I've wanted a 442 for a while to supplement the large and heavy G29 for concealed carry. It's not too bad to have the G29 in the winter when you're wearing a coat and heavier clothes, but it sucks for spring/summer carry, and anytime you don't want to feel like you've got a brick hanging off your belt. So, I called up my favorite local store and asked if they had a 442 in stock. They did. I headed down with Laurel this morning to make my purchase. When we got there I was fondling the 442 when Laurel spotted the 340PD sitting in the case. She asked the counter guy if she could play with it, and then remarked how light it was. To make a long story short, she and the counter guy talked me into it. I'm kind of afraid to shoot full power .357 through it. S&W says it weighs 12oz. I weighed it at 11 5/8oz on my digital kitchen scale.
