A friend decided he wanted to sell his stepfather's old Security Six. I bought it.:D Gere are the pics and range report. Center target was double action at 10 yards. Bottom left target same distance but single action.

I always will have a special place in my heart for the Security Six.

So accurate, so rugged, so reliable.

I have had mine for close to 40 years now I believe and it is still well tight within specifications of cylinder play.

I have had to replace the trigger and hammer springs.

I hope that whomever I leave it to when the time comes can still enjoy it like I have.

To me the Security Six compares to the GP200 like a WWII Jeep to a Hummer. Never understood the change. I can comfortably carry a Security Six all day but not so the GP100.

A buddy of mine carried a gray/grey 1976 model Security Six.

I had a stainless Service Six in my breakfront holster.

It was my second Ruger revolver, the Redhawk .44 Magnum
was my first.

Right now I'm thinking of trading for a .45 ACP/>45 COLT
REDHAWK, but know it would be too big and heavy for me
to carry.

I have this:

and my CZs and PPS M2 for that.

I've only owned one GP100 and that was a Wiley
Clapp stainless .357 that was also a bit heavy to
carry.

The WC had the very best trigger I've ever encountered on
a Ruger DA revolver.

Should I buy the blued version this next year, I do hope that it
has a beautiful trigger as well.


Enjoy that vintage Sec6 and and buy a GP100 as a buddy.

I once had a three inch GP100 that I really liked and shot great. I was an Arizona Ranger for three years, and was when I had the GP100. First couple of times carrying it on duty really made me miss the Security Six. I upgraded to a four inch Mod 57 S&W 41 mag. It was actually lighter, Winchester Silvertips were comfortable to shoot as well.:)

Geeze the trigger is like the LC9s? That's darn good for DA revolver. You think it had a trigger job or you think that it is stock?
Shooter13.......that Bisley must be awesome.
