Good point...don't overlook a good S&W revolver like the 686. They are a masterful piece and if you are in NY with a round limitation, a 4" isn't a bad idea.
I have a lot of guns and find myself carrying my S&W Governor a lot in and out of the woods. A beautiful revolver is very gratifying.
"I'm a good guy with a gun" What do I care if I give up some freedom or rights?....The Goverment will take care of me. This kind of thinking is now in the majority and it should concern you.
