9 shot revolver with hollow points. 6" barrel to insure a muzzle velocity that results in good expansion.

You might get expansion but round penetration will likely suck.

Which begs the question.......... Would you rather have someone jam a small steel rod into you 4-5 inches OR take a 1/2 deep scoop out of you with a tomato corer ?

The 4-5 inch penetration is more likely to be fatal.

I have a model 36 that looks just like your 37. It was made in 1950 something and I keep it loaded with Barnes 140 gn ammo as my living room gun. I have two speed loaders to go with it.
I had to dremel the lower front edge of the cylinder release so that the speed loader would work correctly. I also put Pachmyer grips on it for obvious reasons.
