Have both Ruger, (Redhawk, Single-six), and S&W, (J,K,L, and N frames), and like them all too much to draw a line. A word of caution regarding Rhinos. My LGS won't sell them, quality issues.

From a practical standpoint , if I were to only have 1 revolver, it would be a .357. It can cover everything from plinking to hunting to self defense with ease. The .44 is a lot of fun, but not what I enjoy for knocking cans off a fence post. Go with S&W or Ruger. Not that other makes aren't good, but these two are the top if the class. See which one feels best to you, (shoot them if you can) and go with it. You won't regret buying either of those two.

I have shot a .44 magnum revolver. Let's just say it wasn't fun for me to shoot. That thing had quite a kick to it. I'll stick to my .357 magnum. I have no doubt it will keep me safe.

I only have two revolvers at the moment.
4" Ruger Gp100 .357mag
8 3/4" S&W 629 .44mag
I personally prefer ruger but I love my smiths also. Either one will outlast and out shot you. What ever deal you find first is the one to get.

If you get a rhino please tell me what you think of it I'm thinking of getting one myself.

Except for that Grip. That has to be changed out. But yeah,..I want a 5 or 6" one...after what I saw in the high desert today( Angus calf mauled & eaten by SOME kind of predator and dismembered), I want to put down whatever did it before it eats me!!! If you don't mind me asking how much did it run(out the door)? Thx.

I think I got very lucky. I traded a pistol I couldn't even sell for $750 for it. They range from $1000-1300. And I love that the guy never fired it. Nothing better then a virgin gun.

Cool! That is a Good score. I saw a blued 4" for 1k even, and the guy said he'd eat the tax since it was at a Gun Show, but I just don't want a blued one...
