I suggest one of two options.
A airweight Centennial J frame in .327 (and maybe just use .32 H&R magnums) and have a gunsmith give it a slick DAO action. I think the Ruger LCR comes in .327, right? That is another option if a snub revolver is desired.
A TCP/LCP/Tomcat .32/.380 auto. The Beretta Tomcat .32 as it has a very easy tip up barrel to load the first round (no jacking of the slide needed.)
