Is there a good revolver to consider? Like shooting them but every single one of the carry size Iíve dealt with had a terrible trigger.

Itís been my experience that Smith and Wesson has decent double action trigger pulls.
Iíve owned their Model 60 -.357mag, Model 66 and Model 686. All three had smooth trigger pulls.
The trigger pull on any quality revolver can easily be made smoother by a gun smith by polishing the hammer, sear and trigger.

Check out Ruger's LCR line. The center-fire models have very good triggers. They can be had in a variety of calibers, barrel lenghts, and with or without exposed hammers.

The Kimber revolvers I have shot have good triggers. Not quite as good as my S&W from the performance center but dang good. Could eaisly lay a dime on the topstrap and keep it there through the double action trigger pull

I always thought the Smith 442 had a decent DA trigger, but the last one I handled was made in 1993. I don't know what the newer ones are like.

The 442 is one of my wife's carry guns. I think the trigger is fine and it's only a few years old.

When I feel nostalgic, I carry the SW 360 PD with a few strips in my pocket. Decent trigger, always goes boom.

Both can be had sans lock.

I often conceal carry my S&W Model 66-2 with a 2 & 1/2" barrel in .357 Magnum. I have in the past concealed carry a S&W Model 42 Centennial. An easy to carry speed strip in my pocket provides extra rounds of ammunition.

The gun store has been supposed to get me a colt cobra but that hasnít happened yet. Looks like I am looking for a new option too.

I have a Colt Cobra (new model), and it does have a great trigger. Both in single and double action.
