As a retired LEO when I was a young Deputy Sheriff I carried a Smith Model 57 4" 41 Mag. Revolver. It is a fantastic cartridge and the 57 is a fine revolver. Nothing at all wrong with a Ruger but the S&W Model 57 is my revolver of choice. It is in the N Frame which is the same frame as the 44 Mag. Revolver. Sorry I parted with it years ago, but I still have a Model 27 5" in 357 Mag. which I like very well and it is also an N Frame Revolver. Either way you can not go wrong!
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
