if you could find an older Smith&Wesson M19 or M66 or the older Ruger Security Six, these would be very good range guns. search some of the gun stores and pawn shops, you might luck into one for a decent price.

Nothing wrong with a Ruger, but they don't have nearly the style and class of a S&W.

A bit of an understatement. I agree, here's a grainy fuzzy cell pic of my beauty.

You don't buy Ruger revolvers for their aesthetics. You buy them because they are built like tanks and after firing all rounds you can beat the grizzly to death with it.

I think my model 65 has just slightly more swinging and beating capabilities than an SP101 or whatever their model numbers are.

Not knocking Ruger revolvers, I hear they are excellent guns in the durability department, and honestly I kind of like the idea of a push button cylinder release.

I own a Rossi, I suggest a S&W or Ruger.

Dan wesson arms , VH barrels , interchangable barrels , adjustable trigger , adjustable sight , foward cylinder release. most accurate well built revolvers in the world imho

And damn that sorry grizzly anyway!

I like the looks of my Ruger GP100 just fine; it is one of my favorite plinkers and wouldn't be the worst choice for self defense. Mine has the 6" barrel for target shooting, not the snubby for the up close work.

I've never personally liked the small-framed .38 special snubby shooting experience, though they do have a certain bulldog appeal.
