Now I am not a SA fan but if I was in the market for one a Ruger would be number one. Very strong, simple, reliable, built to last, and makes a good club when you run out of ammo. Doubt if you will ever need to repair it.
Oh and I do own many Ruger DA revolvers so I do know a thing about Rugers (but not two.)
