    Can't decide what I should get next. I am very happy with these two but I am leaning toward a larger 357 w/6" barrel.
    What do you people think? I have a 1911 and a 22 so the large revolver is the only thing I see as a missing link.

    Those are some nice little wheel guns you have there. I like them quite a lot.

    A six inch revolver can make for a fun day at the range... i dont think you can go wrong. I found that i did not shoot many 357 loads out of mine, and stuck primarily to my 38 special reloads. You can pound targets all day long with a 6" wheel gun while using soft shooting 38's.... and inhaling a little Bullseye powder does the body good. Try looking at the Smith and Wesson 686, or maybe a model 10 if you are just interested in shooting 38's. Good luck. Lets us know what you end up getting. Bunker

    Depends on what you intend for its use. If you're going to carry it other than on horseback, I'd look for a 4-incher. If it's just a fun gun, then the 6-inch tube makes sense.

    I will not be looking to carry it as I would use the j's for that. This would be a range and home gun that I would like to have the possibility of shooting 357 but it would likely live on a diet of 38's. Never had a 6" revolver so I am really leaning that way. I will let you know later this month or first thing next year. Do love my j frames now.
    Be safe, Frank.

    S&w 686

    I have three .357s with 6 inch barrel, a S&W 686, a Colt Python and a Ruger Blackhawk. I'd recommend the 686 as the best all-around gun at a reasonable price. The long barrel seems to make for increased accuracy compared to shorter barrel revolvers, and the S&W 686 is a classic of this type.
