The 4" gun fits nicely into a good holster and is easily carried as a concealed carry arm.

I've been through many .357 Magnums, Model 27s and 28s, Pythons and Troopers, and the Model 586 remains my choice.

That is an absolutely gorgeous collection. I'm jealous.

I'll have to admit I let that 4" Model 19 go. I went to my favorite BBQ shop one day carrying it, and came home with this one:



Not a bad deal, especially from the BBQ place:

Same here! I'll just add I'll take my gp100. Wouldn't mind having a smith but can't afford one right now.
