      That's not a hard question. Smith & Wesson J-frame .38, enclosed or shrouded hammer. Of the three choices, steel/aluminum/titanium, aluminum is probably the best compromise, titanium is only for serious masochists (like me). Steel is easier to shoot, but harder to carry in a pocket without dragging your pants down.

      Second choice, Taurus copy of the Smith & Wesson.

      As milquetoast pointed out, you can't go wrong with a j-frame size .38. But you must take into consideration the build of your body. I'm 5'8" 175 lbs. and although I carry quite a few different handguns, I am most fond of my S&W K frame Model 19. I have the ole' "narrow waist,broad shoulder" build and can conceal most duty sized handguns as easy as I can a J frame. So take in to account your build and body size when making your selection as well as what type of holster you're going to be using. I prefer IWB (inside the waistband) holsters to all else but that's me. Good luck to ya'.

      My own choice is the Smith & Wesson Model 19 Combat Magnum in 2 1/2" barrel and stocked with Eagle Secret Service grips:

      I am with you on this one Bob. The M-19 is my all time favorite carry revolver. I did carry a lot of different J-frames and Colts also as back then I done a lot of trading.

      Don't forget about the Ruger SP101 (or the GP100 for that matter).

      Revolver

      Don't forget about the Charter Arms .44 Bulldog, or the Taurus 5 shot
      .44 spl. The .44 spl. is an excellent cartridge!

      Bottom line: find a gun that fits your hand, because you will be able to
      control it better than one that doesn't fit.

      Good luck and have fun looking for a new gun!
