I've been a customer of Bud's for years and I always get great service. The last time I ordered, I had a question about the S&am model 642 and they were able to answer my question right away. They are really knowledgeable about their products and it was nice to have someone who knew what they were talking about.

I was looking for a gun that I could use at the range and carry with me on my person. I needed something that was light, easy to use, and had a good trigger pull. This gun is perfect for what I need it for. It's not too heavy and the trigger pull is smooth.

I was looking for a gun to replace my Taurus of the same size and found this Smith & Wesson Model 642. I am so glad I did! It's so much lighter and easier to handle. The trigger is also much smoother than my old one. I am really happy with this purchase!

I bought this gun light for my Smith & Wesson Model 642 and it's been a great purchase. The light is small and easy to carry, but still provides enough illumination to see what you're shooting at. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a good gun light that won't break the bank.
