I've got a 4.5" SR-22 Ruger that fits the bill, under 18 ozs., easy to carry, and reasonably accurate. It's easier to shoot than the 3.5" gun, and the trigger is much better than my M&P Compact, though I like it's safety a lot better.

Best of all, it's reliable, and only weighs 18 ozs or so. You can easily forget you have it with you.
That's important to me.

I live in the desert so snakes might be a problem if I ran into a Mohave Green which is an aggressive rattler. Normally I just go around snakes. We do have coyotes and mountain lions. I have run into an aggressive male donkey but it was mostly bluff. I have run into a couple of unsavory characters. My trail carry is a Ruger SP101 3" 357. 1st round is shot. Next 4 are 158 grain hp.

I like the PMR-30. If I break my leg I can fire ten three round "here I am bursts."

Not a rimfire, but the .32ACP is nearly as polite as the .22. .

Classic Arms has a heck of a nice deal with Italian police turn ins. If you are serious about the Beretta and don't mind the .32ACP round, these are hard to turn down.

My Ruger single six has done a fine job for many, many years. Nothing very mean and nasty in my neck of the bushes. Snakes I just walk around. Skunks I leave to their business. Everything else seems to run away upon sighting me.

For carry in the hunting / trail mode, I use the old S&W 38 with the 4" barrel. Certainly accurate and powerful enough to TCB. Not only that, shot shells work well for that unexpected rattle snake you just stepped on. I've had it for a long time, but it does seem to be much heavier now than it once was. Go figure. When S&W released serial numbers, I did a check on this pistol I got for cheap in the 70's. Come to find out it is a pre-combat masterpiece from about 1950. They were used for service revolvers back in the day, and has the holster marks and frame stamp to prove it. Fine pistol. It certainly seems...... I'm going to keep it. ......AH
