FYI, Charter is coming out with a concealed carry 9mm revolver this winter. It won't use the stupid moon clips which is what I've been waiting for 8)
The .45 acp and .40 S&W should be released this fall previous to the 9mm. X
The Ruger SP101 may be more expensive than either Taurus or Rossi, but it's built like a tank and should last forever. You can also fieldstrip it easily, unlike other brands. If you don't like the SP101 (or its price tag) I would have a look at the Charter Arms.
I have an EAA Windicator --$229 at GM-- I have shot probably 30 or so .357 and 200 .38spl through it--it aint pretty, but it has never had an issue going "bang"...I got the snubbie, but really wanted the 4" one...YMMV...
here is mine...
