My vote is for the 642. I have a late 90's vintage 642. It has been carried a lot, and the finish has held up nicely. Don't know if they changed it on later models, but I've had absolutely no problem with the finish peeling. It looks almost as good as new.
"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles." Col. Jeff Cooper, from The Art of the Rifle

I'd take a standard no-lock (if possible) 442 or 642 and some HKS speedloaders. Moonclips are too delicate for everyday carry. Correct if I'm wrong but current production grips don't accept speedloaders very well. So, I'd also buy a set of Hogue Bantam grips (they work 100% with HKS speedloaders).
