I know I want a VERY small revolver for concealed carry, but I don't want it to be "airweight". I'm a small person as it is, so I need something that I can carry on me, not in a purse..

thanks everyone =)

How about one of those little Bond Arms guns ? I'm not very familiar with them but I'm sure they have a website.

Smith & Wesson 640, or a Model 60 with a short barrel. The Lady Smith is a Model 60 with wooden grips, but I'd rather have rubber to absorb recoil. These are available in .38 & .357; the .357 will chamber the lower-recoil .38 special cartridge. These are full weight guns. Being small-frame revolvers, they take practice to shoot well, but I can't think of a better all-around small carry gun.

Taurus makes copies that a lot of people swear by too; the ones I've held had smooth triggers as well.

Or are you thinking even smaller?

North American Arms (NAA) makes a series of very small revolvers which use 22 magnum ammo. Not the most powerful round around but it will fill the bill.

My wife carries a Ruger SP101 .357. Definately not a "lightweight"

You can look for something chambered in the 32 Mag. I think Charter Arms and Tarus have something in that caliber. It's not a 38 but not a 22 either.

S&W 640 would be the way to go I think. You shouldnt have any problem finding one to "play with" at your local gun store.

I'll take the slightly heavier ancient model 36. Much easier to control and just as easy to hide. Plus no lock that can/has lock up on you like the new S&W's.

Try a KelTec .32 or the P-3AT (.380). My wife has a Glock-26, but prefers carrying the KelTec .32. Easily slips into ANY pocket.:yup:

All steel J frames

There are plenty of all steel J frames out there to meet your requirement for "no airweights". Here are two candidates - a blued model 36 and a stainless model 60:
