I love my two revolvers. The S&W M629 has served me well on countless bowling pin shooting matches and deer hunting since 1985, and my S&W M586 has stood by me since 1983. .44 Remington Magnum, and .357 S&W Magnum. Two great calibers! :D:D

If you only have two, those are great choices.
Now you need a K Frame in .38 Spl. or .22 LR. :)

You make me sad I sold my 629 earlier in the fall! It was about a 1985 manufacture based on the SN as I recall, the first handgun I bought when I turned 21 (it was used when I bought it and in my posession the last 7 years... :p )
Incidentally, I have a 4" 586 I picked up last winter that is circa 1983 based on the SN. It's a great shooting, nicely sized revolver. I'm thinking I might order a Milt Sparks BN55 or PMK for it soon. It's a bit big and heavy for regular carry on me (I'm 5' 8" and about 150, anything bigger than my cell phone on my belt looks like a tumor!) but it would be great tramping around in the woods at camp while fishing.
And I agree, every collection needs a .22LR K-frame. I also have a .357 K-frame and would gladly take a 4" pencil-barrel M-10 and M-15 to keep them company. (And an 4" N-frame .357 like the M-28 I passed on when I sold the 629. Got a new bicycle instead...)
