Default Window shopping today(Guns)

I'm in Minnesota today for the holiday weekend, thought I'd check out a local Cabela's. I like the 686 but have to have it shipped to FL to a local dealer. Pondering the idea.

I have the exact 686. You will love it! Trigger is amazing. Buy it.

Im a revolver guy myself.
(was a big S&W & Colt fan...mostly classic wheelguns, 686, 586, 27, 28, etc)
But nothing compares to the Classic, hand-fitted old-school Python, imho.



1967 Colt Python 357 mag.

I love Cabela's but you can almost always find a gun cheaper elsewhere. If you do stick w/them, they should be able to ship to your local BassPro and you can do the transaction there.

I thought there was a S&W 357 round gun for around $450? Is that a different model?

Yes, its a competitor model where the barrel is weighted.

Go look at the revolvers in the high end room in Rodgers MN, some great guns!

Maybe it's just me, but for that kind of coin. I could think of many, many better ways to spend it.

The 67 Nickel will definitely be an Heirloom. (lettered and confirmed with Colt Archives)
The blued one in the bottom is a user/ shooter.

Id rather pay a little to much and get what I want than pay too little and be disappointed. 686 is a fine gun. I dont think gun prices and availability will stabilize until at least after the election and then who knows could be a year or two.

Looking at Budsgunshop.com you would be hard pressed to find any .38 under $475 at this time.
