Thanks guys for all the suggestions. I have decided to look around for a used single six convertible.

I carry a 22 magnum revolver around the farm every day. A 22 magnum revolver gives better ballistics than a 22LR out of a rifle in a much handier package.
I have two Single Sixes, a 5 & 3/4" and a 6 & 1/2". I also have two Heritage Rough Riders, a 6 & 1/2" and a 3 & 1/2" Birdshead.
Believe it or not, the long barrel Heritage is more accurate than either Ruger.
You can spend $300+ on a used Ruger, or less than $200 on a new Heritage. Your call.
FWIW, the next firearm I purchase will be a Heritage with adjustable sights and 9" barrel.

How's the action on yours?Is the dbl action slick enough for informal speed work?
The triger is still kinda stiff but yeah I can dump em if I want to. Im thinking about seeing if my lgs can make it more like my ruger speed six.
