A 6" Stainless Steel .357 Magnum revolver. S&W 686 or GP100 are my recommends. A full size 9mm pistol. CZ-75, Glock 17, Beretta 92FS, or H&K USP are my recommends. A .22 Semi-auto pistol. Browning Buckmark or Ruger Mark II are good ones to start looking at. A 6" 44Magnum revolver. Ruger Redhawk, Super Redhawk (if scoping handguns is your thing) or S&W 629 or 29 are good pistols. I know you don't think CCW is a possibility, but things may change, or you may find yourself in a situation where it makes sense even in view of laws to the contrary. Therefore, I'm going to recommend a small very concealable autopistol. There are a ton of them out there in various calibers from .32ACP up to 9mm. That alone is probably worth it's own thread. Get something really cool. Maybe an antique like a Luger or a Lahti. Maybe something common in the movies like a Desert Eagle. Maybe a custom 1911. Just something neat that will make your collection of handguns unique.
