I've been wanting to go to classes outside my local area like Gunsite and Thunder Ranch as well as others. I was hoping to be there now, but my new S&W 686 was striking light and spitting. I sent it in months ago and it's still at S&W. So far they replaced the barrel, trigger, extractor and more. I asked them after they fix the problems to also cut the cylinder for moon clips. I will either need a lot of speedloaders or moon clips for classes and I figure moon clips will make picking up my brass a lot easier. I received a sales quote for a Master Revolver Action Package. This includes some of the things I asked for, but it's not clear that it includes a moon clip cylinder. So I called them and asked. The person I talked to didn't really know and transferred me to the voicemail of someone who would know. I haven't had a callback. So it's been about three months since I sent it in and I still don't know if I'll have a revolver for classes. I could have TK cut the cylinder once I get the gun back, but that will take even longer. I could also just buy a new gun that already has the features like a Model 627, 327 or a Super GP100. I'd have to sell the 686 to avoid that option costing too much, and I don't know what problems the new gun might have. I haven't bought one yet that didn't have some issues. I've bought 4 new S&W that all had problems. One new Ruger, but the Ruger's problems were purely cosmetic. At the moment I've got that single-action and a J frame that are functional, but not suitable for most classes. I'd have to order the 627 or S-GP100, but a local shop has a 327 TRR8. I could put an RMR on it and a flashlight and look really tactical. I haven't checked it out if it has any issues because I never thought I'd be interested in that. Actually, I think the red dot might be useful for my aging eyes but I suppose it would fit on any of the options.
