    I've got a Ruger and a Taurus - like them both, but the Taurus is my preferred revolver - if only because it's an ultra-lite. The Ruger GP101 is definitely a range gun for me.

    S&W. From .22 to .44.
    I have been shooting handguns for over 35 years, and most of my revolvers have been Smiths. Some Rugers, few Colts, few "others", mainly out of curiosity.
    Every revolver I own right now is a Smith...8 of them (or 9, I don't really remember...)

    I like the way they feel and the way they shoot.

    I love my Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag. Not Super Redhawk, just plain old Redhawk, but if I had to pick one it would be my S&W Model 57-1 41 Magnum w/6 inch barrel,nickle finish. Good muzzle velocity, flat trajectory, very managable recoil with just enough POP to get someones attention. Yah, Thats the ticket!

    Same here I like the quality and price of the Ruger and Taurus revolvers. I don't have anything against the other popular brands. If money wasn’t an option I would probably pick a Freedom Arms.

    I like Dan Wessons myself. I've had five Model 15's, and currently have a 4" Model 15 and a 6" 715. I prefer them for two reasons, one, I can fix them myself in seconds with an allen wrench and barrel tool, and because they are super strong.

    I like S&W 27's, 28's, 29's, and 629's (no lock for me)too. Rugers are ok, but they really don't interest me much. I didn't keep my Redhawk long at all, it was a nice gun, but I've never missed it.

    For the time being I'm in love with my Taurus Raging Bull .500 4" Barrel. This thing is just a blast to shoot. Otherwise I definitely plan on going S&W from here on out.

    I have been shooting handguns of all kinds since 1971 or so, and I have had all types you list here, but I prefer Smiths. Haven't had one with the dreaded lock yet, but it's not a problem to me.

    I favor Rugers over Smiths by 5 to 1. I have never owned a Python but have always thought they were something special.

    S&W.
    My new favorite is a Model 1917 .45 ACP made about 1937, 10 years older than I am.
    They weren't even thinking about a lock back then.

    Next time... okay maybe the 3rd time I have a spare $2000 in my pocket... I'm buying a .460 S&W Magnum... This is a must-have big-boy's toy.



    Then I'll go shoot .45 Long Colts in it...

    hahaha

    Which revolver do you perfer?

    Man, that's like asking which one of you kids you like best. I voted for the Smith because of their triggers BUT, I also have some Rugers that I will not part with. Have only shot a friends Colt so I really have no real time with that gun to start a love/hate thingy.

    I have some from all three and others, but Colt is my favorite hands down. The Python is like no other revolver. I have four and I'm looking at a fifth.

    My most accurate firearm by far is my S&W 6" Model 19-3. I shoot it at 15, 25 and 50 yards every time I go to the range. Guys at the range do a double take when I'm coming off of the 50 yard outdoor rifle range with all six shots grouped nicely in the middle of an 8" pie plate. It is an awesome gun.

    Just a question, what make the Python so good. I have never had the pleasure to shoot one yet.

    Revolvers:

    I own 5 Rugers and 1 each of Colt, S&W, Taurus, Charter Arms and NAA. Ruger by a 5 to 1 margin.

    We own 2 Rugers Currently, a SP101 & A 5.5 Redhawk.

    Colts, 2 4" Diamondbacks (1-22 1-38), a 6" Python and a 3" "Combat"
    Python. A late Md, Dick Spl, and an Agent, a Cobra, and an older Det Spl.
    And finally an Official Police in 22.

    My favorite Revolvers however are Smiths. We have a slew of em.

    Have not had the pleasure of acquiring one with the new lock feature yet, but I really don't care about it, I just won't use it.

    Model 29

    I own a 29-1 from Smith, I love the gun and its classic blueing, it was passed down to me by my father. I like my 686 but it is solely for competition and was done by John French when he worked at S&W's performance center it is the one in my profile pic with my girlfriend, LOL. I only have the hunting scope on it because I went Pig hunting in Texas with a friend and took it along. But of the two I love that 29, probably because of the sentimental value, but I also love the big target trigger and it feels so balanced when I put that big 8 3/8" barrel out there. They don't put the same craftsmanship into them as they did back then, but unless its a special run you can't get that classic blueing they did either, they still make a great gun though.

    This one caused me to have to think. I had to go with Smith. I seem to leave them alone right out of the box. With Rugers I seem to never be completely happy with them until some tinkering is done. I do love them both though.

    Naming just one brand as a favorite was tough. I love certain Smith models, my models 65 and 66, both three inch, Smith's 629 6" short lug for sure. Even though I don't currently own one, Colts Python is a work of art. I also like Ruger's, especially their old "Six" series, I have a 2-3/4" Speed Six and a 6" Security Six, a spurless hammer SP-101, these three I use most since they are tough as nails and if lost or stolen are not quite as valuable as my Smith's.

    If I had that Perfomance Center 7-shot 357, I might put S&W as my favorite, too.
