    I miss my 442, was a great little gun.

    I like my Snub 19, but it is not really the same thing.

    Nice! Let us know how you like it. I'm kicking around picking up a J-frame for pocket carry.

    Nice! I think you'll like it. I have the 642 and carry it as a backup gun on-duty. They're surprisingly accurate if you do your part with the trigger.

    I love my 642 and the Bianchi model 75 is a great leather holster for it.

    Thanks for all the comments everyone! I love carrying it when I want something small and light. I don't even notice it is on my hip.

    I never leave home without mine. Almost always have a 1911 on my right hip, but I always have a 442 in my left pocket.

    TKR, what do you think about her, so far? How many rounds?

    I'm also *seriously* thinking about the 442. As with the others here, it's among a couple of pocket-revolvers that I'm currently considering for winter "jacket pocket carry."

    In the last class I took, I've come away with the lesson that my carry autoloaders do not function reliably when shot out of the front pockets of something that I'd typically wear for most winter days (a fleece/sweatshirt).

    Nothing like a shrouded J frame. You can fire 'em through your trench coat pocket without snaggin' the hammer. Nice pistol.

    I have a 442 that sees daily use as a BUG and for carry in the home/yard. I just bought a satin nickel 442, but don't have it in yet.
