I tried one today at the gun club. It was S&W day at the club. All the reps were there and they had the full line for everyone to try out. I tried a variety of guns including the .223 M&P rifle and the 9mm M&P pistol. The one thing that really grabbed my attention was the 686 revolver. One of the nice girls at the range suggested I try it knowing that I really never liked revolvers. Wow. This this thing is sweet. Double action is smooth and single action is super crisp. With .38 spl there's almost no recoil. It literally shoots like a .22 LR. I shot the tightest group ever for a gun I'd never shot before. Most guns I need a few shots to get used to the sights. Not this one. If you have not tried one I suggest you give it a shot.
