.38 Snub - Perfect Everyday Carry Gun?

642 in a kydex pocket holster
Practically any handgun can be an EDC (everyday carry gun). Some people carry a full sized 1911 and others carry a .25 mouse gun. For some, it's about concealment and for others it's about what caliber they are most comfortable carrying. I wasn't a fan of .38 SPL snubbies until I shot a few. You can't beat the .38 SPL when it comes to size and caliber. The aluminum frame models with barrels less than 2" weigh around 15 oz and fit in your front pant's pocket with ease.
Revolvers take a little getting used to if you're not familiar with them. The trigger is long and heavy compared to pistols. Just like pistols, the key is to learn to take up the slack in the trigger. The grip makes a huge difference in perceived recoil. The stock grips are usually the most concealable but are the harshest. All of the Pachmayr grips feel great but much harder to conceal. You can shoot respectable groups with snubbies at 3-7 yards. Note that note all snubbies can handle +P ammo.

The S&W 642 and 442 are great choices because of their reliability and durability. The 642 is 'hammerless' DA and the 442 has a shrouded hammer for SA/DA. Both can be had for a great price. You can get them brand new for under $399. I've seen them on sale as low as $329!!
