New 642 Just picked up my first S&W and a 642. I looked at the LCR as well, but after handling both, liked the 642 better. Better fit, and although the Ruger trigger was supposed to be better, I felt the 642 had better action. I bought it as a back up gun and it'll make a good night-stand gun that my wife can shoot too. I have 4 other revolvers and a couple of semi-autos. The revolvers are more like pets!
