We have two 642s in the family, both with the locks - which we keep inactivated. With the lock in the off position, is there any real difference in trigger feel, etc., between a 642 with a lock, and one without? Personally, I didn't care that much about the lock since I wasn't going to use it, so I didn't let it keep me from buying a couple of these pistols. Other than the appearance, is there something I'm missing about the function of one pistol versus the other?
"Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing." --Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791
