Default Jailed my first revolver

Hi, All
Just jailed my first ( and not last) revolver. Smith and Wesson 686 6 inch barrel.
Wasn't sure if i wanted 4 or 6 inch. 6 inch just felt right. Seemed easier to hold on target. Trigger felt great. Frustrating 10 day wait begins.Cant wait to get her home and put some rounds down the pipe. Search for next revolver starts soon. Stupid 1 in 30.....

Don't be so selfish about the 10 day thing. All of us and you will be a lot more safe during this time, you didn't think about that part did you...

Not sure.. Was originally thinking a 4 inch k frame. either a model 19 or 66. But the 6 inch barrel just feels so right. We'll see after shooting it a while. If I had the $$$ it would be either a performance center 686 or a model 27. Who knows, maybe even a GP100...

Nice! Hard to beat a 686. Imho one of the nicest and softest shooters.

629 next? Lol. Or maybe a 586 to match the 686. Model 27? Ah the options are endless. Enjoy the new addiction.

Btw, Just ppt! No 1 in 30 .

No one ever forgets their first, especially one as beautiful and functional as a S&W Revolver.
