Best Features: First, a caveat. The 686 with a 2.5-inch barrel shown here was very popular with the ladies I spoke with, but that model is not currently in production. While the 4-inch-barrel version may not be as easily concealable, it's still an awesome revolver. Weighing in at more than two pounds, this revolver is the second heaviest on the list, and is double that of some here. Despite this, ladies seem to love the feel of it in their hand, and shoot it well. If you can find a model with a 2.5-inch barrel, definitely check it out.
