I know what you mean. My service six does it but my security six hasn't yet. I've thought about putting some loctight on it but I may need to take the whole thing down at some point. So, I just keep an eye on it. I've looked into a little 3" 5 shot Rossi .38 for my wife. The Rugers are a little large for her and she can't handle an automatic. I think .38's, even soft loads would be okay for home defense if I'm not around. I never had to worry about such things when I was single. She really can't hit anything anyway. I'm hoping the sound would be enough to scare 'em off more than counting on her putting a bad guy down.
