Buy the best one that you can afford. Even if you spend $1500 on it, you'll spend more on the ammo over its life if you take good care of it.
I love my Walther GSP; a Marvel top end on a carefully massaged 1911 would be great too.

That being said, a used but good condition Ruger Mk1 would also serve you well if that's the best you can afford right now.

Best...... S&W Model 41
Next...... Browning Buck Mark
Next ......Ruger MkI or Mk II series

Revolvers.....

S&W 617 series
Ruger Single six series
Dan Wesson revolvers


Bottom line, go shop, find what fits your hands first, then what fits your budget, then buy it, then enjoy it.

Speaking from gunsmith point of view-I don't see how yall can even THINK a buckmark or ESPECIALLY a s&w 22a is better than a ruger mk 3 slabside.
Not only accuracywize.but also from the amount of these guns I've had to fix.
From design standpoint,the ruger comes out on top easily. You do however usually need to "sweeten" trigger pull on rugers-this is because of today's age of lawyers eager to sue instead of being lower in quality.
He did get it right about getting what fits your hand tho.

See...... that's what's nice about the world of firearms...... everyone has an opinion, and SHOULD NOT BE FAULTED FOR IT. I've had my S&W 41 since 1959, and never had it in the shop. Had my Buck Marks for 15 years, and never had any of the three in the shop. Had my Ruger Mk II (10" barrel) for 12 or more years and never had it worked on. My 5.5 in Ruger Mk II has been back to Ruger once, but minor stuff. Of the Three brands, the Ruger is the last one I'd prefer to take apart and clean. But you see......... that's just my opinion.... and that's what was asked for in the original post in this thread.
