The best laid plans for the weekend didn't work out but I managed to squeeze some time in this afternoon, I've been dying to shoot this revolver. I loaded up all 8 moons and let it rip.

The first thing I noticed is how nicely the gun balances and feels, it's just plain right. I'm not used to fixed sights so I just played with it until I got it, it's a very instinctive point and shoot for me. I did find it shot about 4" higher at 10 yards than I expected which, considering any sort of defensive situation, may not be a bad thing; no need to cover the target.

I had a good feeling about this gun or I wouldn't have stewed over it and then bought it. But, I've done that before and come away disappointed and discouraged. Not this one; it walks the walk.

Below is the last target with two moons in it, just squeezing off the rounds seconds apart, all double-action.

The Speed Six in 9 mm is a great revolver and I enjoy mine.

Nice shooting.
You are right about the balance. They were made for service, and balance was part of that. I've been around the revolver world and there are only a few that qualify for "superb balance" and bikemutt you have just discovered one of them. Happy shooting. :)

I don't have a Speed Six, but I do have a couple Security and Service Six revolvers. Here is one of my favorites.
