    What's a good alternative to the S&W Model 28?

    When I moved to Florida from Montana I sold my trusty S&W Highway Patrolman; I'm finally flush enough to pick up another .357 but the Model 28's are hard to come by. What's a good alternative in S&W or another double action .357? I'm not married to a 6" barrel, but wouldn't want to go real short. I loved that I could practice with inexpensive 38 special rounds in the Model 28. Also, what's the best value in a S&W 38 spl?

    Sorry if this has been addressed in the forums already; I'm new to this site and can't seem to search this matter with any luck...

    New? the 686 family. You could always try and find a used model like you had, they're out there.

    VA is right with going for the L frame 586 (blue) or 686 (stainless) the weight would slightly less than the N frame mod, 28. Look around for used and you might look at the K frame Mod 19 or 66, have all of the above and weight and felt recoil are real good on the L Frames. But my first gun that I bought for myself was a 6 inch Mod 19 and has been one of my best friends for ever and always a fun gun to shoot.
    Shoot safe and have fun doing it.
