I've always wanted one of these, and the local Fin, Feather and Fur had a sale, so I couldn't resist. It's got the stupid "lock" on it, but other than that I have no complaints. Very pocket-able and lightweight. I still need to find a good holster for it, lately I've just stuck it in my waistband or in a pocket.
(As a side note, I work part-time (off duty LEO gig) at a women's homeless shelter. We have one of those big walk-through metal detectors at the door. Surprisingly, the 642 doesn't set it off I've heard they can be calibrated based on the amount of metal they detect, so I guess I'll have to talk to the bosses there.)
Anyway, what's a good iwb holster for ccw? Anyone find an ankle holster they actually like? (I don't like them, mostly for the fact that I doubt I'd be able to draw from it quickly.)
Also, can I dry fire this without damage or should I get some snap caps? I never understood how dry firing can damage the weapon, so if someone could enlighten me I'd appreciate it.
So far I've fed it some Federal 110 gr hydrashock (low recoil) and PMC 132 gr FMJs. The recoil with both types has been manageable, and for what I'll be using it for (BUG) it fits the bill.
The only time you can have too much ammunition is if you're swimming or on fire!
