If you want to have some fun, try shooting some .38spl wadcutters in those 686s! It's like shooting a .22!

I have a 686 Mountain Gun 7-shot.  Its my hiking gun.  Love that thing. More accurate than I am and it has nice sexy clean lines

Just for the fun of it, try taking that short little handgun over to the rifle range and start moving the target out. It may just surprise you how well it does. Love them Smiths.

What sig said.
3 or 4 clicks up on the rear sight and 50 to 100 yards should become routine fun.

problem isnt with shooting acuratly at 50-100 yards but handgun sites are useless out that far.the front blade practicaly fills in the entire target.id like to see a group a(if it could be called that)at that renge.
i sapose just getting on target would be good.

Sight in for a six o'clock hold. Adjust sights so your target sits on top of the front sight, not covered by it.
