Smith & Wesson
I have 2 revolvers..both Smith & Wessons
1 is a nickel plated .44 magnum and the other is a stainless steel .38 special
I love my super redhawk .44mag but I wouldn't mind an S&W. Love the fell of S&W grips but at the time I could only afford my used SRH. My dad has a M29 which he loves but I prefer the cushion of my rubber grips.
I like the Ruger SP101, in a .357 caliber and 2-1/4" barrel, very concealable and packs a good punch.
i said ruger because its the only one you listed that i had. a ruger security six 357 mag.... a very reliable and accurate gun and surprisingly with very little recoil as i remember.
Love Rugers! Had a S&W .357mag 19 until they SOLD OUT to Klintons BS.It was nice gun but hurt my hand after 20 rds or more.Hope my nephew still has it???J.R.
My D.W. 714-2. I never leave home without it. Oh, it's the only revolver I own. I bought it used. It's about 20 years old.
Baldy that is a SWEET looking Python. I really want one in 6". There are just to many other things to spend $1000.00 on. I will just have to live with the 36" pythons at my sides (lol).
I have owned Colt, Ruger, Dan Wesson, Charter, Taurus, and Smith and Wesson. I liked them all. I currently own and may transition to a Model 19.

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!
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.
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.
