Ruger Gp100

Smith and Wesson 686 vs. Ruger GP100 357?

I can't decide which one to get gentleman; the Smith and Wesson 686 is about $600 and the Ruger GP100 is about 520. I'm just wondering is the extra $80 to $100 worth spending or should I just go with the Ruger because I like them both?
I decided to spend alittle bit more money and I bought the Smith and Wesson 686!

Folks, can it get any better than this. These are the decisions we all love to be making!

I have to agree with the other folks, both are very good guns. I, personally, like the Ruger better than the S&W. Yes, I have shot both. Yes, the S&W has a better resale value. However, I have always found and 15-30% difference in price on the front end (Ruger being of a lower cost) and the Ruger being the stronger (materially) weapon (Granted at this level it's like teenagers comparing comic book characters). My deciding factor has been me. The Ruger's have always felt better in my hand, and (out of the box) I've always shot a Ruger revolver more accurately than the Smith.

Guess I'm saying, I can buy 3-10 boxes of shells for the difference in price and I hit better with the Ruger, so I go with the Ruger.

Oh, and if someone gave me a 686, I'd keep it forever, too! Hmm, another way to put it.. my wife, as a blond.. or a redhead.. dang what a decision.. and it's fun either way!
