First of all, welcome to the forum!
Now, a quick bit of gunbrokering tells me the commonly available choices are Ruger, S&W, and there are two Taurii. Personally, given the things I've heard about S&W lately (quality control, customer service)... and admittedly, I have yet to forgive S&W for their actions during the Clinton administration, so I'd look at the Rugers and the Taurii. Looks like you can get an SP101 for about $500, and a six shot SP100 for about $600. The Taurus is currently at $400 with no bids and 3 days to go. If I were a much more patient man than I am, I'd wait and see how the Taurus ends and grab it if it's below $450. If I were actually itching for a 3" .357, I'd probably hop on an SP101 right away. Built like tanks and great customer service from everything you hear on forums. And actually, since the $450 figures is just 10% below the rough SP101 price, that's probably the answer, especially since you had one before - assuming you liked it!
