S&W 642 or similar, hammer or hammerless? .38+P?
I've been looking for a couple of small .38s one for me and the wife, maybe both the same for convienence, etc. Hammer or hammerless?
I've shot for ~50 years, wife a total rookie not crazy about guns but she's coming around. I'd like to control the kick for her, how about the .38 loads? Can (would) you use a regular .38 in a .38 special or .38+P?
Can a novice 5' 0" small woman handle this OK (just an opinion)?
