My first CCW gun was a snub nose Airweight. Great gun and a great gun to carry. In my opinion, a snub is one of the best carry guns out there. They are plenty accurate, reliable and the .38 will get the job done.
Small autos also make very good carry guns and I have a Ruger LCP and a Walther PPS. Both are reliable and easy to carry as well.
It really comes down to what you are comfortable with. I grew up with revolvers and eventually started getting into autos and now carry an auto most often.
If a snub is calling to you and you are comfortable with it, by all means give it a go.
