A happy medium

For me at least anyways. Having had to sell my guns prior to a move more than 20 years ago I just recently began to build my collection once again after having moved back stateside, pandemic and all. So, I had to make a decision, should it be another S&W Model 10 or a Model 629. Reflecting on it I came across a decent enough deal on a 686-6 through PSA (a shout out to them also, I ordered the gun a week ago Friday and it was ready for pick up today at the LGS) and so I've found a happy medium....for now. So big brother has joined little brother at home.

Very nice! someday I hope to add a 686 to my stable too. I've got a couple j frames and a 27-2, but I'm always worried a little bit about the blued finish wearing or rusting because I like it so much.

Great catch on the 686. I have a 686+, 7 inch barrel, that I bought several years ago. Great shooter, loads of fun, but I found it a bit nose heavy. I prefer the 4 inch GP100 for regular use.
