    RGLYONS- I have my permit and have guns that I use for carry off property. I would carry the SP101 which I do now but its too pretty to be hidden in the pocket of a coat hanging on the rack. My avatar is the one in question. Well it's pretty to me at least.

    Thanks for the info everybody. I'll start browsing. I'm going to the gun store this weekend with a buddy.

    Check out cheaper than dirt dot com. They have a few taurus 605's for about 317
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    You can get S&W 637,638 and 642 for 350.00. Taurus 85 is cheaper but their customer service stinks if you have a problem. With Taurus you have to pay shipping to them and it may take 2 months or more. If you have a problem with a S&W they send you a prepaid shipping label and most repairs take about 2 weeks. Most everyone who loves Taurus haven't had to deal with their customer service. It's worth it to me to pay a little more up front for a S&W or Ruger. I do have a Taurus pt25 that goes bang most every time. I had a Taurus 22 magnum revolver that was great but traded it for a Rossi 38 that broke after only having it for 2 weeks, that's how I found out about their c.s. They replaced the Rossi and It was traded for a Ruger 22/45.

    I like my Taurus model 85 UL. It works for me. Not had any problems.

    I was talking to my neighbor and he suggested a taurus too. I will just have to keep checking the used case every so often to check out the newest trades. I would love to have a smith but they are nowhere near those prices in my area. 400+ at best. But I'll keep looking. Thanks all.

    I highly recommend a Rossi 461 or 462. Its a snubbie, .357mag, and a 6 shot!
    I have both and both have been very reliable, no problems, and can handle the hot .357 loads without any problem. The grips really tame the recoil.
    I got each for under $300.

    Taurus 605 or 85, are both good. The 605 has been known for quite a time as a very reliable 5 - shot .357 /.38. I have the 605, and wouldn't trade it. I also have S&W's, but they are larger.

Hard to wear out and serviceable by just about any decent gunsmith in the US if it does need work. I got two of 'em a couple of years ago for $300 +/- each. Give a look at the J+G Sales (Prescott, AZ) web site - they usually have a good selection of cop guns traded in.
    This.

    J&G, AIM, etc have S&W M10's or others for under $300 fairly often.

    I picked up a Charter Arms Undercover for $230. If you're planning on carrying it in a jacket pocket then the Undercover will fit your needs (16oz). The Rugers are all much heavier and will be very noticed in a jacket pocket.

    I was not as up on those until recently. I picked one up ... for use out on the farm, and so far have been surprised by it. I especially like the easy trigger pull on the one I have.
