    I partial to the Ruger Security -Six in stainless.Mine is in 357 and I've shot a lot of 38's in it.Mine comes in 4 inch barrel.

    My next choice is Dirty Harry's S&W model 29 44 magnum.I was watching some of the old dirty harry movie this past weekend and they really made out how powerful the 44 mag is.

    Perfect for me would be a S&W Model 19 .357 mag with a 4" barrel in stainless steel.

I know that I'd want one more for the "combat" role than for concealed carry or target shooting, so a 4-5" barrel sounds like a good length to me. The more I reading I do about revolver cartridges, the more I like the .44 Special, but I'd be awful appreciative of a .45 ACP revolver too. I don't know if I want fixed or adjustable sights, because I don't know what I'd be feeding the wheel-gun yet. I like the ribbed rubber Taurus grips, but while they were good for a .44 Mag I don't know if they'd be necessary on a .44 Special; the square-butt sounds like it would fill out the hand a little better.

    Ejectors and the like I know next to nothing about, so I've started doin' some readin' about that. I wonder what parts could benefit being made of Inconel.

    What more could anyone want out of a wheelgun??
    Agreed except for the trigger part. The trigger is nice right out of the box on mine.

    One more thing - it's got enough mass to make an effective club if you run out of ammo!

    I have a six-inch Python but feel the 4-inch barrel length is the best way to do the Python.

    Mine is my S&W Model 19-2 2-1/2" barrel. I love the 38/357 combo.

    Mine even has a bit of personal history that makes it special to me. The previous owner used to compete in bullseye shoots with it every month. I got it from the estate of a fellow gun club member that I was friends with. Transfered through the gun shop of a past gun club president.

    OD, BMC, et al., what's the man differences between the Colt revolvers and comparable S&W revolvers?
