I have a couple of GP100s and a 686. I like all of them, but as a matter of personal preference, I prefer the GP100.

Unofficially, all polls should have the multiple choice option of "Beer".

Now that you posted it in the Revolver section, I believe you want a suggestion on a revolver.

S&W 686. (Or see if you can find a Korth .357 Magnum)

if you dont have a 686, then get one THEN worry about the short list!!!

EVERY safe should have a 1911 and a 686!!

I love my 4" Python and carry it every so often, just because. The angle of the photo makes the grip look outsized, which it is not. It is a real hard choice between this and one of my Ed Brown 1911's but between those, I never feel undergunned.
