In these threads everyone (including me) touts their personal favorite as the "best" gun to buy,,,
But in truth the one that makes your smile the broadest is the one you should buy.
Pick some up and hold them,,,
Forget what's "best" and buy what feels good.
Personally I like K-frame S&W revolvers,,,
Depending on the grips they feel good in my hand.
For a range shooter I think a Model 15 is very hard to beat,,,
I have one as well as a Model 67 (stainless) that I will never get rid of.
You might like the way Rugers feel.
Just find one that makes you smile,,,
That's the revolver to buy.
