Well folks, it's a shooter alright. As most of us are, I was paranoid about this used gun, thinking I might get a lemon or something someone had abused. I can honestly say that the cylinder lockup is one of the tightest I've ever seen. Much better than my newer Smiths.    Bullseyes have a 6 shot group offhand at 21 feet.   
Sorry I haven't been around lately. I love the recent looks. @Orgetorix what kind of buttons are those on your blazer? @MoneyWellSpent, I love that look.
For me, I just don't like their designs. The ones I've seen have been clunky, and wide. That's fine for someone with large hands I guess, but you can certainly get slimmer stocks out there. Besides that the aesthetics leave much to be desired.
Those are nice. I'm leaning toward tulipwood but as yet I haven't found any that I like.
Thanks for the reply. I have Eagle Grips for my two Ruger Bisley Vaqueros and I am strongly considering them for the 686. Most of their wood offerings are rosewood, however, and I'm not seeing much in the way of exotics for an L frame. I've looked at Hogue and I don't really like what I see. I've never been a fan of them, though.
I may be biased by I would recommend Kentucky if that's what you want. You'll get some snow, but not often enough to get pissed off about it. The economy is growing really fast too. Not like Chicago (which is probably going to post a net loss in population in the next census, btw). If you want it even colder then I'd say Indiana. 
Something to drool over. The "good" hi-power (w/Esmeralda stocks). I've been curious over the Nighthawks but the price is a bit high considering you can have a T series for less.  
 I have two. A T series from the 1960s that is one of the nicest shooters I've ever had. I also have a MK III which is ok. My suggestion is to try and find a vintage T or C series. The new production models are fine, but they aren't anything special.   You should be scared. I moved here from Kentucky and the shock was terrible. I can't wait to move back to a free state.
