Charter arms make one but it has a spurred hammer. My charter arms is a .38 sp but I was thinking of getting one for my fiance.

38's still a good reliable round with an easy kick.

Don't mess with .22 for PERSEC, if you don't hit em in the right place you'll just piss em off.

I'm 100% with 7.62 on this .22 will either kill them & leave with facing the whole "you were a pro at this or else you wouldn't have taken a head shot" or simply have it taken away from you & be in worse situation then you started with

When it comes to handguns it's not a bad idea sometimes to look at LEO's to steal ideas from & they often use a .38 as a backup because of its compact size & knockdown combo.... .32 & .38 is like the connection between the both world

The Ruger LCR has the best out of box trigger on the revolver market.

I would recommend the LCR as well. Get the 357 because it is slightly heavier so less recoil with the 38 rounds. Then just carry it with the 38s. This is what my wife does who was recoil shy also. In the LCR the recoil is very manageable with those grips, more so than the S&W. My wife shot 200 rounds the other day at the range with it and had a blast. She was hesitant at first, but once she started she had a lot of fun. Some people will disagree with me on this, but I recommend shooting while slowly walking forward if your really recoil sensitive, as it takes your mind off the recoil. You won't be very accurate, but you can get confident in your ability to handle the recoil.

Although its a great idea to shoot & move to add to what kalboy16 said before you do that you should practice the recoil anticipation drill, because if you can get that out of the way recoil will always come as a surprise & you won't have that final clench( so to speak) added to your grip, which is the leading human error that causes a miss... The only way I've always been trained was to add a pause in all movement during the trigger pull, the better you get at it the less it'll look like you are stopping....

The LCR wins the thread.

So I did a good bit more research today, and I've narrowed down what i want and what's more likely to acquire financially. lol I want the 1st place Ladysmith(drool!) or the 2nd place LCR357, but I'm willing to settle for a S&W 638 airweight. and I'm really considering the NAA mini revolver. Looked at some of the options on the website. If saving up for school gets in the way, I will at least get a mini to feel safer leaving class at night next to the unsafe neighborhood(s).
