    Had a Ruger SecuritySix for twelve years....bought it when they 1st appeared in 1975 (?) although it was a blued version w/ a 6" barrel. It was a nice handgun w/ decent accuracy and like all Rugers...well built. Killed a deer at 40 yrds w/ it when I lived in Michigan, 158 grn. SJHP...Sierra...hand loaded w/ H110. I was shooting w/ some friends back then that had Smiths....sold my Security Six and bought a S&W Highway Patrolman....nice weapon also...sold that eventually and like the old saying...wish I'd never done that...today...I would like to have them both back.

    Yer all nitpickin me these days..;)

    In my feeble minds defense though.. Not all the SP101s are 5 shooters... The SP101 in .327 fed mag is a six shooter.. HAH! :D

    Thats the venerable ol 6" security 6, the little brother of the original Ruger Redhawks.

    I LOVE RUGER"S. I suggest an SP101 or GP100 or even an LCR.

    the local gun shop has a sp101 with a 4 inch barrel. im hoping to find a decent used one. or even a 686 used.

    Lotsa metal on those babies! My wife carries a Taurus light weight. I'd trust it in a fight but its no fun at the range. I carry a Charter Arms Bulldog in .44 & have for decades. Two guns. Not heavy but good steel & well made. Excellent trigger. Crappy sights but its for close range "haft-toos". Groups well.
    I'm not one for a pistol which takes away from my ability to SA shoot. Never know when you may need to hit your spot at the outside range of the gun & hit sumthin!
