Will never give up my 37 year old 6" Python. I do love Rugers tho as well,..for "new" guns...
no knock against S&W revolvers, just not my cuppa tea, like Glock,..not my thing...

Thanks for the heads-up Anna. Now, can you help out with the water cooled credit card?

I think Smith and Wessons look best as far as revolvers go. They look absolutely GORGEOUS when they are engraved and have pretty handles =)

Own a Ruger gp100 and it's great. Fit and finish isn't as good as s&w but like everyone says, Ruger guns are tough...very tough.
