    Well, I have been wanting a revolver for the house and have been very patient. Today I picked up a Ruger Security Six in 357 Magnum. I am pretty happy that it is a Ruger because I learned to shoot with my dad's Ruger single six 22 mag when I was a kid. Ruger just holds a spot in my heart for that reason. Second, I did want 357 mag over 38 spcl, since I can use both in it. Finally, this thing is mint. The only minor blemish I see in the frame is a very small cylinder line. The seller thought it was made in the late 80s, but according to the Ruger sight the serial number places it around 1977-78. If that is true and this thing is original, then I think it has spent its entire life in a safe. Anyways, I am pretty dang happy. Can't wait to fire it. Pictures to come...I just got home with it and am in the middle of stripping, checking it out and cleaning it to MY standards!:tongueout:

    Awesome! That's one that's on my short list if I find it in the right condition. I've been trying to talk my wife's granddad out of his, but my father-in-law took it and won't let loose of it. Maybe one day it'll make it's way into the safe, but I'm too impatient for that. Maybe I'll have twins.........

    Congratulations. My Dad had one that I shot when I was younger but it ended up getting sold after he passed away. I've regretted losing that gun and have been on the lookout for another one.

    Cool man nice shooter reminds me of my dads old S&W 357 mag that he carried as an sheriffs Deputy. Only the Ruger instead of the S&W. I'd rather have the Ruger I think.

    Congratulations,

    That's one fine looking handgun. I just got a Ruger GP100 SS, 4" for HD, not to long ago. I really like Ruger handguns, as well.:2cents:

    Those Ruger SS are built like tanks, and should be trouble free for many many rounds.
