Get the 686, you won't regret it.


Erik:

He may regret it if he decides to carry it concealed. The 686 is big. And heavy. And has stuff sticking out all over - adjustable rear sight and pointy front sight.

For a defensive revolver, my preference is for fixed sights, smooth grips (no finger-grooves), rounded corners and edges, and a slim, light build. Huh. My 2.25-inch SP-101 meets those criteria. How 'bout that?

For a target-shooter, pay me no mind. Size, weight and grabbi-ness aren't necessarily bad things.

Son 2 recently acquired a Charter Arms "Off duty" 5-shot .38 Special. Ugly as sin, finished like crap, shoots like mad! I'd carry it, provided it can be fixed so the cylinder opens when it's hot & dirty (it can only be opened by pulling out the ejector rod).

Ben's dad - I'll let ya' try the SP if we meet up in Hutch (or Dundas) before you buy something.

Well, I can officially die now; never thought the day would dawn when I'd agree with a liberal about ANYTHING, much less Rugers. And from Minneapolis! :shock:

Oh well, I'll just crawl into the fetal position and gnaw on my hand... :cry:

Did somebody say "big and heavy" .357?

This might be a tad difficult to carry discreetly, but maybe a shoulder holster and trench coat?? :P

Taurus 608.. Nice, large, accurate, high capacity, affordable .357 magnum
