Picked up one of the short model S&W 69s. Been looking at them for while but never liked the 4" model. Added a Pachmeyer Renegade Grip in smooth dark laminate wood that made it look a bit less sterile. Have only tried the 240 XTPs in it to date but it shoots nice. Wanted a Galco Silhouette High ride for it like I have for my 625 but they were $90+ and most everyone was out of stock. I found a near new one at a thrift store in Scottsdale AZ on line picked it up shipped for $30 can't beat that [censored].

Plan to try some 180's in it shortly. Last time I did 180s in a 44 Mag and shot pigs it did not end well. But I figured for this gun I would give them one more shot.

Will keep you in the loop on how she does.

Nice choice!

I picked one up a few months ago to replace my 629 in the same barrel length. I didn't figure to miss the extra shot and liked the way it felt in the hand. Will definitely be carried more than shot.

Looking forward to your report on the 180s.
