Mas, I highly respect your professional opinion so let me see if I can get this question out the way I want to. First off, I hope it's ok to post this here as it doesn't fit into any other category in the GATE forums. My question is in regards to S&W revolvers and the internal lock. I want to still carry my new gen 686 which has the internal lock. I have heard some (supposedly true) internet stories (taken with a grain of salt of course) that there have been some issues with the locks engaging by themselves when the gun was fired? Is there any truth to this and is it something that I should be concerned with in a carry gun Smith and Wesson brand or otherwise? It may sound like a stupid question but I would really hate to have a problem like this if I should ever need my sidearm (God forbid.) Again, I'm sorry if this question isn't exactly in context to the SD forum but since it sort of relates, I'll grit my teeth and see if I get scolded (LOL!) Thanks and take care.
