    Depends on the task at hand, for defensive purposes, I prefer DAO, for target/hunting it's DA. Rugers are built like tanks, Smith's like Ferrari's. Guess it really depends on your preference.

    DA/SA for me. I shoot my S&W 629 and 686 in the single action mode at the range. I carry the 629 while fishing in Montana and hope I never have to shoot it in the D/A mode.

    If I'm shooting scoped 8" or 10" barrel I generally go SA about 75% of the time, 6" about 50/50 scoped or not and 2.5" and 4" 95% DA only.

    With the 2.5" barrel 44 mag as shown above I can do 6 in about 4 seconds all in 10" circle at 15 yards, with max loaded 300gr JHP that friends won't even try in their 629's for some reason. I finally got one S&W 629 guy to try it in my DW and he was floored at how light the recoil was, said the 8" barrel was like a light loaded 44 special and he compared the 2.5" barrel with same 300 grain load about same as his SS S&W 2" with a medium load.


    Here is my full sized 5" DW 1911 Bobtailed Razorback 10mm with the DW M744 in 2.5" configuration for scale.

    For daily carry and self-defense, DEFINITELY double action only. It's far too easy under extreme pressure to light off a round inadvertently with the option of single action fire (especially with elderly hands like mine). It can also, in a perfectly justified shooting, leave you open to a wrongful death or wounding suit with some lawyer claiming you negligently cocked a "hair-trigger" weapon. My Smith 640 protects me from both problems and won't snag on the draw.

    That said, I own a Smith & Wesson Model 10 that I love. And if I had to fire at an intruder, I'd still shoot double action.

    revolver preference

    I love any well-built handsomely designed revolver. For DA, I really enjoy the S&W 625 JM; in SA, my favorite is an A. Uberti 1873 Cattleman "El Patron" replica which I just picked up.

    Me too - I couldn't agree with you more.

    I like them all, but DA is more versatile.

    I like the S&W K, L, or N frames best because they have the best action for D/A shooting and a great single action pull.

    I'm a double action sort. The specific choice is Smith & Wesson K or N frames - one J frame Chief's Special - with pinned barrels. Shooting double action is twice as easy; but I prefer the original action with a choice. It's just that I shoot double action only most of the time.

    For me S&W hammerless J-Frames, in particular the Model 640 .357. I have an S&W 3" 629 Talo, 4" Model 29 and a 7 1/2" Ruger Redhawk all great revolvers, only draw back is that they're a little too heavy for everyday carry, and for self defense purposes .44 Specials are preferred. That being the case a lighter .45 auto is a better option. I bought the 29 and Redhawk because I hadda have a .44 Magnum and be the loudest kid on the block at least back then. Was tempted to buy either a .460 or .50 S&W last year but at $5.00 a round making noise was no longer a priority, and bought a 629 3" Talo instead. On the single action side I've got a Cimmaron/Uberti "Thunderer" .45 Long Colt and their "Lightning" .22, love the feel and appearance of those grips. They are in my opinion some of the best looking six guns around, without the huge price tag of an original Colt. But for everyday practicality the S&W 640 .357 for me is the best.

    Unless I change my mind any revolver I get will be a S&W J Frame & I'll try to have same grips on each of them.
    Couple reason's for this is;
    Won't have to buy several different holsters - same couple for one will fit all the others.
    Using same grips - build memory for when/if have to do a fast draw - point shoot - each should have same feel and impact point.

    Currently only have the S&W Model 60 Pro but hope to soon add the S&W Model 640.

    Have both, like both. That said, DA's are my preference day in and day out. Have a Ruger Redhawk 41mag, four S&W's, an N, L, K, and J frame, (44mag, two 357's and a 38spl). Picked up my first Colt DA the other day. An exceptional 4" Police Positive in 38spl.
