Get a Shield instead.

Don't buy before you shoot, if you can.

Well, I have and carry both. If I could only have one? Yeah, I would probably go with the M&P.

The 642 is a staple firearm.

Hell no!

All depends on what you use the weapon for.  The M&P9c is not really a pocket carry gun.  The 642 is.  The M&P is a better belt gun (more capacity) than the 642.  I'm gonna go with the standard ARFCOM line and say "GET BOTH!".

No kidding. I love my snubbie.

A S&W 642 is a light pocket gun you can easily carry in your pocket with a  cheap Uncle Mike's pocket holster, even with shorts and no belt.

I have an M&P 9C as well, but it's not really possible to pocket carry.  You need an IWB holster and heavy duty belt.  

The guns serve two different roles IMO.

The M&P9c can be pocket carried but surely is about as big as pants pockets will allow.  If I found myself in a dangerous situation I'd much rather have the 9c for capacity and ability to get shots off quickly.

I've wrestled with this, and "can" pocket carry a G26 or M&P 9C, but you have to be very selective on pants and it's still a very tight fit even with front pockets that can accommodate these guns.

I compare it to the footage of the C-130 taking off of an aircraft carrier.  It's possible, but really stretching it.

I sometimes pocket carry my Kahr CW9 (similar in size to a Shield) I just have to use shorts with roomy pockets.
It is primarily a summer carry gun.
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 5:13:31 AM EDT
No, I have a 442 and a G26. Their different shapes lend themselves to different methods and positions of carry.

Absolutely , old school, round ,out of date but just so right .

Keep the 642 and get one of the mini 9s if you must .

Track which gun gets carried and shot the most . I believe for most folks the "new" gun will start out in the lead (we like our toys) but somewhere down the line you will be falling back to the round gun.

I have confidence in my 642 and confidence in my ability to grab it and get off a string of shots where I need them . Yes the small 9s have a bit more firepower but in my book getting off that good string of hits is what is going to save the day

Small Smith Revolvers are great carry pieces.
