    First off, I am a woman with small hands. After practicing with my father's 38s (Ruger LCR and S&W 442) I decided I wanted the 442 or 642 due to the shape of the grip. LCR just had a larger grip. Couldnt find one in stock in my price range. "settled" for this sweet thing, which is more similar to the Ruger LCR but has a narrower, more curved grip, closer to the 642. I shot 40 rounds thru it today. Not much I know but it was smooth. Very comfortable, the shape of the grip really allows me to hold it and control. As far as accuracy, well, that's my choice so no problems there. I mainly shoot snubbies just 7-10 yards tho. Todays groupings narrowed in nicely after about 10 rounds. (I typically have 2-3" groupings at 7 yards.) The main reason I gave it only 4 stars is the cylinder release location. It's on the top, above where you would see the hammer in an SA revolver (BGs are DA Only). The design of the release is also awkward. Supposedly the placement is so that lefties and righties could both access it. Well, I shoot with both hands, so that doesnt matter to me ;) But it's not really the location that bothers me but how flat it is. Makes it difficult to push forward. Otherwise, this is a perfect gun for CC! Hoping as I break it in that cylinder release will get easier. Oh and this does have the laser which is very easy to align.

    This is an excellent choice, for concealed carry, small lightweight, and has the punch of a 38, the added laser makes this deal that much better.
