686 SSR for IDPA

So I got lucky and found a 686 SSR. Picked it up last week. I plan on spending the next several weeks dry firing to get used to shooting it and drawing from a holster. Already ordered a comp-tac holster in red and Backorder Hogue Grips with no Grooves Oversize Butt with checkering in Tulipwood. Next are speedloaders and holsters for them.

Anyone have any tips, thoughts, advice you could give me on gear/ equipment/ IDPA SSR/ etc...?

Gotta love the 686! If you plan on shooting magnums, I would suggest going with smooth grips. Ahrends tactical or retro grips are fantastic. I prefer the tactical with finger groves myself.

Ray at Lobo Gun Leather can help you with your holster needs. Let him know your shooting IDPA and he will set you up.

After doing a little research it seems like Ready Tactical is recommended by several wheel gunners shooting ICORE, USPSA, and IDPA

Did anyone else read the OP? He has already ordered a holster and replacement grips so I don't think recommendations for those are of much use at this point although his grips are backordered so he may be able to stop that order and get something else if he decides to.

I like the Safariland Comp 2 speedloaders for your L-frame and they should meet IDPA requirements. Jet-loaders are faster but may not meet IDPA regulations as they are much bigger. Safariland also make speedloader holders that should work well.

I'm a fan of the Comp-2's as well. I used to shoot a 586 and 681 in ipsc in the 80's & 90's; never shot idpa with a revolver. The comp-3's were faster, but not practical for 'real' use, and the comp-2's are faster than hks (at least in my hands), so the comp-2's are what I've settled on for most all my revolvers that I can find them for.

On grips, I like the hogues on an L-frame, but settled on uncle mike's 'boot grips' since they concealed a little better and fit my wife's hands considerably better. (Our bedroom gun is an L-frame with +P's in it.)

I have both the Com 111 and the Jetloaders. I prefer the Jetloaders over the Com 111's. The exposed springs give you more of a direct purchase on the loader. Both work.

Take Care
