I have had a similar choice to make. I went with a S&W 642 with CT laser. Conceals nicely. Sharp recoil but how much will you have to shoot it. Weighs only 15 ounces so you will forget you have it on. There are lots of good choices out there, but this works for me.

Colt Python 4", 2.5"
Sig P229 9mm

My .38 bodyguard was my first gun and has proved to be very reliable. I rarely carry it anymore because I like my odds better with my XDM .40 but it is a great little pocket gun when my clothing won't cover a larger gun and OC isn't appropriate for the occasion. I practice with .38 specials for less money and less recoil. I load it with +p when I carry it.

I have the S&W bodyguard .380 and like it a lot. I have shot the LCP. It is a good gun, but I like the bodyguard better. If you don't mind the pricetag, the sig p238 is a great pocket gun.

You sound like you are recoil sensitive if you think 38s have "killer recoil". One of the softer-shooting .38s out there is the Ruger LCR. The Hogue Tamer grips really help soak up some of the felt recoil. You also may want to go with an all-steel .38, like a S&W Model 640 or a Colt Detective Special.

Lcp, the bodyguard sucks.
It's a real jam session

It's better to prevent a crime, than to punish it.
