If you can afford it, the S&W is likely the one which will not disappoint you. For the money, it better not. . The Taurus may or may not - you get mixed reports on their performance. My snubbie .22 Magnum 941 UL has worked fine - others report so-so. Charter Arms 2000 - agains, mixed reviews. Older, original revolvers were very well thought of - I have a 80's vintage .32 H&R Magnum I won't sell very soon, if ever. The .22 Pathfinders also had similar tendencies.
