I have been shooting a K-38 in bullseye competition for about
40 years. I don't have a gun that shoots better for me. Even
my Hi-Standard .22 doesn't lay them in there like my K-38.

Here it is...
Model 27-2 with target tuning. Perfect caliber (and can shoot .38 ), barrel length for good sight radius and balance (believe it or not).

I agree with some of the posts that there really isn't an ideal, because there are so many variables. Its sort of one of those "What would you have if you could have just one gun?" kind of questions. To me thats a world different than my favorite or what I would like to see.
Of what currently exists on the market if I could only have one it would probably be a 4" 629. I have three 629s, a four inch standard, Mountain Gun and a 5" Classic with the full lug barrel. To me the standard barrel is the best of them. The .44 Mag has unmatched versatility for the way I use revolvers.
My favorite revolvers though, are the K frame models, being particularly partial to the Model 19, K-38 and K-22 series. Double action revolvers mind you, don't get me started on Colt Single Action Armys.
I've often thought if you could build one from scratch it would be nice to incorporate the Smith and Wesson action smoothness with some of the ruggedness and grip frame of the Ruger (having such wide latitude in grips sizes is a great feature).

I've had a couple of S&W revolvers, but I lucked into a model 66 a few years ago. Was working at an indoor gun range/gun shop when a guy came in wanting to sell a few guns. The owner bought his autos, but was overstocked on used revolvers at that time so didn't offer him anything for a pair of Rossis, a Taurus, or his S&W model 66. I picked it up, checked that it was clear, closed the cylinder, dry-fired it TWICE and offered him a ridiculously low price that he took. Having competed in IPSC, GSSF, and IPDA with 1911s and a G19, I wanted to try wheelgunning for competition. This 66 and I were made for each other. It is so easy to use; as it has been stated here before, "The Original Point and Click Interface."
Anyway, used the 66 as my only IDPA gun for monthly matches from last October up to the state championship in August and my baby never let me down, and I was always sad when I didn't live up to its expectations. Fun times.

Switched for today's competition to my M&P 45, but felt slightly adulterous. I'll get over it.

Model 65 or 13 with 3" barrel. I would also like a Smith 547 9mm with a 3" barrel, but as there
were so few made they command a premium price.
I have a 3" 66, but it is unfired and I am keeping it that way!!!!

I have been after a Model 58 in 41 magnum for some time (blued) but they too (as a lot of Smith's now are) command a premium. I have several j-frames and some k-frames and you can't go wrong with either. Having said that, I would not have to create one, I would just like a scandium j-frame in 357 that did not whip you like a redheaded step child every time you fired it.
