Accuracy was about the same either way. I don't have a lot of experience to base my opinion on, but this gun is way easier to shoot than my nephew's Security Six. The trigger guard on the Ruger kept nailing my index finger with .357's. My 686P never got my index finger even once and I was shooting Winchester's 125 gr and 158 gr .357's through it. Very smooth and accurate gun. Definitely a keeper.

    I have the 6" barrel 686P. It's the best shooting pistol I own (out of 9) especially on single action with any load.Anyone considering purchasing a revolver should checkout the S & W 686. I agree it's a keeper.

    Brought home a 50th Anniversary Blackhawk, .357mag, with a 4 5/8 bbl. A real sweetheart. That makes #4 for this year.

    I was in Wally World yesterday and ran across a deal I couldn't pass up. For the second time in less than 8 months I was in the right place at the right time. I got a 20ga Winchester 1300 for$100.

    As I stated in an earlier post, I picked up a new 4" S&W 686P about 2 wks ago and I love it. It will be my primary HD gun and is sitting on my nightstand loaded with Fed. 158gr JHP's. This Saturday I pick up an almost brand new Dan Wesson Commander Classic Bobtail .45ACP for a second HD/SD gun. I'll carry it in my vehicle when I get my CCW permit. My next gun will be a 9mm auto for less expensive range practice...maybe a new Para Tac 5? I should then be set for awhile...uhhh, right.

    Gunshows are bad for my budget. Got this S&W 686-6 on Friday night.

    Hello. It's been a little over a week, but I did buy a new pistol.


    This is STI's Legacy. I've not shot it but a few hundred rounds so far, but it's proven itself reliable and accurate with a very nice trigger pull.

    Best.

    I own the 686PP (Power Ported) that I keep in my nightstand. I load it with 38+P ammo for a little less noise (I think) if I ever had to use it in a inclosed room. Other wise you might want to keep some ear protection close by so you can hear the sirens.
    I'm not sure if the 686P (P=Ported or Plus?) is a ported gun or not but if it is and you had to shoot it in a dark room make the 1st shot count since you will be blinded by the blast through the port.
    I love my 686 but I am thinking of changing it's HD roll from night stand to office HD roll. I'll replace it with my S & W, M & P 40 or my 9mm Sigma.

    That is sweet - I also like having dark triggers on a 1911 instead of the silver ones

    Hello 2400: No, I think I'll hang on to the pistol a bit longer.

    Best.
