    Excellent review and solid points made as well.

    Good review! The holster you were promoting for the 442 is a Mika Pocket Holster which I highly recommend. I have one for my 442 and G26 (believe it or not).

    Great video! All the new guns that come out and i end up buying trying to find a replacement for my j frame 638, I end up going back to my j frame for edc. Put a spring kit in it and a desantis clip grip on it. Just shove it in the front of your pants and go out the door. Simple to use. Easy to conceal with only a T-shirt and fits comfortably for all day cary.

    What most people dont know is that the Ruger lcrโ€™s have internal locks under the grip that turns with a key just like smith ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Excellent video! Thank you. Was very informative, and entertaining.

    Okay, right off the bat I HAVE to ask! Do you have a brother who lives in California and works for the CDCR just outside of Chowchilla? Maybe a missing twin?

    Thanks for having done this comparison ๐Ÿ‘

    You were talking about 50 yard head shots with the 442. I do realize that he was not a normal man, but I saw the late great Bob Munden, shoot a regular J-Frame S&W .38 at an 8 inch balloon at 300 yards. And as usual, he made it look pretty darned easy ๐Ÿ˜€

    Where do you shoot around here?

    Excellent overview of both weapons. I own a S&W 642 Airweight and a G27 and both perform well for concealed carry duty, but the 642 is much easier to conceal. It just depends on where I am going and what I am doing.

    The biggest pro for the Glock is that you can get ammunition to actually expand in that short of a barrel. You do typically have to use +P and that will equate to discomfort, but it can still achieve that. The .38 in a snub nose like that often even at +P wont achieve expansion or will be very little expansion. However, using .38 Special wadcutters not only will reduce felt recoil in that Air Weight frame, but it will leave a perfect .38 caliber hole throughout the entire wound channel. And should it tumble, that’s actually ideal with wadcutters at times unlike other pistol ammunition where it would be undesireable.

    I am more of a revolver guy as a whole compared to semi autos but I believe I’d personally prefer the G43, though in that small of a gun I’d rather a G42 as terminal ballistics on the .380 are superior to the 9×19 in short barrels. Reload time on the Glock will be faster no matter how you look at it. I’ve seen pro revolver shooters who can speed load like nobody’s business but even they all admit the semi auto will be faster as a whole.

    I will have to admit that the J frame does carry better as I feel a lot of revolvers do. As far as velocity and energy is concerned, even with +P .38’s, you’re usually getting what standard pressure 9×19 would get in that short of a barrel. So going +P with 9×19 will produce better results. In all honesty, for shorter barrels a 9×19 will be more effective in terms of ballistics, however when you go up to a 4 inch barrel, while the 9×19 still produces better ballistics on paper, on target I’ve seen .38 Special’s do far more damage.

    Both guns would serve you well in a pinch but if you had to pick one over the other, the Glock I think would be a better choice for the reasons I listed above, but also because it has a huge after market support group in a wide array of products where the J-Frame typically just has grip or sight replacements. In terms of operation, a person with little to no gun experience know’s how to operate a revolver, but the Glock isnt really that complicated either. Rack the slide, pull the trigger. I feel with the Glock with a +1 or +2 extension for 7+1 to 8+1 capacity will easily defeat the 5 shots of a J-Frame in .38/.357. It may extend the grip area and make it harder to conceal but it’s not as difficult as people would make it out to be considering the large number of people who conceal guns like G19’s on the regular.

    I prefer j frame or Smith and Wesson 360



  14. Dino Glen on August 20, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    And I noticed you shot
    442 last. If a dude breaks into my house @ 5 feet, it’s the S&W all night



  15. jim smith on August 20, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    I might pick up one of those Glock holsters they look pretty nice

    "The south side of Chicago"๐Ÿ˜‚ me to brother. I’m showing up with a tank!



  17. Echo556 V1 on August 20, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Any new Handguns you planning on getting?



  18. Mark Fun Jones on August 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Awesome 442



  19. Captain James on August 20, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Another good video. Thanks. As an old man of 59 Iโ€™ve always had a love of quality revolvers. I own several S&W revolvers. I started to list them, but realized this is public and itโ€™s nobodyโ€™s business. All are pre Hillary Hole! I decided to never buy another another S&W of any type – revolver or semi-auto, after they capitulated and โ€œvoluntarilyโ€ added the lock back in 1990 something, forcing other manufacturers to follow suit. The only revolver I have purchased new (with a lock) since was a Taurus ultra light inTitanium. It has a lock, but it is such an awesome deep conceal gun I had to have it. I am also a Glock fan, but that is based on the fact they act like a revolver in the most important respect – when you pull the trigger they will always go boom and be ready for the next shot.

    Nice hooker gun ๐Ÿ”ซ I can fit it



  21. Hyperbolic Time Chamber Strand on August 20, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    I couldn’t decide so i bought both it worked out well i feel safe carrying either one.



  22. TRA A on August 20, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Good video ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป



  23. Var S on August 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    for somebody brand new to guns, glocks are not that good of an idea



  24. Gorilla HD on August 20, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Excellent overview of both weapons. I own a S&W 642 Airweight and a G27 and both perform well for concealed carry duty, but the 642 is much easier to conceal. It just depends on where I am going and what I am doing.

    Yeah well my J Frame has a Trump Spur!



  26. Doc Hollywood on August 20, 2022 at 8:46 pm

    I’m high AF and caught the boo let’s before you said: that’s boolets and it made me cry with laughter. Thanks man



  27. sean 0 on August 20, 2022 at 8:49 pm

    We think alike they are my main 2 carry pistols also but my jframe is the 642 no hillary hole ,wilson combat springs and trigger job ,i also carry a g19 some of the time ,I also run the critical defense 38+p plenty of power and the easiest i have found to get back on target.



  28. Stephen Kohnle on August 20, 2022 at 8:54 pm

    Good video. I agree with you on these with one exception. When I need deep concealment, I carry the 442 Pro Series but my EDC is the Glock 19. I can conceal the G19 just fine.



  29. Bradley Slackenfelch on August 20, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    A "little more" velocity?



  30. Colt10mm Security on August 20, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    I own every Glock model made in 9mm. I also own 5 different variant j-frame snub nose wheel guns and a Colt 6-shot Detective Special. Out of just those guns I mentioned, Iโ€™ll carry my Glock 43 over a 5-shot j-frame any day.



  31. Mar Aus on August 20, 2022 at 9:02 pm

    music?



  32. MrByaeger on August 20, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    Love them both , can’t go wrong with either . But a few plus’s to having a wheel gun on hand is you can arm a friend or neighbor that has zero training and they can figure it out by instinct, and just recently I injured my left arm and could not grip anything with my left hand for 2 weeks let alone rack a slide on a semi. So if you are injured and have just one good arm a revolver is a great option. However on the reload aspect, I personally don’t think most folks can pull it off under real stress short of hunkering down somewhere and having lots of time so I got to give the semi the advantage there. It’s just a simpler action.



  33. Mark G on August 20, 2022 at 9:04 pm

    thanks man.. answered all the questions i had… i have a 43, but i feel its so damn heavy.. gonna try a one of those S&W airweights.. thanks



  34. legend01 on August 20, 2022 at 9:05 pm

    Enjoy your videos!!! Fun to watch. How often do u get to purchase guns and what does your wife say when u get one? ๐Ÿ˜€



  35. And Norr on August 20, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Thanks for the video. I like both revolvers and semi-autos ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, I don’t like those revolver locks either. Most S&W Revolvers have them though except for a small number of the smaller models.
