I have to agree with Jordan, Sputnik & Blueguns. My GP-100 is dead on accurate with a 6" barrel, eats everything I feed it and well balanced. The rubber/wood grips are very comfortable in my big paws. I researched it for over a year before I bought it, 1 month after I bought mine G&A mag put it on the cover of the mag and the price went up $100. Its the gun on the right on my profile pix.

I have a weakness for N Frame S&Ws. For a shooter you will probably never wear out, look into a model 28. If pretty matters, look at the model 27 (basically the same gun with a higher polished finish).
Since you apparently have no objection to used revolvers, I would suggest you take a look at the various Colt Trooper models. A lot of quality and prices are not all that bad if you look around. FWIW, the original Colt Trooper is called "the poor man's Python" because it used the same frame & internals. Later versions are quite good, but the design changed, getting away from the expensive to produce older design.
Dan Wessons are still going for decent money if you can find what you like. Not as nicely styled as Colt & S&W (IMHO), but I don't think you can hurt them with any loads that could be considered responsible. They have also earned a reputation for excellent accuracy.
As for used Rugers, keep an eye out for a Security Six. Excellent revolvers with all of the Ruger durability. Rumor has it that they were discontinued because they were getting to be too expensive to produce for their price range. I personally think they are better looking than their modern replacements, opinions vary of course.

Like the security six, but I like the looks of an NIB GP100 better. Plus if I can get it blued and with the same grips that are in Hickok45's video that would make a beauty of a gun.
