    Now that was just funny right there...LMAO. Ruger SP 101 is a great choice. i haven't heard anything negative and highly recommend it.

    My Smith Model 60 had enough grip for me to get 3 fingers on (though you might consider it a 2-1/2 finger grip). Check with Hogue, Pachmayer, and (if you go Smith) the S&W website for different grip options.

    X2, I like mine, but it may push your definition of light weight when comparing to the non-steel snubbies.

    357

    At least check out the Ruger LCR 357. I just picked up one for summer carry. Comes with stock Hogue grips which are quite awesome,a smooth trigger,and only 17oz.

    How well does that short grip handle with .357 rounds going through it?

    Quite nicely.

    The hardware is the same, but the software is vastly different.

  8. +1 on the LCR .357. The Hogue Tamer grip is very comfortable. 158g non +p .38s are very light, the 125g +p snap pretty good and with the .357 loads (only shot a few) you won't shoot a whole box at the range, that's for sure. We have 2 LCR .357's......one for the wife, one for me. She's 5'1", 105 and shoots the .38s thru hers very well. I thoroughly enjoy shooting mine with the non +p loads. The trigger stages easily, increasing accuracy beyond what I thought possible with a snubbie. By the way, MY LCR (no .357's thru it yet) is for sale/trade......I'm looking to fund a Glock 30. PM me if you're interested.

    Pretty well I must say.Of course its a lot more snappy than the .38"s, but with .357"s it performed alot better than I expected. The Hogue grips help alot and the trigger is about the best I have experienced in a double action only revolver.Helps alot with accuracy.

    I am on a budget, but am willing to "budge it" a little if I find the right one. (And can get away with it..... wife-wise.)
    IMHO look at an LCR. Not a full grip, but try it. For the wife, have her try an LCR in .38. When wife wanted a new weapon we went to a store that has a range and rents guns. Wife picked out Glock she was interested in, tried it, tried a different Glock, still not a happy person. I handed her my LCR to try and she forgot the Glocks. Tried a few pistols and revolvers, but left with a new LCR.
