Pick one either one. Either way no one is a looser as they say.
I like both. Though I found better deals on used Smith & Wesson Revolvers. I have not seen many used Ruger revolvers for sale. That says a lot to me as far as owner retention of them goes.
Here is a pic of my two Smith DA revolvers. Both were bught for under $350 each. One is a 6 inch N frame Model 28-2 .357 Magnum Highway Patrolman that was carried from 1979 till 1990 by a motorcycle cop. The other is a Model 67-1 K Frame .38 Special with a 4 inch barrel. Both shoot like laser beams. Lock up tight, and have nice smooth triggers.
