I have a S&W 640I snubnose. Can anyone out there recommend a good defense round. I am concerned about the speed of the round in the short barrel.

Thanks in advance.

Plus one on the Gold Dots, I use their +P exclusively in my 642.

May I recommend the Hornady Critical Defense Ammunition .38 special +P?

I use it in my S&W model 40, and it feels the same as the regular .38 special ammunition. No personal expansion data or chronograph data on it, sorry.

Using +p in a 2-ish inch barrel airweight is always a good workout for the shooting hand web.

Have you ever used the short barrel stuff? It is effing awesome. Low recoil and low muzzle blast.

They weren't kidding when they said "short barrel" specific.

I'm with you, I use the short barrel stuff in the +P. Plus, I had my 642 gone through and ported by Gemini Custom, so with the "V-6" porting I get low recoil...but the blast is impressive. Looks like V-6 fire out of the ports.:D
