Another vote for Ruger. If you manage to wear one out, I think you earn some bragging rights
S&W makes a fine revolver as well. However, the pricepoint is certainly higher than Ruger. I would look at S&W more like the H&K semis, well worth the $$$, but not in every one's budget. Ruger is more Glock-like, reliable and cost effective with a pretty good warranty.
