    Definately keep it...The J-Frames take some time to get the rounds to go in the location that you want...Get some WWB 130 grain target ammo and get a good practice/training regiment goin and the 442 will grow on you to the point - you will never leave home withought it...

    I've got one. Had my gunsmith do a minor slick on it ($50) & it works fine for me. Added Crimson Trace lasergrips & I'm good to go!

    I also have one and it functions and shoots just fine from my standpoint. The double action is smooth. I don't try to take 50 yd shots with mine, so at self-defense ranges, I can hit what I need to. The biggest negative I see with the 642/442 models is the ability to use speed loaders quickly. The cylinder just doesn't flip open far enough for a quick reload.

    I figure I'll dry-fire mine a few bazillion more times and that should help out with the trigger pull. Besides, I didn't buy that thing to shoot targets 'fer sure.
