    Lots of good choices to be sure.
    I'd still take a 64 over any of them.

    WA doesn't restrict what you can carry.


    OP, buy either the 64 or 10 with confidence. Then buy a good holster and a couple of Safariland Comp2 speedloaders. Personally, I would get the 64, but I already have a 10-5.


    Where in WA are you?

    If you own a 3-4" Smith 64 or 65 (.357 Magnum version) you will never NEED another personal defense gun for the rest of your life. They are the gold standard.

    I REALLY want a 3" 64 or 65 badly!
    These can be a little more pricey for that bbl length, especially the 65.

    No doubt, the "K" frame platform is versatile.

    The 3" 65 is a regular carry, the 4"18 makes a good .22 "trainer"
