I suppose you could have a failure to fire if the cylinder was out of time or if there were issue with the internals.

Oh, I see. I thought FTF was "Failure to Feed".

Lol I think the two are interchangeable. But I assumed he was talking about failure to fire since it was a revolver.

I love my S&W 638 Airweight, especially the single action feature. Shouded hammer so it is still good for concealed carry.

Not a huge fan, it seems like every other person I meet has one though, so that says something. The only reason I'm not crazy about them is the same reason I'm not crazy about any sub compact pocket pistol. They are not fun for me to shoot, and uncomfortable.

Yes they were "failure to fire". Three trigger pulls followed by a click.
Using Remington ammo.

I have to say that after getting the bodyguard back from the s&w repair center, i fired off a full box of fifty rounds without any problems. They replaced the hand that holds the cylinder and pin spring. So i am happy with it now.
