Well, I'm carrying a Kimber K6s 3" with a hammer, but the quality is what Smith used to be.
As for brands like Taurus, wouldn't consider it, and the new Colt snobby, I have an Airweight.

After looking today, I'm not sure I need a 686.

I know after looking at the price, it's not what I need or want. Nice gun but there is a whole bunch of nice guns out there. A good old five shot revolver meets my wants good now. If I need more my glock 22 works for me also. I didn't come from the law enforcement side so my needs are satisfactory to me but by the same token I understand what law enforcement needs differ. My son in law is a detective so I hear and understand. It all boils down to what's important.

Well there's days that airweight seems pretty comfortable, and most likely enough.

That sounds like a good decision to me.

I had a 686+ and never liked it, bought a model 60, pretty happy with it, yes I know it is only a five shot , but is very nice for cc.
