New GP100 and used 686. Grip frame design easily accommodates a wide variety of custom grips. More specific than /r/guns but more broad than ccw etc. I'm looking at either a 5" Ruger GP100 or a 5" S&W 686+ pro. CA Central Coast The GP100 was made to compete against the then-new S&W 686/586 models. I want a .357 and my understanding is both of these can also fire 38 special? Smith double breaks sooner which is nice.
