I really like, but don't have yet, the Smith and Wesson Night guard series, especially the 44 special. I think it would make a great carry gun. I have carried my 3" and 4" 629s once in a while. I really like the looks of the old Charter Arms Bulldog too.
I wish there were other good quality choices in a 44 Special or 45 Colt snubbie that won't break the bank. I may still have to save up and get one of the Night Guards.
