      I like the Ruger Gp-100 and the SP-101 in .357.

      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.

      Cool

      I voted for S&W because I do love my Model 60 that I carry daily and my 617 for having fun at the range. I shoot IDPA with a Ruger GP100 and its a great revolver.

      Maybe its not a fair question just because SMith and Wesson has so MANY revolvers. Whats the ratio of S&W model types to Colt and Ruger, 3 to 1, 4 to 1 maybe?

      I have a Smith and Wesson model 65, .357 Magnum; three inch barrel, fixed sights, stainless, with recessed cylinders and round butt. It is not only an excellent field gun, it can be carried concealed in cooler weather. It has one of the finest trigger actions I have ever felt, and all the accuracy I can make use of.

      Ruger because that is what I can fit into my budget right now. Hope one day a colt will fit... for now I will just shoot my brother's.

      Dan Wesson, hands down. Their record in silhouette competition speaks to their accuracy and durability and the interchangable barrels and grip design give a versatility no one else has. It's a shame they never got the respect they deserved.
