You can't go wrong with a Ruger product. IMHO in terms of quality revolvers, I'd rate Ruger just behind S&W. These days, they might be equal. S&W is not what they used to be. And I am a dyed in the wool S&W fan. I happen to own a 30+ year old Stainless steel Security Six that looks as good as it did in the '70s. Sweetest trigger ever in a double action revolver. You do need to keep an eye on the extractor rod, they are known to work loose and make opening the cylinder kind of tough. They are reverse threaded.
