The Smith and Wesson J-Frame Airweight may be one of the best guns for CCW.  I carried one as a backup gun for years as an LEO.  From the factory they are a little rough, but can be smoothed to be a wonderful gun.  Also, new models come with the front sight pinned, making them a great candidate for XS Big Dots.
