This is a discussion on S&W 686 snub within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Hey All, Picked up this S&W 686 snub for occasional carry/nightstand work Sorry for the poor pics, I'll get better pics soon.......
That'll get the job done! Had a chance to shoot it yet?
What does it weigh? Bbl length?

Very nice! Congrats. Should do the job, all right.

I own a LOT of S&W's......OK I am insane BUT the 2 1/2" 686 is my ALL TIME FAVORITE. One with Crimson Trace sits on my nightstand, and it's twin rides in my car with 4 speedloaders, no rice burner riding punks going to stop my truck. :):):) If I could only grab one, it would be 686 2 1/2" I shoot SOMETHING every week and a 686 always goes along. My indoor range only goes to 50 feet and it gets boring putting cylinder after cylinder in the head.
Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!
Talking to each other here is good, but taking action is better.
I'm showing this pic to my wife, she has the odd idea I am the only person who needs a 3rd gun safe!!
Nice revolvers, there. Wish I had my own indoor range.
Now, show us the semi pistols.
Seriously. This is my ENTIRE collection of bottom feeders. The only reason I got these, 9mm CZ P-01's, is it shares same ammo with my two S&W 940's and with 32 round mags is just what the Doctor ordered in a SHTF situation, or a drive on a New York highway if I were ever to run across rice burner gangs.
I'm freaking out seeing those bolts in that holster so close to that new snubby. Nice gun, hate your holster.

Great looking snubbie! I'm sure you will find it to be a good shooter as well!
