    I only have two Security Sixes, a 2-3/4" and a 4". Both of them are a pleasure to shoot and the 2-3/4" makes for a very nice carry gun.

    I would love find a short one.:rolleyes:

    I saw one at the Butte show, but another guy beat me to it (Speed Six for $350). He was letting his wife hold the gun to see how it fit her hand. Dang! a perfect fit. The whole episode was killing me inside. They had some pink Charter Arms on the table, why did she have to buy my gun? Oh well, maybe next time.

    I bought the grips, then I found a gun for them.......

    Found a rare pair of Farrant grips at a gunshow for $15 (the seller didn't know what they were, or what gun they were for). I knew they weren't for a S&W, and guessed they might be for a Ruger. After confirming that on a friend's gun, I watched on gunbroker, and got a very nice Security Six from before the "warning", and could not have acquired a better .357. Even with the still stiff action, it shoots like a dream, and is my only .357. ................................................................................... [​IMG][/IMG]

    A 161 prefix (1986) with the heavy barrel.

    Great 357!

    My well used Service six I was allowed to buy when I retired. Had a choice between that and the wundernine that replaced it. A no brainer on my part

    My scarred up Security Six. Saw her looking desperate in a used gun case. She'd been sitting there for nearly a year, neglected and overlooked due to her disfiguring scars on her right side.
    I took her home for about $190.00 OTD. She's got a great action, very accurate, and very reliable. She handles full tilt .357mag loads (DT and BB 158gr loads, specifically) like a dream.
    She now wears Pachmyer grips and is my hiking/woods carry gun and even pulls nightstand duty pretty frequently.
    I love having a gun where I don't have to care about the finish!

    NYPD Service Six .38 Special.

    When I was first shooting, I had all Smiths, my buddy had a Ruger Security Six. I liked it, but, it just wasn't a "Smith and Wesson".

    I'm now a bunch older and smarter and appreciate what a fine revolver Ruger makes. I own and SP-101, an SPNY the Service Six and an Old Army. And, I now actively look for the old Six series.

    Here are 4 of mine (and an SP101).

    3 Security Sixs and a Speed Six.

    By the way, I have replaced those thin grips with thick ones and the slender grips are for sale. Fair offers accepted.

    Someday I WILL have a .357 Magnum, 4", Blue, Service Six.

    Just seems ever time I bid on one on GB, I get in a war with someone else. :(

    Gunbroker is probably one of the worst places to get a gun for a good price. I'm not a fan of that site... (not that it's the site's fault but the people who bid there)

    I guess it depends where you live, I have no options locally for finding new or used guns at a decent price. new go for full retail, used go for a little under retail.
    Also happy with the 3 guns i have bought off GB

    I'm not saying all online auctions are poor and I realize there are places where there are no local options. There are better auctions online like Gunsamerica.com and a few others you can Google.

    Instead of Ebay for gun related products you can try Ebang.com. They also have gun auctions.

    You have to be patient with GB, and check often. Deals come along, but not every day.
