Thanks for the comments guys!
@3482jl: I'm pretty sure I like the Ruger more only because of sights and grip. The 686 I had also had a 4" barrel but it had gigantic Houge grips on it and the adjustable sights. I learned from that revolver that I enjoyed fixed sights a lot more and that I just don't have that big of hands. I'd still like to have another 686 one day, but for now I'm perfectly content with this being the only .357 I own.
@AmbroseLee: Right now I do not carry this concealed mainly because I do not have a decent (read: concealable) holster for it at this time. I hope to change that down the line but right now it is not a priority. When I do carry it, it generally rides in a cheap Uncle Mike's OWB holster. I usually only do this in the woods while hiking/creeking though. When I do get a holster I will carry it.
