(4 out of 5) Great Defensive weapon, tough for big hands
by from Green Bay, WI on

This 38 is terrific! Great job Smith and Wesson. Perfect as my cc, especially in my car. If 5 shots are not enough then your attacker is superman. Reliable and accurate up to 20 feet for me. The S&W is not much use in my hands beyond that. Others may find it accurate at greater distances. Pleased to have it as one of my personal protection firearms.

(5 out of 5) Better Than Expected
by from Indianapolis, IN on

The action on this is much better than I expected! My wife likes it so much I'm going to buy another one, since she claimed mine! Ordering from SOSS is a breeze and as good as it gets!
