    I voted for double action only, I've owned a GP 100 for many years, and it runs well. Although the first gun I bought over 40 years ago was a Ruger Single Six 22 and loved the heck out of it. My only complaint was it was a pain was loading and unloading it.

    I like the ability to use both double action or single action.

    I own a S&W model 66-4



    My S&W allows both.

    I like both the double action and the single action equally well, but prefer the single action for field use.

    Trooper III a 1975 model.



    My S&W 29-8 Talo Exclusive 3" 44 magnum.



    The old stand-by, Dan Wesson 715 (357 mag)



    I do like the DW 744 (44 mag) also, it's scary accurate and has a trigger that can't be beat even by the Trooper.

    Tough question indeed

    Double action is my preferred action design just based on reload time. Of my DA collection I have 3X more S&Ws than I do Rugers. My best S&W is my Performance Center Model 627. But when forced to admit a preference I have to own up to the fact that my all time favorite - from my current collection - is my 3" Ruger SP101.

    I prefer double action or dao for carry smith # 66 and 642 or 042 respectively.
    But there are not many better ways to spend time at the range than plinking with Ruger single actions.

    for target shooting i like either my heritage arms 22 mag (stop laughing....ok ..please stop laughing) or my uberi 1873 .45 (....... why did you stop laughing?)

    for my carry i have a tauras pt 917 9mm, so there is no need for a revolver for that duty with me.

    I can't quit laughing about the Heritage 22WMR because caliber is poor choice for revolver due to volocity lose, and Taurus generally poor reliability. The Ubi doesn't quite make the offset even, but close. ;>)

    PS; I've crony the WMR in revolvers, and one automatic. The Viper drops to 1300fps range and some brands of the ammo actually drop sub-sonic.

    Also I CCW Colt DE 10mm & Sig clone of Colt Mustang 1911 style 380 for the pocket.

    i have had no problems with any of these guns the heritage is only good for around 15 yards and the wife enjoys it.

    the uberti is a bit much for me to be honest and at 40 yards i have groupings in the 12" range and that is with the 4 1/2 barrel so no complaints other then i hate the grips (would love rubber ones but oh well)

    as far as the taruas is cncerned i have put well over 4000 rounds thought in over the past 5 years with not so much as a singlle misfire or jam.

    and since i have less then $650 in all 3 of these so i have no complains what so ever. though i still chuckle at the 22 mag... that just doesn't even sound right.

    I had a Heritage and it went bang every time I pulled triger, only problem is after having 3 SA Ruger's, 1 SA Colt I discovered I can't hit crap with a SA revolver. Slow learner I guess.

    As Taurus goes I have several friends that own gun shops and none of them speak good of their reliability or quality, all three shop owners say they have higher return rate for failure then any brand they carry. One shop just stopped carrying the revolvers because of failures, another shop tells all buyers that other guns are more reliable and some even cheaper and if gun fails they contact the Taurus not them.

    I was about to buy one a couple years ago but lucky for me I got a chance to shoot one and man I could shoot it too, accurate as hell with the 4.5"(?) barrel at 25 yards. But the recoil was a killer on my wrist and next day those six rounds had hand and wrist where I could not use a key board for 3 days. But they sure be well made and pretty.

    There was three different ones of us on another forum crony tested several different calibers and gun types including 22 LR/WMR rifle and some centerfire hand guns. The 22 Magnum with a S&W M-48 that had an advertized velocity of about 1800fps from rifle was faster out of 18" rifle then 21" rifle was as I stated about 1300fps average best I remember. The Winchester Dynapoint rated 1550 IIRC from a rifle was 1075fps average out of the Smith 48 and same gun with 22LR cylinder using 22 LR CCI Stinger were faster then 3 or 4 of the WMR loads tested. I sold my S&W 48 and my frind with the Ruger has never shot WMR in it since.

    As long as it has a cylinder and says "Smith & Wesson" on the side, I'm okay with it!

    For defensive purposes DAO. For target/range I am OK with both.

    All of my double action revolvers will function as single actions too. No dao revolvers in my collection.

    I have others, but DA Rugers are my favorite.
