Get a J frame and don't look back. It will be the best choice you've ever made. They're accurate, reliable, reliable, and, did I mention reliable. Five shots, add two 6 round speed strips, you're pack'in 17 rounds in your pocket. If that's not enough ammunition, you're living in the wrong neighborhood.
Good Luck and good shooting.
The best defense is a good offense, and I'm really offensive.
