I carry a 642-P but my favorite is the S&W 640. The mechanism is simply smoother IMO on an all steel variant.
640 with 305 Crimson Trace grips - if you will carry it on the belt like I do for my primary.
340 M&P with 405 Crimson Trace grips - if it will be carried in a belly band, pocket, or under a sport coat in a "City Slicker" shoulder rig from Ken Null (like I do for my BUG).
Hard to beat a less expensive 38+p model if you don't feel the need to go .357 magnum.
