Good price on a good gun, but FWIW I'd rather spend a few bucks more on a Ruger LCR- better sight options and a much better trigger

This gun can be purchased at Whittaker Guns for $339.99 when in stock. Everyday price at Centerfire Systems & Bud's Gun Shop is slightly better than $358.88.

https://shop.whittakerguns.com/product/430 I've never bought from Whittaker Guns before so can't give any feedback.

And Whittaker charges $13 for shipping so $339.99 + $13 = $352.99 for something that is out of stock and has been OOS for a while. So here is this deal for $5.89 more and it's in stock. For someone who wants a CCW revolver now I don't see how $5.89 is worth it to wait around

Hey, wasn't trying to start any fires on the opening Saturday of college football. Just wanted to point out this seemed to be an good everyday price on this revolver if you shop around. I also gave two other options to purchase. I guess you missed the part about Bud's having this gun for less than posted price. $356.38 CC price or $346 cash with free shipping. Then Centerfire has it for $352.99 plus shipping of also $13. So this isn't an awesome deal but a good price for a solid revolver. And guaranteed it would beat any price you could find it for local. I've ordered from both Bud's and Sportsmans without any issue. Both shipped quick.

I wasn't trying to start something, just was pointing that out about Whittaker. Also, Bud's is OOS as well. Not sure about the other one

Really? Its been a few years, but when I compared the SW with Ruger, Ruger was poor quality compared to SW. The Ruger just felt cheap. But like I said that was a few years ago now, not sure if things have changed.

the LCR is lighter and has a smoother trigger. slightly less pull but it's more the friction reducing cam that makes it actually a pleasure the shoot (that, and the hogue tamer grip that comes on the gun, but you can always add one of those to the 642/442)

i don't know about the LCR feeling "cheap". it feels like a solid gun to me. the one downside is that if you are used to firing the 642/442, you will need to re-learn the trigger stroke so you don't short cycle it.

personally i have both. i don't necessarily need both but i think each one is neat in its own regard
