    I would prefer a gun designed around the old venerable Colt 1911 frame. 45acp is ok but I would prefer 9mm for convenience as that would put my wife and I shooting the same ammo when we go out.

    I also like .357 revolvers and if I see one I like in my price range I could easily fall for it.

    What's everyone else like in the $400.00 to $500.00 price range? New or a good used gun doesn't matter to me which.

    Ruger MKIII 22/45, for everything else another Glock.

    I like wheel guns also.

          I'm a wheel gun fan as well.

          I have a S&W 686 357 mag with a 2-1/2 barrel. Hands down my favorite hand gun I own.

          I'm extremely big on reviews, and IMO S&W make the best wheel guns. Now I held everything except a Colt so..I can't form an opinion on them.

          But the S&W wheel guns are just soooo smooth.

          But that particular S&W was in the $600 range..just a tad out of yours.

          I like a lot of other manufacters...except Glock (no offense james). Just doesn't do anything for me personally. I hear they are very reliable guns, but I went with a Springfield XD9 subcompact instead.

          But I'm going to get rid of my XD and LCP (never shot it) and save my money for an ED Brown 1911.

                Another Smith 686 fan here, although mine has the six inch barrel, and I mounted Millett target sights on it.

                I have a few autoloaders, but they are all .22, and all High Standards.

                  I almost went with the 6" barrel on my 686. But I didn't want to conceal carry with it cause of the barrel length. But then again the 2 1/2 barrel isn't no better either..it's very bulky!!

                  Awesome gun though.

                      I have a 687 ( I'm to lazy to go check and see if that is right) it's the 7 shot smith in 357. The action has been worked over by a good friend of mine. It is a smooth action thats for sure. I wish I didn't have him bob the hammer. oh'well it's only double action now. Just a great gun. I guess it's is my favorite. At least I don't have to pick up brass like I do with the 1911's.

                          You have what I have..the 686P (P=plus) which is 7 shot. You most likely have a different barrel length though.
