I have come to accept I can't buy every Smith I happen upon. I also realize, however, that money, no matter how high you stack it, just isn't as satisfying to possess as a fine revolver.
If you need that cash to be liquid, don't spend it on that pistol, but if your intend is to stack it up, I'd rather it be in the form of a gun I can fondle and admire, and especially one I can shoot. In a pinch you can always sell it and recoup the money.
Life is short my friend, if you really want that 686 I say buy it.
