First off, let me say that Impact Guns is a great place to buy guns. They are very low key and friendly. I used the email notification service to let me know when the gun was in stock. I had a very good experience and will probably buy from them again.
I just purchased this 6" Model 686 to replace the one that I sold over 25 years ago to finish my college education, so this gun has some sentimental value to me already.
One thing I like about the .357 Mag is the ability to shoot .38 Special bullets. It has hardly any recoil and allows recoil adverse shooters to have a good time. My wife and boys (10 and 13yo) have no problem shooting this handgun, but needed a little practice pulling the hammer back.
You can also load this handgun with very powerful loads to hunt large game with. However, I would not go much larger than white tail.
We will be enjoying this handgun for years to come.
