This is my second gun, a Smith & Wesson Performance Center 642. It is a 38 snub-nosed revolver that takes 38 special, ammo. I wanted a revolver and this is it. If you look at all the reviews on youtube of it, you will see that the reviewers love it and mention that it has a kick (recoil) to it. It has an excellent trigger pull thanks to the Performance Center at Smith & Wesson. However, as all the reviewers mention, it does have a kick. I'm going to the range this week for my 4th time with the 642.
