Yup. I have 686's in 2.5, 3 and 4 inch barrels. The leaf spring on the L frame make for a nice and steady trigger pull, and I can certainly point shoot with the 686's much more accurately than the j-frames. I also have a simply rugged holster for my 2.5 686+, but the L frame is a bit of a bear to carry all day, and the CZ 75 PCR is much more comfortable for all day carry. FWIW the 686+ 4" is my "nightstand gun."

I like the 66 and the 19 you have pictured. Nice!

OP, you have mentioned two of the most shootable handgun designs ever fielded. Excellent taste on your part. Either would serve you very well.
Sadly, although I adore my S&W Model 638 .38 Special +P J-Frame for special purpose applications, I'll be the first to observe that it is the least shootable gun I have ever owned or shot. Too-short sight radius, too-heavy trigger pull (15 pounds pull against a 1 pound gun out of the box), lots of muzzle flash, not enough ammunition on-board, slow to reload compared almost any semi-automatic, etc.
