Motownstan, what is the finish on that 28? Nickle? Chrome? Armaloy?
if I had to choose just one revolver, it would be a really tough choice. Probably boil down to a flip of a coin between my M28 and my Ruger Blakhawk 7.5" .45Colt/.45acp.
On the other hand, my Colt Agent .38 snub is a consideration, if you include carry in the mix. For a woods gun, range gun, a full size .357 (capable of handling full power loads) is difficult to beat.
On the other hand (as Topol says..) the Ruger in .45 Colt, is no slouch with standard factory loads, will take improved loads up to .44 Mag class, and the convertable has the added plus of taking .45acp, for ammo commomality if you have a 1911 or other .45 auto. You can say about the same for the .357/9mm convertable, but rumor has it that lots of them don't shoot the 9mms very accurately. I don't own one, so I can't say from personal expierence, but I don't have that problem with my .45s.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
