    My first was a S&W, but since then Ruger took over my safe.

    Twice as many Rugers as Smiths.

    A bunch of Smiths (mostly 1960s to 1990's manufacture), a colt detective special, and a Ruger Blackhawk

    I guess Ruger, but I own multiple S&Ws too. I dont own the Rugers by actual desire, just by practical use of the gun.

    favorite make of revolers

    Got Lead: Ruger gets the nod hands down at our house. My Son and I are Blackhawk & Vaquero die hard fans, It has been my experience over the years that you have to really work at is to damage a Ruger. We have never had any problems with any of our Rugers and they all shoot very well. I have carried a Blackhawk or Vaquero for many a mile and they have never failed Me or my Son. They are as strong as any revolers I know of, and very comforting to carry (( because they work and they work every time )). GOOD LUCK TO YOU: ken

    I have four Smiths, one Ruger, one Iver-Johnson, and one Nagant. Three .38s, three .22s, and one ... Nagant.

    Ruger for me. I only have one, but it's the only revolver I own. :)

    I do want to add another Ruger to the mix though. I'd like a 4 5/8" Blackhawk in .357 mag.

    I only own Smiths, but merely by circumstance, not necessarily by choice. I have nothing against Ruger, Taurus, Charter, etc..


    edit; no, I'm wrong. Forgot about the 1895 Nagant revolver I have. :eek:

    My collection of revolvers is fairly pathetic. I currently own only one revolver, a Freedom Arms M83. I used to own a Dan Wesson .44 Mag made just before they went under and got bought by CZ, it was a pile of poo.

    Oh well I may only own one revolver, but at least it's a really good one. I need to buy more.

    Well, at least when you do something, you do it right.

    Over the years I've probably owned one or another of them all. Colt, Ruger, Taurus, Charter Arms, Mitchell Arms, Dan Wesson, a Nagant,

    Now, I've got fourteen Smith & Wessons and one Nagant (Which I don't really count since it's more of a paperweight than anything else.)

    My wife has a Ruger Single Six still. She won't let that one go.

    It's tied between S&W and Ruger.

    I have owned only two revolvers in my life. One was a Miroku .38 spl with a 2" (or thereabouts) barrel in the early '70s. It was sold a long time ago in a place far, far away.

    I currently own a brilliant S&W 342.

    I would ha' owned more, but hard luck and dumb decisions do take their toll on a body.
