When I started in law enforcement in 1972 I had a model 19 and carried it for years and shot thousands of rounds through it. When they came out I ordered and got a 586 with a 4in barrel and still have it also. They are fine weapons and extremely accurate. Never did care much for the stainless version when carrying it for on duty or off. Didn't like the possible glare it could put off. That is some fine shootin and enjoy that 686. It's a keeper.
