I have a lot of J frames, but this is my new favorite. It's lightweight and easy to conceal. The trigger pull is smooth and the recoil is manageable. I love the way it looks too!

I've been a Smith & Wesson fan for a long time, and I have to say that this is the best J frame Smith I've ever owned. The M438 is lightweight and easy to conceal, but it packs a punch. It's my go-to gun when I'm going out on the town.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago and I really is Smith & Wesson M438. It's a great gun for the price. I've had it for about two months now and it has been working flawlessly. I was looking for something that was reliable, easy to use, and didn't cost too much money.
