I own a few Semi-Auto's but not one Revolver yet. I don't want a snub nose, just something more for home defense & just to play around with at the range. So what would you guys recommend? I'd like to keep it in the $500.00 +/- range or less if possible.
+1 on the GP100

Ruger SP101 with 3" barrel. Fun to play with but can also easily be carried.
Ruger SP101 in either the 3" barrel or the new 4". 3" if you want to carry it once in awhile. 4" if you are more interested in just target shooting and home defense with occasional trail use. In either case, you are getting the best revolver for the money.
Ruger SP101 3" .357
Taurus 941UL .22WMR
H&R Pardner Pump 20
Another vote for Ruger. I have both the sp101 and the gp100 and would recommend either one for your budget.

A fairly big gunshow is a great place to look for a revolver. I love my Ruger .357 Sp101 3 inch but the older S&W & Colts are way nice too! Back in the day when the only autos were Hi-Powers & 1911's S&W RULED!
Used S&W 66 or 686. Much better triggers than the Rugers.
Ruger SP101 or GP100

Revolvers, “more elegant weapons for a more civilized age.”
What are the differences between the Ruger GP100 & SP101.
Ruger SP101 or GP100 Can't go wrong either way. Let us know what you end up with.
