    Hi everyone, i bought a new sw 686 2 1/2 barrel and as of yet have not fired it. I was wondering if anyone here owns one, and if so how they liked it. My big question is, givin the short barrel length, what kind of accuracy should i expect at a reasonable distance. Thanks in advance everybody.

    Got a regular fishing pole? The next time you're on the beach, stretch the pole out as far as you can and with the tip of the pole, draw a circle around you in the sand.
    Anything inside that circle doesn't stand a chance! [​IMG]

    Short barreled guns don't give up too much in the way of accuracy.

    I had a 3" Charter Bulldog .44 Special many years ago. I was able to hit picnic type paper plates at the one hundred yard range with it. I had to elevate the muzzle so that the base of the front sight was even with the top of the rear, and could get two or three hits out of five shots at that range. I just did this as a stunt, you understand, and would never consider such a gun for long range work. But the point is, it could do it.

    I've had experiences similar to Bob.

    My 2.5" Model 66 will hit a 12" x 24" metal plate target at 100 yards. I've done this many times; usually hitting 4 for 6 from a full cylinder.
