Finally got to shoot my S&W Model 586 .357 . I inherited the gun when I was 16 after my dad passed away. I never got a chance to shoot it until this semester at college when a couple of my friends took me to the range. This gun kicks ass, and definately packs a big punch. It used to have the wood grips, but I put the rubber ones on because I had to regrip after every shot with the wood grips. I've been to the range 3 times now to shoot it and my groupings are getting pretty good. Im planning on buying an xd-9 next week for concealed carry. Any tips or pointers for a noob?
