For the past few years I've been greatly favoring my shorter barrel Security-Sixes; however, a few days ago I packed the shorter 4-inch and 2.75-inchers away, deciding they might be distracting. I wanted to see just how attached I could get to the 6-inch model. (I also needed to work on the action as I had my 4-incher.) I'd completely forgotten how nice these guns were and wondered how many of you here use them on a regular basis, carry them hunting or use them outdoors? I'd been thinking about them with all the GP-100 posts and threads I'd seen here and elsewhere. It's bough back many memories of the first 6-inch model I bought back in 1978, I think. The reason I got it was mostly out of ignorance. Many gun hacks back then were claiming that you weren't really getting magnum velocities out of barrels less than six inches! I therefore sold my 4-inch S&W 13 (which I've always regretted) and bought a stainless steel Ruger Security-Six 6-inch, which was a purchase I, at the time, did not fully appreciate, especially with those skinny wood grips! Anyway, if you have any photos of yours, please post them.
