It's not just azchevy. The LCRs are well known for better triggers than the Smiths, out of the box. Love mine, got the .38 for lowest weight, best concealability. That's just me. The .357 is a good choice, too.
If you have integrity, nothing else matters.

I voted glock but I carry my G19 everyday in the Phoenix or El Paso and I conceal it in a t-shirt and shorts just fine. It is really very easy to conceal with very little clothing.

Glock 27....Im a fan of the LCR 357 also, recoil isnt an issue imo.
I went with the Glock 27. I am a big fan of the Glock series of handguns.
Here's something else to consider...keep the gun you have, and try the Smartcarry. If you don't like it, you can send it back. If it works, you spent $55 and saved yourself from having to buy another gun.
You could carry your G23 without any shirt at all, if you so chose to. I'm wearing one right now, with a Glock 30.
Wear pleated pants, and it will disappear. I wear mine to the left (I'm right handed) so the barrel has room down my left leg.
Another consideration - if your pockets will take a snubbie, they will also take a Glock 27. The Glock is heavier, of course, but has twice the rounds, less felt recoil, better sights, and a faster reload.
All your choices are good guns - will really depend on which you shoot best.
If however, there were another holster/belt solution that would make my Glock 23 a little more concealable I would certainly look into it, I just have a requirement that any holster I purchase must protect the trigger. Being easy to draw from and easy to re-holster are definite preferences as well.
You can cut a piece of plastic from a milk jug and insert it into the Smartcarry if you want additional protection for the trigger. You are not going to be able to pull the trigger from the front. I've tried (unloaded gun, of course).
Drawing is fast - no need to untuck a cover garment if you wear your shirt tucked in. You can do it one-handed (suck in your gut), and even with your off-hand (just turn the palm out). Think of it as a low appendix carry.
Re-holstering is slow, no question. I do not see a need to re-holster in a hurry.
Drawing from a seated position just requires popping up out of your seat a bit. No big deal.
Anyway, hope that helps. For the money, I'd recommend you at least try it. Good luck.
