Just got a Taurus 650 with CT Lasergrips. 2" bbl, 5 rounds. Got it to replace my Taurus 850 (.38 SPL). Figured I'd use .38 SPL in 3 chambers, .357 in the last 2 just in case, and the laser might deter a crook just by the sight of it zeroing in on him!
I normally carry the S&W M&P 40, but will carry the 650 as back-up. I like the .40 round - very manageable kick, good knock-down power, plenty of ammo around since it's not one of the preferred calibers. I used to carry the Glock 23, but got the M&P 40 as I was never quite comfortable with the Glock trigger safety as the only safety.
