    A friend of mine who was on the Orange, CA police force back in the 70's grabbed a suspect's 1911 just as he was firing and caught the web of his hand between the hammer and the firing pin and saved both his and another officer's bacon. With as light as most 1911 triggers are his timing was absolutely perfect.

    You can not go wrong with the S&W, which model is just personal taste. I do prefer night sights, on a snub they still do nothing for range but do everything for low light stuff. The .357 is by all reports painful but .357 could be carried when needed. in a speedloader or speed strip. If you have to go to a reload you are goign to obviously need somehting a little stronger than .38 +p. If you have the money, the 340 would be my bet.

    ...and probably the most popular carry gun ever.

    That works with any hammer operated pistol, revolver or semi. The Secret Service trains for that and has since.....

    However, many of the new semi's (SA XD series) don't have hammers.

    i would look for a used model 36 and/or model 60. hard to beat the older s&w wheel guns. and if you don't like it, you don't have a load of $$$ in the gun.
