thin front blade and gutter rear don’t make for great accuracy.
    I’ve painted front orange rear green that helps some

    I carry my little 637 and a speed strip sometimes, but I mainly carry my 365, and a spare mag. 8AE5A032-1D13-457F-B656-16D266F5CA18.jpeg

    I carry my 640 Pro Series quite often. It’s the only CCW I’ll pocket carry (in a leather pocket holster), usually in a cargo shorts pocket.

    If you look at the photo below, you can see a very prominent big dot night sight on the MP340.

    Every day, and my job takes me into some sketchy places in the middle of the night.

    I did a brief stint with my G26 during the protests/riots, but it is no-where near as comfortable nor easy to work around than a J-frame is. Capacity is nice, but my job requires all sorts of odd movements and if I have to dick around adjusting myself to get around my gun, then I am worrying about something I shouldn't be.

    When my Sweetie and I travel I have two J Frames a 442 no dash and a 49 no dash, and she knows that when things might get a bit tense I am going to hand her one of those J-frames. She has a CCW permit but would rather not carry on an hourly basis. (She is a teacher and that says enough) But when I hand her a J-Frame she says it makes her feel safe. I wish she would carry one herself, but it is what it is.

    I still carry one on occasion but only with ammo that gives it respectable performance. The 135gr Speer Short Barrel round and the Underwood 125gr GD round with a listed velocity of 1200 fps. both offer dependable performance in my 38 J-frame that was not available in years past.

    The 640 is still a J frame but in .357 magnum, basically a stainless Centennial.
