I would also say the sp101 in .357Mag. And I like that it has some real weight to it - makes it nice and steady.

S&W M649 Bodyguard (Stainless).

The shrouded hammer keeps it from hanging up in your pocket, yet still allows you to shoot single action if you like.

I much prefer the added weight of stainless steel over "airweight" snubs. It definitely helps control the recoil.

Thank you for the welcome back, Boris.

Don't tell anybody, but I've owned several revolvers over the years, and usually keep at least two around the house. One full-size and a snub.

However, they're definitely relegated to backup gun status. My primary carry and home defense handguns have been semi-autos since the 1970's, and will remain so.

Default Carry gun

I at times carry a new charter Arms Bulldog 44 spcl 5 shot 2/12" bbl loaded with Hornady factory ammo, this gun is light, easy to conceal and shoots as accurate as can be, and is very dependable if the SHTF should happen

The only true "snub" nose I own (right now) is a S&W Mod 38 in .38 spec. It's agreat gun to carry around the neighborhood.

The shrouded hammer makes pocket carry much easier without losing SA function.

Hmmm.... hard to say which I like better. I have both a Model 36 and a Model 60. I carry the #60 more often because it's stainless and easier to keep clean, but the #36 has a smoother action, better trigger pull and seems more accurate in my hands. But sometimes I slap the 2 incher my Dan Wesson just for fun
