As promised in my introduction, here is a picture of my first Ruger, purchased new in 1984, a Security Six .357.

After I bought it, my father liked it so much he basically confiscated it to use as his service revolver to replace his Smith & Wesson Model 10. Although he would let me shoot my own gun occasionally, I didn't really get it back until he bought his Glock in the mid 90's.

When they first came out a fellow airmen and I bought consecutive serial number six inch Security Six revolvers. When he got out he asked to buy mine as a gift to his father. Understanding the sentiment I sold it to him. But it was a gun I have always regretted selling.:rolleyes:

I also owned a Security Six...bought it used when I first started shooting from a friend at work.

Sold it and a Ruger P89DC to finance my OM Ruger Bisley Vaquero in 2005...

Shooter13,

That sure is a nice looking revolver. I might have to add one of those to my ever growing list of future purchases.

Yours too Fireman...!!

BTW...that Vaquero above is chambered for .357 Magnum / .38 Special...and I do prefer single actions.

Awesome caliber(s)...

Here's a .44 Magnum / .44 Special...single action circa 1982

Wow, your Ruger is in excellent condition, considering it from 1984. You have kept kept your gun very nicely. I think I should learn from you. My Ruger LCR is only 2 years old and now it is looking very old to me.

Hah. The owner's manual for the LCR recommends Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black for touching up the finish. Used it on mine already, and I've had the gun only a week.

The LCR ain't pretty anyway; it seems to me to be a small fistful of 'practical'.

Thanks for the compliment gunnerjacky but there's probably nothing I can teach you that you don't already know about taking care of your gun. The aluminum and polymer components of your LCR must just withstand use differently than the stainless of my Security-Six.

...a small fistful of 'practical'.
Great statement. I'm going to have to remember that.

well, that holster hasn't quite passed muster; I'm dubious of the open muzzle end, and it doesn't stay in some of my pockets during the draw. Got me a Sticky™ that suits me better.

I have the LC9 and the Blackhawk in the pants holster stays put during the draw and re-holster. I would think they would have one for your LCR.:)

Wow that is awesome my first Ruger was the security six. My Wife got it as an anniversary present. What a great shooting revolver. My grip is a little different I will post a picture I just have to get it out of a digital camera I have that's how long ago it was as well. I wonder if the inside and or frame are really close to the SP101?
