    Either a Ruger GP100 or a S&W 686p. My preference would be the Smith. :) 7 shot six-shooter? Yes please.

    I have one. We should go shooting sometime. I'll let you shoot the heck out of it.

    Another vote for the Ruger GP100. I have the blued 6" version and really enjoy it at the "range".

    Take a look st Rugers SP101. Its only a five shot but it feels great in the hand and shoots really well.

    686 with 4" barrel. My current favorite and most accurate handgun.

    Agreed. But I've got the 5" barrel with hi-viz sights....and it's a tack driver.

    Hey man not tryin to insult you or anything... But are you sure that's a 686? I've never seen or heard of a 686 without a full under-lug.

    No insult taken. It was a limited production model...only one year. The grips and the 5" barrel were part of the package. I haven't seen very many...it was made in 2005

    Ahh I see. That's pretty awesome. I'm actually a fair bit jealous.
