As an owner of a S&W MP340 with the Crimson trace grips I have to say you can't go wrong with the S&W's mentioned above - I have been very impressed with thier customer service as well. However if I were to buy another small framed revolver it would probably be the Ruger LCR in .38. I am not a fan of S&W "Hilary Holes" and have been impressed by how well the LCR's seem to handle .38 rounds. I have no experience with the Charters or Tauruses out there, so I wont talk about them. For my money it would be a Ruger LCR.
