I'm old school I like S&W K&N Frames. But I have owned a few Ruger and I have gotten my moneys worth with every Ruger I have owned.
So it depends on what your going to use the gun for. If it will used on the job IE carried a lot then I would go for the Ruger unless I could find a good used S&W Mod 66. If I was going to fire a lot of hot .357 loads then I would get a S&W N frame the larger frame will help absorb the recoil.
If I was going to carry it and shoot it a lot the a S&W L frame the best of easy carry and wieght. And with the L and N frame S&W you get and extra couple of rounds.
Fast is fine but accuracy is final. You must learn to be slow in a hurry!
