    I like a double action revolver most. Being you can still cock it and have the single action if you want. I have had tone of revolvers over the years. I have a 44 Rem Mag Super Redhawk with a 9" bbl that I really like to shoot but I don't all that often due to the ammo cost. I do reload for it though.

    The best overall to me though is a 357. You can do 38's if you want to practice and save a dollar or two.
    The Ruger GP 100 mentioned in TOF's post is a fantastic choice. I had one a while back but traded it to a smith. I come out ahead on the trade but I really miss that stainless GP with the 4" bbl.

    If it's me I'm not going to let cost effect too much when I'm gun shopping. I went into a shop wanting a 12 gauge I wanted to convert into a house weapon but seen the Super Redhawk and it was going out the door with me I really like shooting a 44 mag though. If you get the chance check out the Ruger wheel guns. The Blackhawks, Redhawks, or GP 100's. They are usually not as high as a Smith or Colt but they are some really nice guns.

    Like this one...mmwwaahahahhaaa

    You might have a slight problem trying to conceal it but damn it's a blast to shoot!

    MY first revolver was a Single Six. I just bought a NIB .357 Blackhawk and actually scored a couple of boxes of ammo! (See, it pays to patronize those small gun shops out in the country!) I plan on going to the range today to "deflower" the beast.

    Talking I like BOTH! ...samples:

    For long range target/hunting- SA. Much simpler and lighter for the BBL length. Less expensive too. This one is zeroed for steels at 200y w/ a 240gr HP load.
    (swirling winds in excess of 25-40 mph....sorry for the crappy groups, the stands kept blowing over/out of there rests...left paper 50y, right paper 100y )



    For combat/PD- DA. For obvious reasons.
    (first outing with these two- no excuses, lots of jerks and flyers- aint got a lot of pics of shooting/my guns so- tiz what it is.... )

    By now, after 1 and a half years I started, I forgot how to shoot SA in my DA/SA revolver...
