    I've got two SP101s and love them, and I'd recommend a Ruger LCR. I'm not too familiar with S&W revolvers but they are of good quality too.

    If I were gonna carry a revolver, I'd pick this SP-101. Plain and simple.

    S&W 642. No need for a snub to be the size or weight of the Ruger 101.

    I have an LCR .38. Great gun. If I had it over I might get the 357 just to have the option. I carry it in either a remora or CB super tuck. I have been very pleased

    I see you are a new poster. Welcome to DC. We are a supportive, diverse group. If you want to plug into a variety of experience, interests, and opinions you came to the right place.

    All steel S&W J-frame is my preferred wheel gun where weight and compactness are high on the list of requirements. I have three (in addition to an Airweight), and prefer the 3 inch ones. The extra inch and steel frame makes them noticably more shootable to me and are just as concealable except for pocket carry which I do not care for. I realize they make 'em lighter and ultra lighter but at 21 ounces with a good belt I am not conscious of it's presence.

    While I am an ardent old S&W advocate, their new so-called BODYGUARD (not to be confused with the Model 49 Bodyguard) made from recycled sardine cans, toothbrush handles, and second rate laser is an abomination in my not so humble opinion. I do conceed it will go "bang", so if that price range is your limit, I would never say "never".

    Ruger's SP-101 is a quality handgun, but is too light for heavy work and too bulky & heavy for light work to suite me. If I were going the Ruger route I would hold out for a Speed-Six. I hold Ruger's LCR in the same regard as S&W's new BODYGUARD.

    My .02, FWIW, others MMV.

    If you want a nice, compact belt carry revolver the Ruger SP101 is fantastic, it's not for pocket carry though. I carry mine in a Occidental leather pancake holster with a High Noon Rock Steady belt. Works great, and its invisible with a loose untucked shirt over it.

    My current revolver carry is either a S&W36 or a Taurus 85UL. I'd like to chop the barrel on my Ruger Security Six 4" to a 2" or 2.5" for carry. Out of them the little Taurus is my favorite that I own right now.

    But if I was going out and buy a different one it would be a LCR, SP101, or one of the S&W-PD revolvers, more than likely a .45acp.

    Chiappa Rhino (comes in 2-4 or 6 inch barrel and either .357, .40 or 9mm)
    Chiappa Firearms

    While is not a great looking weapon the big plus is due to its design it has a very low recoil and flip.

    Excerpt from American Rifleman review:
    There’s no doubt that the lower barrel axis of the Rhino reduces muzzle rise and contributes to a more controllable revolver. The recoil is still there but is driven straight back into the palm of the hand. You’ll feel a bite with full-power .357 Mag. loads, but muzzle rise is so minimal you’ll first think you’ve had a misfire or even a squib load. The speed at which you can aim follow-up shots with this revolver is nothing short of astounding.

    Another vote for the SP-101.
