First time shooting a 686!
I hit the range with a friend last night and in addition to shooting my M&P 9, we also rented a 686 since he's thinking about buying one. This was actually my first time shooting a revolver of any kind.
What a great piece! We were shooting 38 specials through it and boy, what a surprise on the recoil (or rather lack thereof). It felt like a .22 after shooting my poly-frame M&P. I was really expecting more of a "kick" since it's a revolver. I guess there's something to be said about a big, heavy, all-metal frame. It was really enjoyable, and very accurate when shooting single action. :smt023
For those who have one, how much does the recoil increase when firing .357 mag ammo?
