I'm a Smith guy pretty much in DA guns...a Ruger guy when it comes to SA's. That said, I think you'll find either of the aforementioned Smiths a perfect pic for a CCW choice. Good defensive rounds are available for either and Smith's warranty is gold plated if you ever need it. The Ruger LCR is OK, but in my humble opinion, is Fugly. I haven't tried one, but do have considerable trigger time with both of the Smiths mentioned. Best Regards, Rod
