    IMG_3470.JPG IMG_3472.JPG IMG_3473.JPG I came across some good deals I couldn't pass up in the last week or so. I've been wanting a Glock 17L for some time. I picked this one up NIB on Gunbroker. I'm gonna hit the range early next week with it.
    The other two I just stumbled on locally. The Smith & Wesson 686 is in perfect shape. The Colt Commander has always been a favorite of mine. I was told those two guns are around 25 years old or so. Anyways, I was just as happy as can be to get them.

    Nice looking guns. The grips on the 686 look great

    When I bought this 686, I picked this one here due to the grips.

    Thanks. Yeah those grips are sharp on that Smith. A good piece of wood really sets a revolver off. I'm kinda old school but I appreciate a nice revolver every bit as much as a semi auto.

    Nice. I think you will like how accurate that 686 will be.

    I have no doubt. I've got several other's in the safe so I know what those guns can do. That 6" Smith is the perfect range gun. I used to reload a lot. I enjoyed shooting a 38 special SWC loaded with 231. I've got a few Smith's that were tack drivers with that load.
