Im trying to decide on which .357 revolver I want to get and want to see which one you guys would pick. The ones I'm looking at are a Smith&Wesson 686+, Taurus 627 tracker, Ruger GP100? All I would use it for is home protection and for the range.

I prefer the S&W wheelguns, but you can't go wrong with either them or the GP100. I own a 686+ and have shot several GP100s and other 686s. The 686 family tends to have the best timing and trigger generally of any currently produced revolver on the market. Plus 7 rounds of .357 is nice.

I really llike my S&W 27. But its a BIG HONKING revolver. Made on the .44 frame. .38 wadcutters barely recoil. I loaded up some original spec 158gr ammo and it didn't even flinch! Carried it for about a third of my LE career and I've even killed a deer with it. It'll go to my son when I finally leave this world.

I've got a S&W with a 2" barrel. Can't remember which model it is. The trigger break in single action is super crisp and the trigger pull in double action is the smoothest I have ever felt (being Glock owners we don't really have that luxury...)

Me and my girl love shooting .38 special ammo through it for fun and plinking, throw some .357 mag ammo in for real fun and protection in the woods. We live in Colorado and have to watch for woodland predators when out camping with the family.

The two inch barrel has some serious muzzle flip with .347 mag ammo, I would like to get a 4" or 6" barrel to compensate felt recoil.

Can't go wrong with a S&W... Police used them for decades

Thanks for all your input I'm Defiantly going to look at the S&W haven't been able to find a GP 100 out of stock everywhere so it will probley be the S&W or the Taurus whatever one feels better.

Just picked up a Smith & Wesson 686 so I'm a little partial. 7 shot unfluted cylinder, 5 inch barrel, .357mag/.38spl+P. Shoots like a dream.

A Gen4???? For $499???? First of all, you suck.:p Second the Gen4 19's have been all but unicorns around here lately. Plenty of other Gen4's but no 19's even the local GT Distributors has been out. Even then all the LGS's sell them for $549-$569.

Congrats on the purchase price and the find! I want another Gen4 19 but not having any luck. In December and early January we were covered up with them......now, unicorns.

MikeP and glocknloaded - I misread the question. I got a G26 gen 4 for $499 not a G19 gen 4. I'll call the LGS when they open today and find out if they have any and the price. Must have been having a "senior" moment. ;-) But, even though the eye sites going, it was still a great price. :)
