Let's talk small revolvers, specifically in .38 special only but in reality if it's small enough to fit the bill cost wise and hit a .357 for poppa bear to plink that's fine too! (I have a 3" GP100 that suits my needs out to 200 yards just fine) Looking for DA/SA, small frame (say size of Pink Lady). I'm not concerned with color, I have a buddy who can "coate" firearms for me. My wife has small hands, she is a nurse, no callouses. With the recent custody stuff going on and dealing with a drug user on the other end she has begun to question the security while she is up at night (works nights), to and from house or errands at night. While there is nothing that has triggered this it's the pre-emptive thoughts that has her thinking.... Maybe she needs protection, even if I'm home asleep.. as in in the computer desk, by the couch etc. So what do your wifes have or what do YOU have that fits this criteria? I really want to go DA/SA route but if that's not possible then I'll settle for DA only. Brands/models help, in all seriousness please. I don't want to go to a store and stand there while looking for every model/brand like I have been then wonder if it's going to work. I love first hand opinions!!!
