Smith and Wesson. Figured I'd get to you before the Ruger fan club shows up! There's nothing wrong with Ruger, they are damn fine guns, but a S&W is just classic as hell.

Here is a ruger fan! I do like my old smith 38 special but If your looking for a daily carry gun I like my ruger LCR 357 it's light and has a good grip.

play the victim, be the victim

Ha! LOL! I beat you to it!! I like Ruger too, but a Smith is kinda like a Rolex- it's a timeless classic.

Oh so true, wish my bank acct would let me invest in one, (or anything right now) sweet piece though!

I just got the Ruger LCR about two weeks ago and I love it I think it makes a perfect carry piece... I do have a couple smith & wesson wheel guns too and they are great too but the ones I got are too big to conceal and this new ruger is great for that it is small and very light weigh

S&W model 27 with 2 1/2" bbl 8 shots cylinder made from alloy keep it light weight. If you can't hit the bad guy with 6 you have 2 more. Good luck. jMB

One of my carry guns is a Ruger SP101 in 357. 28oz loaded. Mine has the Crimson Trace LG111 grips. I dont think I would want to shoot anything lighter with 357 mags in it. I have 125 grn Critical Defense in mine. Very controllable.

Hey Trip!

Is that my S&W 65-2?

I also like S&W guns. Although I am a life-long 1911 man, I do enjoy shooting
The Smith Wheel guns, and much to my displeasure I actually shoot the Smith better than my 1911.

The 65-2 is my wife's "Alamo" gun, and a model 60 is her glove comptarment companion.
