Default 442-2 Returns

Through a strange quirk of fate I was able to buy back my 442-2 no-lock. It was not fired after the original sale and not a scratch on it. I had re-springed it with Wolff main and rebound for a sweet pull, and 100% reliability. What was I thinking when I sold it? Welcome home.

Glad you were able to get it back (what WERE you thinking?). I have a thing about guns that can be concealed in the pocket: love them. Do the Wolffs work 100% with every load? And with more than just a cylinderful? Can't be too careful. Congrats.

Gotta love the 442. This one is my constant buddy in retirement.

100% ignition with 5 different factory loads. About 50 rounds all together. I feel 100% confident with the gun.

It may be "lacking" in firepower, at least according to modern gun rags and those expecting a zombie apocalypse, but because of it's size and weight, I have my 442 with me much more often then anything else I own.

I wish some of my old piece would find their way home too!
The 442 is a magnificent self defense tool.

OIF2: Hi Bob, I dig that cool holster. Can't tell you how many of these suede pouches I have dug out of 'odds-and-ends' boxes for $1 or so. No one else liked them, their loss. Also in retirement, it's these or the pocket jobs for me now. Oops, forgot about the .45 derringer. Stay safe, partner.

My 442 goes with me everyday, either in my pocket or on my belt in one of my homemade holsters.
