Everyone has the right to choose the gun of their choice.

I only own Rugers and S+W's, have shot a few of the others listed but can't really speak from experience...or lack of it...

I don't think I could pick a favorite manufacturer though...

I agree with Rick about Taurus...left a bad taste in my mouth...tasted like pennies...

1982 629...Didn't care for the feel of the grip at first but it's growing on me...

I hope to bash in a baby bear's skull with my GP-100 one day, or maybe my nephew's .44 Redhawk if I can get it from him.

By looking at my current collection of revolvers I guess S&W is my fav. But I do like Rugers a lot and have plans to get a couple of them . I like Colts a lot as well

Smith&Wesson.........


Ruger's are good too, but they are not yet at the S&W level.

Had to do some heavy duty thinking on this one. Now need heavy duty aspirin.

If money was not a problem ( in addition to the wife ) I would have Pythons, Troopers, 19s, and Combat Mags as wallpaper.

For just an overall, considering everything I have to go with Ruger. Besides, I really like the cylinder release.

Love my S&W's, especially my Model 19. That said, if I had a water cooled credit card I'd buy the next Colt Python I find, no matter the cost.

first choice would be Smith & Wesson, following up with Ruger in second and then Dan Wesson, just because after shooting my fathers DW 15-2, i became a believer in them.
