I brough tthe wife to the gun shop this weekend and set her loose to choose her first handgun. I gave her general info, but wanted her to choose largely for herself. After handling several revolvers, and a Ruger LCP, she decided she liked revolvers better than semis, as she really had trouble dealing with the mechanics of the Ruger. The slide also kicked her butt. She ended up with a Smith and Wesson 642-2, with Crimson Trace grips. In the little research I did when we got home, it seemed to garner very positive reviews. The one thing I haven't found yet is a good, open carry holster for this model. Does anyone one one of these, and have any recommendations for an open carry holster or any general tips or info? I'm not a revolver guy, so I don't know jack about them.
