    Another "It followed me home from the gun store"... thread.. :)

    I decided I wanted to pick up a revolver for my birthday which was last week. So I got off shift this morning and my boys were with the mom-in-law till this afternoon. Perfect time to head to the gun store and see what they had or what might be interesting. I was in the store all of 10 minutes before I was signing all the forms for my new-to-me toy.

    I wanted a nice revolver since I had never owned one before and would like to start adding some to my collection. This puppy will be a back up home gun, the gun I'll stow away in my truck while at work, possibly a once-in-awhile carry piece, and just a really nice range gun to play around with.

    I found a nice Smith&Wesson 686-6 .357 Magnum Stainless 2.5" barrel with unknown to me type wooden stocks. The bore is nice and clean, lock up is nice and tight, and there are no heavy blemishes anywhere on the gun. The chambers are nice and clean and the top strap doesnt have a mark on it. It looks very well taken care of. I haven't had a chance to go through it soup to nuts and clean it yet, that'll prolly happen tomorrow.

    I'll be looking into holsters and "accessories" after a couplea months so if anyone has any favorites, let me hear about them! Time for some gun porno!!

    That is one fine revo you got there. I think that is the shortest L frame offering. Make a great carry piece if concealable, even if larger and heavier than the j frames - also makes .357's more comfortable.

    Nice grips - whatever they are.

    Very nice, indeed!

    I see that you've taken pictures on the car seat...can't exactly take it into the house yet?

    I was thinking the same thing. I have had a few of those...

    Best is to take an empty gun case with you when you leave the house. When it comes back, it appears to be the same as when it left. (just a little heavier)

    Nice buy, happy birthday!

    Very Pretty
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    This forum is leading me down the road to sin. So you leave the house with the gun case, empty, right?
    Couple threads above and you'll see I'm thinking of taking in a stray Witness myself. It's entering the "Witness Protection Program"
    ps. awesome pistol. I have that in the 66-2. I will never sell it.
