...but wife says no more purchases unless I get rid of something.
Something? If the wife knows how much you really appreciate guns, she may want to rethink that ultimatum
I have a couple of flavors of Mod 19's and shoot the 6" often. (Afraid I'll get the shiny one dirty so I don't shoot it much.)
Seriously, the Mod 19, "Combat Magnum" is a classic. Look up Bill Jordan, Border Patrol agent and author of "No Second Place Winner" and you will find the story of how the Mod 19 became the first K frame .357 in 1956. You may get a little bored shooting it though. They tend to put all the bullets in the same hole.
