There are many reasons to own a gun. You have your reason. Maybe because you feel it is a citizen’s duty, maybe because it is fun to shoot at a target, or maybe you are a hunter.
Let’s say you are thinking about a pistol for self-defense.
These are some of the options:
- Model 686 (.357 Magnum). This wood grip stainless steel powerhouse weighs in at just over 2 pounds (34.6 ounces) with a short 2.5 inch barrel, delivers seven powerful rounds and is a popular choice for protection. It has a sleek elegance to its look, but this single/double action beauty means business.
