Ya know, I've always been a semi-auto guy. Always. Until I made the mistake of looking at a used 686 in a gun shop one day. This 686 has quite possibly become my favorite gun. Forget about it being a near perfect revolver. It's a near perfect handgun. The single action pull on it is amazing. It's almost as if you need only THINK about firing it. Has to be the most accurate handgun I've ever fired. OK, I'll shut up now and make with the pictures.
