I have a Ruger SP101. Have not had any issues with it yet (other than it's a 5 shot).

Depending on your intended uses, S&W has lots of choices. S&W 686 is a good medium frame option.

Model 60 for a small frame option.

As mentioned above, Rugers are nice also.

Depending on the intended use as to which gun will work best. SP101/GP100 or the S&W 686 or several others.

I have a SP101 that has many birthdays and still is tight and shiny after several cases of ammo. Handle as many as you can and see what strikes your fancy. Longer barrels tend to have less muzzle flip, shorter barrels are easier to conceal. Grips make a huge difference also.

There's nothing quite like a S&W Model 66.



What kind of budget are we working with here?

Get a Smith and Wesson,they are the best,last forever..You can get a used Smith for what you can get a new Taurus for,and the S&W will still last longer yet.
