    At $300 I feel like I stole that 586. It has a couple of spots where the blue is showing wear but the lockup on it is super tight. They have a real nice 66-4 up there. I'm actually considering trading my 686-2 in on it but I'm all tapped out for some time. If they don't sell it by the time I'm ready to put a deposit on it, I'll get it.

    Don't trade the 686-2 Euc - I am sure you may come to regret it. The 66 is I am sure more than appealing but - well - hang on in there.

    You have time on your side.

    Yeah I don't think I will actually do that. Truth be told, I know the K frame is the true revolver snob's frame, but I think I like the L frame better with my bigger mitts.

    I have the M19 on a 'K' but truth be known, the bigger the frame the better I like it! So 'L' is good and 'N' is even better

    I am sure Freud has some explanation

    Actually I may have to find another N frame sometime. The 629 just feels great and it's not that much bulkier to carry than an L frame. It doesn't point as well though.

    I think the K frame with a 3" barrel would be awesome for easy carry.

    Agreed re 'K' and carry - but that said - I did for a while tote my M28-2 4" - it was not difficult

    IIRC a M10 is also a nice carry platform, with the heavy barrel.

    Yeah I keep telling myself if I was serious I'd get a full size dedicated .38 with fixed sights. I should listen to myself.
