After I started reading the Revolver forum, I had to dig out my old Security Six 357. Put it away 30 years ago when I switched to my Glock for duty carry. I had cleaned and oiled it up and tucked it away as a keepsake from the past. Found it tucked away in the closet, unwrapped it, and found it to be in great shape. I sure liked that gun, got me out of a couple of fixes. Putting her in my active collection] IMG_20170729_144706907.jpg

I like the Speed/Security six. There's just something about it. I know the GP is a "better" more modern gun but I'd rather have a Six.

Bringing the gun out of storage had to bring back a lot of memories. Sleek looking revolver.

I like my Shields and Glocks a lot, but I always knew my Security Six would always go Bang and never jam. Sure like the looks of that Service Six.
Now I like to carry my LCRs, easy to conceal.

Both the Security and service six can handle heavy loads and carry easy all day. Will always have mine. Great gun to teach grandkids with also.:D

I agree Oldhand, they are great guns to teach youngsters with. I will never get rid of my Security Six either. Normally when at the range will use .38s and when finishing up will go with a cylinder of .357s to save wear on the gun.

I just bought my first Ruger. A Security Six. I now need to find some nice wood grips. Any suggestions appreciated. Found this gun at my LGS.

I traded a bought used Security Six and a bought used P89DC ( $200 apiece ) for a brand new (in 2005) Ruger Bisley Vaquero in .357 Magnum...best trade I ever made:

Found a security six in my local pawn shop today for 400 otd. Is this a good deal? Haven't seen many of these lately View attachment 10238

I'd offer 250. Not worth 400 in that condition.

For a comparison, my LGS had this service six on consignment for 350 and I ended up getting it for less on a trade:

I wish I could find any .357 for 250 in my neck of the woods. Older Taurus go for 300 plus around here, and they are always asking an arm and a leg for anything of higher quality.

At the local pawn rip off that gun would be at least $600. They want an arm and a leg of really shooter poor grade guns that $250 was a better price. I don't even think about dickering on price because I don't want to hear them come unglued if I offered what the gun is actually worth. This is the same pawn shop that said a Kel-Tec 22 magnum can also shoot 22lr ammo because of how the magazine is made.

As few of these as I see around here anymore I figured I would get it, give it some attention and the carry and shoot the snot out of it!

At gun shows in the Houston area I've seen Security Six's priced at around $275 or so.
Come to think of it... Don't believe I've seen any lately and they ain't making no more of them.
Could they be getting rare? Will collectors go crazy for them in a few years? :dunno:

If I can get the gun I want, price is secondary.
More than once I've traded away a gun (for less than its worth) to get a gun I wanted.
Money takes a back seat to the gun a person wants... ;)

Found a couple on GunBroker with one -or- no bids starting at $355 & $299.

Maybe $400 ain't all that much too high after all. :headscratch: Some people are trying to get $500 ~ $700 on GB.

True I have gotten the "worse end" of trades if it got me what I wanted. It all comes down to what you want, and what you are willing to give for it.
