Re: Got some money. I want a revolver.
I would stay with either S&W or Ruger for a revolver. 44mag isn't a bad choice, I would prefer a .357 or .41 for most things though. But that's just me.
personally, I think Ruger makes the strongest revolvers and the ones I have came with phenominal triggers and are deadly accurate.
A GP100 with a 4 or 6" barrel is my favorite I think.
