    For carry, is the S & W 640 a smart buy? I'd like to have a minimum 3" barrel. Any others I should consider (in a revolver)?

    i have a 640 .357mag centennial model ,2 1/8 inch barrel

    no hammer to snag on ,and you could shoot through a pocket ,or purse for the ladies

    it is the little one of course

    The J frame Smith & Wesson is made for carry. Good choice for concealment.

    gpostal,
    Thanks for posting the pics. Makes me wanna go out and buy, buy, buy! Does the 640 come in a 3" barrel?

    shooter45,
    Thanks for your insight. What are some other S & W models that are considered J frames? Thanks

    I own a S&W J frame Air weight hammerless, for back up. Good pocket gun. and as postal says, you can shoot through a jacket and not have to worry about the hammer snaggin on material.
    You can shoot +p's through it also.
