I vote 1. (and I really dig the Armscor stuff) I'd probably jump at any S&W revolver I could lay my hands on for under $350.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

Unfortunately I missed my chance.

New question should I get the M200 or the M206?

It is hard to offer an opinion if I don't know the reasons you are picking from these pistols. Do you just want a revolver?

Basically yes, more of a range toy than anything. Home defense would be a plus, and a once in a blue moon (if ever) carried revolver. If it is carried, it'll be more for like "oh it's summer and it is pouring rain out. I don't want to get any of my other guns soaked."

Im going off the track and say get a Ruger LCP(x) or SP101. I dont know much about Armscore but I do know Ruger and they make great revolvers.

If you ever plan on becoming a 1940s detective, you're gonna need the snubbie.

My Dad has a SP101. I'm not really a wheel gun, so I was looking for something cheap that I could fool around with at the range. You can't beat Armscor's (RIA) lifetime warranty.

OK If you plan on carrying go snubbie if you are mostly going to the range the 4" 4" is also a better choice for home defense and your wife or GF cant limp wrist a revolver.

$200 each or so?

That's $60 more than the smith, so I say both.

But if only one is an option, go with the bigger one. I don't find snubbies as fun to shoot as a larger frame revolver. Snubbed are Still very fun mind you, just not as much Smile
