Got my 642 today and picked up a couple boxes of Magtech and headed for the Ranch. After putting it through its paces this is my opinion. Accuracy good enough for CCW. Could hit a man easily 15 yards just by pointing it. I'm used to bouncing pop cans at 15 yards with my P90 and I can't do it with it. Recoil is manageable, but the felt recoil is greater than my P90. I am ordering the Pachmayr Decelerator grips that cover the back strap for a softer pad. Checked the fit and finish out on the gun and it is well made and no flaws. It would suffice as a primary CCW for dress on occasion but it wouldn't take the place of my P90 or P97. I'll use it as a secondary carry in my pocket or coat, and for Dress when I have to wear clothes that can't hide the P90. I'm pleased with the gun and performance, and for the size and weight, I think it's as good as there is, but its like all the small guns, you just can't compare them to the full size guns. Guess that is why I go to the extra effort to carry the P90 or P97.
