WELCOME TO THE FORUM Fish4bass. JUDGING BY YOUR FORUM NAME, I ASSUME THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A GUN TO CARRY IN THE LOWER 48, RATHER THAN PROTECTION AGAINST ALASKAN BEARS, ETC.....

ASSUMING THAT'S THE CASE, I WOULD RECOMMEND A 4" M686+. IMHO, THE M686 IS THE FINEST .357 MAGNUM REVOLVER IN PRODUCTION. THE + VERSION CARRIES 7 ROUNDS, INSTEAD OF 6. THE VARIETY OF LOADS IN .38 SPL/.357MAG IS ENDLESS--FROM LIGHT TARGET LOADS, TO SD LOADS AGAINST HUMAN TARGETS, TO HEAVY HARD CAST HUNTING LOADS, THAT CAN PENETRATE DEEP, AND SMASH BONES---THUS TERMINATING ANY 4 LEGGED THREAT THAT YOU MIGHT ENCOUNTER.....

THE 4" LENGHT BALANCES PERFECTLY IN THE HAND, AND GIVES UP LITTLE FOR RANGE USE. IT IS EASILY CARRIED IN A BELT OR SHOULDER HOLSTER, WHILE SEATED IN A VEHICLE, OR ON AN ATV. ITS STAINLESS STEEL CONSTRUCTION, AND RUBBER GRIPS MAKE IT VERY WEATHER RESISTANT, AND DURABLE........

A NEW ONE IS COVERED BY A LIFETIME WARRANTY. I THINK IT WILL BE A RELIABLE LIFETIME COMPANION, THAT YOU CAN PASS ON TO A FAMILY MEMBER, WHEN THE TIME COMES......
