    Yes it has same types of grips. I actually got luck on buying this. I found a female officer who was switching agencies and they did not allow BUG's. She had no use for it and sold it to me for $350 It was like brand new when I got it! Great little BUG and it is very light.

    That's a steal for the Ti version. I got mine on sale andI looked at the Ti version over $800 bucks for it . I could have bought a Sig for that much and had some money left over. What kinda rounds you guys carring in yours?

    I could never fire accurately with my .38 airweight at anything more than 3 yards away because there was nothing to absorb the recoil. When I did carry it, I preferred the hammerless version because I heard of too many officers carrying a wheel gun on their ankle getting the hammer hooked on the hem of their trousers.

    But I traded it up for a baby Glock .40 and she does just fine.

    121, nice purchase and excellent choice of ammo.

    Carry it in good health.

    The Smith J frames are a personal favorite. I always have several around the house. My current, always on me gun is my Smith 442 in the front pants pocket, with a speed loader in the other pocket.

    Sometime though, I carry it OWB.




    But usually tucked in my pocket.

    Agreed, my 442 is my always gun.

    I think 121 made an excellent choice - there isn't much better in the realm of a small wheelgun.

    Taurus makes an excellent version for those on a budget - and I would feel every bit as safe with a Taurus as well.

    I carry a G27 right now, but have been thinking about trading it in for a 642 (or, like Mac said, a Taurus more likely) because I'm starting to feel the strain on my left leg (as that's where i keep the ankle rig at work)...my knee is starting to bother me and i've noticed my left hip isn't as flexible as my right. I like that i only carry 1 caliber round, and if my G22 suffers a fatal malfunction, my full size mags go into my little fella...but the weight and bulk is starting to become a real issue.

    I think you've made a wise choice, 121..if i had it to do all over again, I'd probably not get the G27. BTW, funny story, I bought the G27 from Tacticalii a couple of years ago, and he turned around and used that money to buy a hammerless 642. He knew something I didn't............

    There is nothing like a S&W wheel gun. I carried a Mod 60 for thirty year and still do. I bought one of those Ti's and had trouble with it. Not the weapon but i have some deranged tendons in my hand I couldn't shoot a qual score with out it putting my hand out of commission.

    For those that have problems with a heavy trigger pull Smith's can be adjusted by a competent gun smith. They can be made very smooth. The newer Smiths are much ruffer than the units made back in the day.

    For the curious, those are Uncle Mikes Boot Grips.

    You can get them for under $30, although the S&W usually comes with them.

    They are more difficult to shoot well, but it really isn't recoil that causes poor accuracy.

    It's flinching and poor trigger.

    You get prepared for that hellacious bang, and you want to get it over with.

    I swear though, it really won't hurt you. It is possible to make head shots at 25 yards with these guns.

    The Smith 5 shots have always been a good choice for a BUG. I love my 340PD. And not too long ago they were favored for plainclothes main duty gun.

    Do you carry the 340PD loaded with .357 Mags? I carry either an M&P40c or PPK as a backup, but I have been looking at the 340PD again ... Having 5 rounds of .357 Mag sounds like a bad day for somebody.
