I know this is off topic, but there is a lot of knowledge here so figured I would ask. I'm perfectly happy with my Glock 17, but have always wanted a good simple .357. Now that our idiot "Gov" Paris Glendening (what kind of candy-ass name is Paris anyway?) is really forcing the integrated gun mechanical safety lock issue, I've decided to get one before they all start coming with electrical-thumbprinting-triggerlocking-idiotproofing safety mechanisms. Problem: I had always figured I would get a S&W, but now that they've caved on the lawsuit issue, I'm sort of disgusted with them. The Ruger seems like a decent gun, but I don't have any experience with them. Are they good? Any other recommendations?
