Will post pic as soon as I get it.
I've always been a Colt 1911 fan, but my son recently bought me a S&W 686 with a six inch barrel, and I love it to death. It has one heck of a lot more range than the .45 ACP, and it's accurate way out to yonder.
Sight it in at one hundred yards, and, with the loads I use, you're only 2.5 inches high at fifty yards, and 2.5 inches low at 120 yards.
Ed McGivern could, with iron sights, hit a man-sized silhouette at six hundred yards with a .357 Magnum.
The 686 is one fine firearm, and it's now my carry every day weapon of choice.
