Some think, that the handgun feature in this article is the perfect one for women who carry. This goes out to all of you honest hard-working women out there, that believe in the 2nd Amendment and your right to bear arms. Owning and carrying a handgun isn’t as “scary” as some think. If you want to know what a REAL “empowered” woman is, just check her purse, because chances are…she’s packing heat.
When it comes to handguns for women, sometimes you just can’t beat a classic. Yes, I’m talking about the Smith & Wesson .38 special. If you are looking for a simple to use, light weight and accurate hand gun for personal protection, the Smith and Wesson .38 Special Airweight may be just what you want. But if you’re heart is set on buying a semi-automatic pistol…then by all means, find one that fits your needs. Nothing will make a would-be rapist pee his little pants more, than thinking he’s got a helpless victim in front of him, until the “victim” pulls-out a .38 caliber pistol . Believe me, when some thug stares at the business end of that gun, he’ll be SO SCARED…he’ll pee his little saggy pants !
Bass Pro Shops had this to say in their ad regarding the description of the weapon:
“The streamline, lightweight, no-snag design of the Smith & Wesson® Model 642 Airweight® makes it an ideal concealed carry double-action revolver. The internal hammer of the 642 eliminates the risk of the hammer getting snagged on clothing, holsters, or purses when drawing the weapon in a self-defense situation. The low profile, ramp front sight and the fixed notch rear sight also aid in snag-free presentation of the weapon. The 642 is double-action only, making it an extremely fast personal-defensive handgun to deploy in stressful situations, as there is nothing to remember to do except point and pull the trigger. The synthetic grips and inherently ergonomic design afford natural pointability. The Model 642 is built on Smith & Wesson’s famous J-Frame, it has a 5-shot cylinder rated for +P .38 Special ammunition.”
