On the revolver choice Smith and Dan Wesson. Owned one of each many, may years ago. I miss that Dan Wesson 357, came with 3 barrells and I enjoyed shooting it.
Pistol wise, I have owned Glock pistols for years and have great trust in them. Of course, if you don't own a 1911, that is a must have. Every gun owner should be required to have one.
I don't like to give advice on guns I have not had experience with so I will just stick with my favorites listed above. Good luck with your choice.
