Subtitle: Gunbroker is a dangerous place...... I placed a lowball max bid on a pre-lock Smith 638 two weekends ago and promptly forgot about it as I've always been outbid before. Imagine my happy surprise when I got the notification email that, not only had I won, but it was below may max bid amount! I've never owned a J-frame Smith before that wasn't a .22, but always liked the classic Bodyguard design, so I've kept an eye out for a +p no-lock model without any luck. So when this one popped-up on a no reserve I thought I'd roll the dice. This will be a back-up carry gun for me, or possibly the Mrs. if she bonds with it, so I wasn't concerned that the original box and paperwork was missing, especially for the price. I have to admit, I didn't expect it to be in as good shape as it is! It barely even has a turn ring on the cylinder. I took it out and got it nice and dirty on Sunday, but forgot to take the camera along. It shoots fairly well, keeping 5 rounds in a palm-sized group at 10 yards, but the front sight will need some help in direct sunlight and the +p rounds really made me think hard about bigger grips, or at least some that will cover the backstrap. I'm guessing we might have some serious j-frame fans on here and would love to hear any and all suggestions for grips, sights, and even holsters.
