I drive Fords and I own mostly S&W handguns. Either the Colt or the S&W will serve you well. The Colt will cost you more and require more maintenance. You will also be able to sell it for more. I have Colt collecting friends and they swear by their Colts, and that they are superior to S&W. I am not an LEO, nor do I shoot competitively, but I see no significant difference when I shoot their Colts. The best bargain in 357 revolvers right now is the S&W Highway Patrolman or Model 28. Generally the Model 28 can be had for less than the S&W 686 and much less than Colt products. The Model 28 is fairly common on the used market and does everything that any other full size 357 magnum revolver can do. Rent the guns that interest you at the range and see if there is a difference to you. I swear by my S&W revolvers, others by their Colts. It is a matter of personal preference, neither is inherently the "right" gun for everyone.
