I was happy to find the 66 but then in the back of my mind 2 little devils named Smith and Wesson were showing me mental pics of the 686. It was horrible.
I will go back to the store when I get paid and hope the 686 is still there.

Sweet. Buy them both. If you think you will stumble onto those two revolvers all the time, you are sadly mistaken. Matter of fact, with the luck you are having, you might go to the dog track or buy a lotto ticket. (Just kidding) :)

2.5" 66s are extremely easy to carry. A good stiff gunbelt and a kydex or leather holster make it a snap.
My preferred IWB leather holsters are the FIST #20 and Lobo Gunleather IWB, both with the sweat shield option added.
Here's my 66-1. Picked it up a year or two ago at a gun show in VA. Even with shipping and FFL fee, it was still a lot cheaper than 2.5" Model 66s in my home state.
It's not loose but it is a little torn up. Nice grips!! I want to get some darker wooden ones for mine.
I took it to the range and what a tack driver. Was "exciting" with 158gr .357 haha.
The double action pull seemed a little gummy so when I got home I took the whole thing apart, cleaned and lubed it. It was VERY dirty. The cylinder and cylinder guide/sleeve were so dirty I dont think anyone had cleaner her up in 40 years. Got to get where the sun don't shine too ya know? Trigger pull is nice now but a little heavy so I ordered the Wolff spring kit for her.

Is the red ramp insert loose? I just picked up a no dash with aftermarket grips and the red ramp insert is loose... Have not cleaned it up yet.
