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

I am very fond of my EAA .357 Windicator, best $250 for a brand new gun I have ever spent

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...

I say get a Charter or A Ruger sp101 because they are made in the USA. But that is just my 2 cents.

I have liked every Taurus product I've ever bought and my lone Rossi 461 (2" .357) has been great as well. I like the Rossi beause of the six in the cylinder.





I'm waiting for one of these, though. I like the look and concept.

I love my SP101. Nice and solid.



You might want a spur on the hammer though if you're not worried about it snagging.

Not sure of how cheap it might be. Which I think its not, but personaly I love the feel and look of the Lady Smith's.

My windicator had a issue with not wanting to release the cylinder sometimes. I sold it w while back guess i should have played with it more as i kinda miss it now....

Does it have to be a new gun? If not, a S&W isn't out of the question. I bought a great S&W 640-1 (pre-lock .357 J-frame, concealed hammer) for less than $500 last year. A fantastic carry piece.
