Wow, I was thinking I wanted a revolver in .38 special, but after reading this, I think I'll see what's out there in .40 S&W.

I carry a 38spl Taurus Mdl 85 as backup to a glock 23. It also works when I can't carry the Glock.

I load it with Federal +p 158gr Gold Dots semiwadcutter hollow points with the Nyclad coating. Didn't see this load in the table, but would think it would be closer to the magic 50.

The snubby fills a special niche. In very close quarters, the snubby can be jammed into an adversary's torso, delivering a devastating wound, literally pumping clothing, powder, etc. into a torso. Automatics are not suited for this maneuver, since they could be pushed out of battery.

Visit the range, try em out, carry as much gun as you can.

The Charter Arms Charter 2000 Undercover is rated a best buy at Gun Tests, and at just $259 is in my price range. The hard part in NYS is being able to get your pistol permit in the first place. So far I am content to defend w my Mossberg 500 with pistol grip.

I'll have to check out that +p ammo.
