    I've been tempted to dump mine lately to fund other project, but the thing is such a great little summer gun to carry.

    That's what I've been trying to go by but I'm thinking of selling my 6in 686 to pick up a snubbie.

    I guess right now with the next couple years in doubt as far as legality of certain firearms goes, it might be prudent to sell everything you will be able to buy for a long time (pump shotguns, bolt action .22s) and buy things you won't be able to buy later (AR-15, Tantals, w/e).

    :werd: I should but prices are way too high and I'm not particularly interested in expanding my rifle calibers past 7.62x39 and .223/5.56.

    I only subtract a gun from my collection with the intent of replacing it with something more capable. The only gun I've sold was my CMMG bargain bin AR to build my own AR that is far better.

    I do want a 6" 686 as my random wheelgun though. :hsd:

    No...I just haven't been able to find a used one for a decent price.

    While that's nice and all, it's not an AIRWEIGHT. It's stainless...so kinda heavier...

    Look in the EE. I had a few good finds in both finishes when I was looking.

    When you need a lightweight carry revolver, you turn to Smith & Wesson's Small Frame Airweight Series. They are the original aluminum, small frame revolvers chambered in .38 S&W Special +P.

    That revolver weighs 15oz which S and W considers an "airweight" that said the other revolver is ported but still weighs the same amount.

    The "Scandium" cylinder guns are 12 oz. 3 oz is not that big of a deal for me.

    lol...no. I searched there for a used one cause all local dealers were sold OUT! Then I managed to find a new one. Beforehand, I found some stellar used ones in the EE.
