    If "carry" means "kinda sorta covered up by a shirt tail when in rural or wilderness areas" then an N-frame is fine.

    If you really need to be discrete, then the K-frame is a better choice, in my opinion. You can get away with a GP100 or L-frame depending on dress and such.
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream, but these days I'm here for the revolver and epidemiology information.

    Never having fired, held or even seen in real life I kinda dig the PC scandium snubbie.



    But, I'd just get a S&W model 10 skinny barrel 4" and slick it up. Skinnies have much better sights.

    I took my 6" skinny out shooting yesterday and was reminded-yet again-of how easy they are to shoot very accurately.

    That thing is a kinetic bullet puller
    I shot the PX4 before it was cool.

    Quoted for truth. If it's .38+P on the menu, you will find the K frames much to your liking.

    3" Ks (I've always thought of the 65 as the pinnacle), Ruger's fixed sight GP100 (1753 is bad ass), and Colt's King Cobra are all in the right ballpark for me. If I had to buy a new gun I'd go with the Ruger.

    An N-Frame Smith 357 is a good first revolver IF you’ll use it mostly on the range. Concealing revolvers is different than concealing autos. Not necessarily harder, just different. Your limiting factors are cylinder bulk, adjustable sights, and the hammer spur.

    Save full-snort 357s for hunting. Hot 38’s are fine for everything else, which probably makes the K-frame a better option for your stated uses.

    Indeed, that's why stainless or nickel. I've never carried a Glock, so I can't make a comparison.

    @jetfire, quick followup: does that include hot .38s?
