Looking to start - understand the 686 would be better for recoil but is the 67 easy to shoot for competition?

I shot competition for years. PPC format used a heavily customized revolver. The 686 would probably serve you better for competition. It will give you a more solid platform and you will never wear it out. The 67 is a great gun and would serve you well. I would just prefer the 686. JMHO

Check out the 686 SSR Pro series revolver. I dont have one but have handled them and they seem to handle more like a K frame. They are somewhat lighter than a regular 686, but still are heavier than a K frame to help with recoil

What type of competition? I shot PPC with a Davis modified Model 64 but was able to equal those scores with a 6鈥, Model 686.

So, it might depend on what you are competing in.
