I have the S&W 642. It has a completely concealed hammer. I can not snag on anything. Several companies make a laser for it. My wife has one in 22 mag with a laser. It works great for her.

I have a Bodyguard. 38+p. It's light and very concealable. The laser came standard, but won't help much without a trip or three to the range. The long, DA only trigger pull takes getting used to. Took me a while to get comfortable with a little gun.

My wife and I are talking about getting a revolver as a joint Christmas present. I kinda like the bodyguard, because it is light and easy to conceal.

I own it with the C/T grips. My hand still hurts from shooting 110gn. Yesterday with gloves it hurt. I'm no wus I was just practicing , I don't expect to be wearing shooting gloves when the bad guys come. Practice a few bare handed but play with it with gloves. Last week I was shooting 158s I ended up with 2 pair of shooting and one biking glove and I was still hurting and flinching. Sound advise get the hogue tamers instead of c/t you will thank me.

Ruger SP101 3" in 327 Fed Mag is my daily carry gun in a OWB holster. I get 1422 fps with 449 fpe from my hand loads using the 100 grn Hornady XTP bullet. Not to sloppy for a 32. And it doesn't have near the recoil of a 357.

I've been carrying this lately , S&W 627 pro 4" . It's a bit big but 8 shots of .357 mag is worth it .

442/642 are tough to beat

I have an LCR .38 for my personal carry, and I think it's just perfect. Lightweight, easy to shoot, and it will do what I need it to do. Good choice.

Agree with magnumman. I don't think you can go wrong with one of those two choices. I bought my wife a Charter Arms Pink Lady and we had a very rough beginning with it, but after a trip back to the factory and breaking the hideous trigger in a bit, things have improved. Was it worth saving $25 instead of getting the S&W....not in my opinion.

I might have to take a closer look at those two models.
