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.

Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
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.
