I have the 2" SP101 and it weighs 25 oz empty, 28 oz loaded.That is 2x the weight of the LCR. If you want a 357 get the SP101. If you want a 38 spl get the LCR. I am looking at one for myself. The LCR has the best trigger of the bunch.

I bought a little S&W 637-2 a while back. I've been nothing short of impressed with it. It shoots very well, is +p rated, and I can drop it in my pocket and it's so light that I almost forget it's there sometimes.

well, technically it doesnt, there are a few [very few] double action revolvers that load one at a time with the loading gate [colt lightening, i think]. there are several single action revolvers with swing-out cylinder [eg: ruger blackhawk]

single action and double action have to do more with the triggers in relationship to the hammers.

I own the Ruger LCR and the Smith 438 Airweight - both similar snubnose. I like the SP101 but just bought the LCR instead. The SP101 I'm sure is a more comfortable gun to shoot since it is heavier and larger ... and it has a longer barrel making accuracy a little better. And it looks great - stainless steel.

But I would think the 101 would be harder to carry than the small Smith 438 or the Ruger LCR. I'm not sure about your Model 36 and 37. I'm guessing they are larger framed guns like my Smith model 41.
Is your 101 smaller than those two others you have?
I'm curious about your carry situation with the SP101 --- because I like it so much. It is a potential for me - if I continue this collecting craze - which is crazy!

Those two small revolvers I have can be pocket guns - they are so small.

Hear good things about the lcr. I think the sp101 is a fine shooter. Not my main carry piece but it is solid, smooth and a pleasure to operate.

Can't say much about Ruger, but I chose a S&W 638 to have the option of SA and can't praise it enough as a pocket gun. Only con I've run into is buying a crimson lg405 that I thought was a full wrap-around stock as they sort of describe - it's not and has lousy plastic side panels - when I emailed crimson they said so sorry and that was it. It really screwed up the feel of the grip, but guess I can live with that since it's easier to put the dot on them than try for a sight picture in fast action.
My next look will be at the S&W 640 or 649 for a .357, most probably without the crimson grip laser.

I just picked up my new Ruger .327 Federal Mag, 3" ported barrel. Got it from CDNN in Tejas, had it shipped up here. Got it for $233 bucks. I love it, it shoots well, can chamber anything from a .32 S&W to the new mag. Check it out.
