This old Ruger security six has won a lot of shoots back in it's days and has never let me down. I retired it about ten years ago, but it would still kick butt if I let it go. Maybe someday but not anytime soon. ( I hope anyway)

The real appeal of the GP100 (over a security six) is that I can get the GP100 NIB, and I know that I have been the only owner of it, so I know it will always be in pristine condition.

Not sure if you are aware or not, but in order to release the cylinder:

On a Colt, you pull the latch.
On A Smith, you push the latch.
And on a Ruger, you push a button, I personally prefer this method.

I agree with you. Every firearm I've ever owned has been cleaned and serviced after every shoot. I won't ever sell this gun because it has been right up there with my High Standards and Colts when I used to shoot competition. HECK, I'm considering being buried with it.
My wife wants to cremate me and strow my ashes in the yard so she can look out the windows and see me " Blowing in the wind". That's my favorite song.

So do I. Blue, if you've got a line on one and decide not to move on it, drop old Donn a PM.

The 19/66 would be a great choice since you're going to be shooting mostly 38s. My Six Series retained their tightness and lockup better than my 66 with the stouter 357 loads. I sold my 66 and regret it, but I will never sell my Six Series guns. Here are a couple: Security Six and Service Six.

Just fired my dads smith&wesson highway patrolman 357 mag revolver. The gun is way older then me and hasnt been cleaned ever until I got it. It's a sweet firing piece. Enjoyed it a lot. It's a heavy piece though.

I love my GP100 6" barrel and I'll agree with those that say it's accurate:



12 rounds .38 special at 10 yards:
