    Congrats,she looks very happy with her new 638.

    I've been looking at some of the various j frames that smith offers and the internal hammers or shrouded hammers are really appealing to me for the fact they can be fired from a pocket if needed and no worry about a exposed hammer snagging.

    When you get a chance let us know how it shoots,also how's the trigger feel on the J frames.

    Very very smooth and light trigger in S/A . I did not expect the trigger to be quite that light . Shrouded hammer is the way to go IMHO . That way your not limited to DAO .

    My wife had a 638 for a little bit. It just didn't fit her like she thought it would. I thought the SA trigger was very light and crisp and the DA was great also. She just didn't care for it, she opted for an Lc9.

    Very nice little revolver. I would like to have a shrouded hammer revolver. But..........I want to see the pink grips. :eek:

    Don't be surprised if you walk in on her talking into the mirror with the gun in her hand. "You feel lucky punk?" or "Are you looking at me?":p:D

    She does look happy!!!

    Thanks for the trigger report purehavoc.
    I've been looking at some 642s w/internal hammer as well some of the shrouded hammer models,they look like a great carry companion.

    My FIL has the 642 , he is wishing he would have known about the 638 being a S/A, D/A . He thinks he would have went that route .

    I have a 642. My wife has one in 22mag. I looked at the one that you can cock. But I was concerned that if you cocked it and then needed to uncock it, that might be dangerous.
