Carried by those knowingly going into harm's way as well as honest citizens wanting a small but potent "ally", Smith & Wesson's Airweight revolvers have been a popular choice for both experienced users and neophytes for decades. With the nationwide increase in lawful concealed carry, more people are viewing the Airweight snub with extreme interest.

This book is a user's manual and was written with a focus on understanding the little snub's characteristics as a self-defense tool. Both strong and weaker points of the design are covered. Detailed range evaluations are provided with 130 black-and-white photographs accompanying 138 pages of text. Other areas of concern include chapters on:

  • Why Choose a Revolver?
  • What About "Firepower"?
  • Grips for Airweight J's
  • .38 Special Airweights and +P Ammunition
  • Standard Pressure .38 Special Ammunition
  • Pro's and Con's of Pocket Carry
  • Comparing Snub Ballistics of the .38 vs. .357
  • Stopping Power
  • Practice When Ammo is in Short Supply

Detailed descriptions and range evaluations on S&W Models 37-2, 638, 442 and 642 are all included and they are compared and contrasted one to another. This book seeks to provide information on all aspects of actually carrying the Airweight J long-term and effectively using it if necessary.
