Very nice! When we going shooting?
This is a discussion on First gun of the year - S&W 686 within the Defensive Carry Guns forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; My wife and I agreed to pick this up off of layaway today, and I just couldn't help myself. The gun is a S&W 686-5 ...
My wife and I agreed to pick this up off of layaway today, and I just couldn't help myself. The gun is a S&W 686-5 4", with a 7 round cylinder and no integrated lock. The holster is from Shado leather. I can't wait to wring it out!
No gun collection is complete without at least one 686. How much did you give for it?

Good choice. I was torn between the GP100 4'' and the 686 4''. I chose the Ruger but then turned around and bought a 686 2 1/2". Sweet shooters.

As you can see by my Avatar, I have the same exact gun. It was my first. I will never part with it. Originally it was a house gun, but now I have been considering on carrying it. It shoots great and is dead-on accurate. Good luck.
I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy to carry...
It is very nice, Joe! I've been polishing it while it was in the safe for you.
LOL.. This weekend sounds great. I do have a 9mm to break in.
I like your photos.
Nice pistol and holster . My first pistol was a 6" 686 , 6 shot .
+1 I will never get rid of it . This definitely one that my son will get .
I have one.....again. I first bought it for my father-in-law for Christmas a bunch of years ago. When he died last year, my mother-in-law gave it back.
Good firearm & good memories......
I also noticed the left hand holster in the picture. I also am a leftie....
