    Cool My new revolver

    My wife has 2 revolvers. A Ruger single 6 and a Taurus 357. I have 5 autos. A 22, a 380, two 9mm and a 45. When we go shooting, she likes to shoot the 357 and I like shooting my Beretta 92F. I found that I enjoyed shooting her 357 just as much as my Beretta. So, seeing that I have a birthday coming up, (number 76) I decided to buy myself an early birthday present. I bought a S & W 686 with a 4" barrel. Looking forward to going to the range.

    i have the blued version, the 586 and you should love yours.... the trigger action is one of the best in the business (comparable to the python) in my opinion

    I went to the range today to try out my S&W 686. I had 3 1/2 boxes of ammo in my range bag. Figured I would shoot a box, just to see how the gun handled. It was like potato chips. You can't eat just one. I shot all 3 1/2 boxes. What a fine shooting revolver. The best trigger I have ever experienced.

    I just picked up a 2nd hand 6" 686p recently and haven't been able to make it to the range yet. With just a couple of test dry fires I was blown away with the SA trigger pull. All I could say was WOW! If it shoots as well as I hear they do, I'm going to have to pick up another die set to reload this cal with. Darn the luck..... ha!
