    Yeah some are, my dad loves his S&Ws but for my $$$ I'll take a ruger.

    I absolutely love the redhawk, gp100, Blackhawk, super Blackhawk line.

    If it's anything like the LC9 it is a nice gun.

    Looks like I might be adding this Beretta to my personal collection if I don't sell it by the end of the year . . .

    My dad has the new lc9 that dosent have the manual safety. Is that the same thing? If so, it's a solid cc pistol, not much fun at the range but carries well, is reliable and fairly accurate.

    main difference is the lc9s is striker fired, so the trigger probably has an easier draw compared to a DOA. I saw one on sale and I was thinking about getting one, but I might have to wait until after the holidays.

    Looks like this cockstain breathed life into a 7 year old thread, and managed to spark an informative conversation...A lot can change in 7 years... Technological advances are moving along at breakneck speed... You should try to keep up...

    Sheeeeiit, looking back at this thread, I remember when I paid like $600ish for my GP-100 like 5 years ago and they're damned near $1k now. The exchange rate has been keeping me out of the market, I can't seem to get over what pricing was like when the dollar was near par.

    Always forget you're up there. Damn that sucks, 525-675 is par here depending on model/options

    Shitty part is, my "new" coworker is a gun nut too (hunting rifles) and watching him browse stores and retailers all day doesn't help matters. I think If I ever feel compelled to buy anything, it will likely be because it's on sale and I may have a hard time finding it again, at such a "low" price in the future.

    I have a 686 and love it, mine is in the 6 shot though but still with the 6'' barrel. It's very accurate, so much so it's very forgiving to a newbie shooter like me. However I expect you to pay a little more than $600. New they are like $800+ unless you are buying used. But even then when I was looking to get a value on mine (got it for free) I was seeing used ones still in the $700 range.

    Hard to beat a Ruger GP100 for the price, build guilty, and pure awesomeness of it.

    I don't even look at s&w revolvers anymore and that's coming from somebody who carries one in the field 7 days a week for work....in Alaska. For me it's ruger redhawks all the way. Gp100s are awesome but 357mag won't cut it up here.

    I think u should get something that is not burdensome to carry whatsoever. That's why I have a S and W bodyguard 380 semi. Its nice being armed and never worrying about printing with a simple uncle mikes pocket holster.
