    Just got my first pistol, S&W 686 6" ported 357. Can't wait to get my coupon so I can pick it up and get it on the range. Thanks for all the help.

    Will post pic as soon as I get it.

    A 686 is a fine choice and it will serve you well. I've had my 3 inch 686+ longer than any other handgun in my collection...

    You selected a fine weapon in one of the best all around calibers out there. I'm looking forward to the pics

    Hey Bill, what "coupon" are you talking about? Do you need something special to pick it up?

    CA357 here you need to print out a form and fillout. Bring it, the recipt for the gun and permit to the county clerk. They make copies of everything and send it to the judge. He looks them over and then signs it. Then the coupon get sent to you by mail. Coupon goes to gun shop and finally you get your gun.

    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.

    Congradulations on a fine sensable choice. You have one of the few guns that is good for most all ORDINARY situations. And by the way you didnt purchace a pistol. A pistol is a self loader, you purchace a revolver or a handgun, not a pistol.
