I really don't want to as I have had some issues in the past, but can get a decent deal on a 94 in polished stainless. I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive revolver that I don't have to worry about getting beat up. My primary use would be as a plinker for my kids and for something new shooters could learn on. I'd love to go with a 617, but have other expenses that are more pressing. Give them another chance or save for the Smith?
