    Is that 686 a new one or a used one? I'd love to hear how you like it after you get it especially if its a newer one. I dont own a S&W yet but have often thought about one. I'm just not sure about the the lock and hole. I only have 2 revolvers and the wife has 1. I have a 3inch Sp101 and a 5inch gp100. Wife has a 7 shot Taurus.

    There are lots of good points in this thread. I can only speak for myself. Iam 60 an have had several operations on my shoulder an elbow leaving me weak in that arm. I had several limp wrist failures with my 1911 at the range which proved to me that I need to stay with revolvers. I have put several hundred rounds through each of my SP101 an S&W mod sixty never had a prob. Everone needs to carry which ever they can present quickly an on target. The more I read in these forums the more I am impressed with the number of Americans who stand up an take responsibilty for thier own safety and of those around them. I truely believe that carrying a concealed weapon keeps me be aware of my surroundings an makes me walk with deliberate purpose, sending a signal that I am not a victum so stay away. Thanks to all of you who take on this responsibilty, you just might save my life one day.

    What are your opinions on having or needing a revolver in your collection based off the fact that it is simple to use and maintain
    Never saw a gun I didn't like. That's as good an excuse to buy it as any.

    Mine are all too big for practical CC except possibly under heavy winter clothes (which we don't wear much of down here).

    We'll try this again as my last post must have gone into cyberspace.
    Although they don't have the firepower of an auto a revolver works first time every time and if one has an arm disabled it still works without racking a slide to clear a jam etc. I have a couple of Kahrs and the 9MM is flawless in operation but the .40 is now going back to Kahr for the second time. (PM9 and PM40) I just don't have that worm fuzzy feeling with an auto CC that I do with a revolver and now I carry a S&W Airweight.

    My 2.25" SP101 is in arm's reach(actually about 10") as I type this. I'm a firm believer in "5(or 6)for sure". A quality revolver should be part of any 'gunslinger's' arsenal !(LOL)

    My first revolver (okay 2nd if you count my .22LR SA Only) is on its way to me. Bought it from someone on this forum. It is the Chiappa Rhino (.357 Mag/38 Spl). Quite the interesting revolver as it shoots from the BOTTOM cylinder. That does almost eliminate any muzzle flip and also aids in perceived recoil. I had the chance to shoot one at the range (rented it) and found I did want to get it. So, by sometime next week I should have it in my hands and will go to the range and have some fun.

    I also have a 4" M44, but in stainless. It's one of my pig-hunting sidearms. Great gun, for the money!

    I suppose anything mechanical can fail but I've never seen a revolver fail/lock up. At the moment I'm between revolvers but I do like them, although I'm mainly an auto guy. They are pretty simple to operate, very reliable and quite robust (assuming you buy a decent one). They also work with basically any ammo- no more fiddling around trying to find a bullet shape that will reliably feed and cycle thru your gun.

    Oh! The blue finish and those old-school wooden grips look great! I've got a 686 I bought around 20 years ago and I still love that gun.

    I am thinking about more revolvers because I am very worried that I won't be able to own most of my pistols anymore in the near future. :(
