Agree with some others, I had a S&W Model 13 and in a moment of stupidity sold it
I would agree, a nice pre-lock Smith K frame with a 2 to 3 inch barrel would have you covered. Don't know much about the Ruger SP101 or GP100 but they may be an option as well. Oh, and if you can find an old Colt Detective Special that would be nice, but I would be concerned with parts etc.?
