I've got two stainless regular Bearcats. I've thought about one as EDC, but overall length, 9 inches, is a bit long. Reloads are slow, and the Shopkeeper version is even more awkward.

NAA's mini revolvers would be a lot smaller and lighter, but one less round and even harder to reload.

After first trying a snub SP101 (ultimately too heavy and clunky), I've settled on a NAA Guardian 32. Shirt pocket size, all stainless, seven rounds, magazine reloads, 15 ounces loaded. That's nine ounces less than an empty Bearcat. Centerfire is more reliable and effective, but I'm not one of the "bigger is better" crowd; .32 ACP is enough.
