My wife carries the Charter Arms Undercover 5 shot .38spl. http://www.charterfirearms.com/produ...ver_73811.html
She likes it better than the small frame S&W's due to the feel and fit of the weapon. she has about 500 rounds through it, no problems.
It's too small for my hands, though. It is hard for me to fire. It also has a very heavy trigger from factory, but we've had hers lightened at a gunsmith.
