    Which would you carry, and how (what kind of holster and grips and reloading mechanism)
    Smith & Wesson Model 10, 4''
    Smith & Wesson Model 64, 4''
    Smith & Wesson Model 67, 4''
    Ruger GP100 (.38 Spl blued) 4"

    IMHO 4" is too big for CCW. My choice 2 1/4" .357 Ruger SP101 DAO IWB with Trausch grips packed with 135GR Speer GDHP "short barrel".

    I'd take a pencil barreled M10 or 64 any day of the week. The GP in .38 is too heavy for a concealed carry gun though I would carry a .357 version just for the additional power. the adjustable sights on the M67 do not work for me on a carry gun, either.

    I too carry a Ruger SP101 2.25" in 357 Mag with Speer Gold Dot 125 gr.

    Cut the barrels off to 3" or less and we'll talk. I'd tend to the M10 or 64 in that group. A 2" M10 is a light, easy carry IWB package. The 4" tube is just a little long for sitting in car seats and such, pokes down a bit too far for my tastes, just that extra inch.

    SP101 it is!

    The 2.25" bbl is best for CCW. Gives you the option of the Speer .38 like the others said, or moving up to CorBons 110gr .357. Low flash, manageable recoil in the sturdy little Ruger, and even more power!

    Hoffners makes a great revolver IWB holster-the Ultrux Mirage (www.hoffners.com). Holds it canted forward high and flat with the butt tight to the body for maximum concealment and the cylinder above the belt line for comfort. Has a trigger cover/lock and tension adjustment for security. a slightly puffed tucked shirt hides it anywhere behind the mid-line on my strong side.

    You might consider the Crimson Trace Laser Grips. Smooth, hard polymer grip that won't snag plus the benefit of quick emergency sight acquisition.

    You'll be comfortably prepared for any eventuality!
