None of the above is my choice. Not because you only listed Taurus guns. I have no problem with that. In fact my choice is from another maker that gets some of the gun snob hatred as well. Charter Arms bulldog 44 Spcl.
I have a Charter as well. I've been carrying my .357 Mag Pug around lately, and like the thing. I'm a .357-a-holic.
It took some fiddling (filing down the front sight), but it carries like a champ and has excellent ergonomics, especially with Pachmayr Compac grips.
