S&W 686 is a good overall choice, the S&W 586 is the same pistol in blue instead of stainless steel and a bit less $$. I have a 586 and it is a keeper for life.

Just bought a 4: SS Ruger GP100 tonight! I can't wait to dance with her at the range ASAP!

My new favorite:

S&W 19-3, there's just something about a vintage S&W wheel gun.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

What are those speedloaders, I have to get some of them.


BTW, I am a big fan of the 19 as well. My 19-4:

I have a 586 and love it. My next .357 will be a 627, which holds 8 rounds.

Look as police trade in 66's. Most have been shot with 95% Specials and are still very serviceable. Crimson Trace grips are available.

She's a fun gal that likes to play rough. Nothing you do will be able to hurt her, she's a tank. Let us know how you like it!
