GP100 - Medium frame DA/SA

SP101 - Small frame DA/SA

Blackhawk - Large frame, single action

Red Hawk - Large frame, DA/SA

Vaquero - variation of the blackhawk with more traditional appearance

Why six? "cause we're all cowboys at heart! It may get empty quicker, but you can reload it sooner. So you can load one , skip one, load five. So you have an empty chamber for your "burying money"- I know a little small for that especially nowdays.
Seriously, mine is the old style (no hammer block), when teaching firearms safety it allows me to teach the Skeeter Skeleton's load one "bean", skip one "bean", load four "beans", cock and lower onto the empty chamber-as most old sixguns operated including Colts.

Single six is fine, but a little pricy. I've got a birdshead Heritage which was cheap, ($165) I bought for my wife because of it's appearance, cost, and it was the first gun she (we) every owned. She is an antique collector and that pistol has the right look. It was a Christmas present 10 years ago...fairly accurate for fixed sights, but they did need a bit of tweaking.

I love my Single-Ten. I just use it for plinking and range shooting so I don't have any need for the Mag cylinder. I really like the FO sights, too. They work great for my aging eyes!

A single action .22 makes a good understudy for the larger caliber single actions. A large caliber single action makes sense as to frame strength, comfort of grip, and ease of extraction. One-at-a-time extraction eases the ejection of swollen cases which may be difficult with multiple extraction revolvers.

I have never really felt the need to fire double action.

The Ruger Security Six is a double action 357 magnum and the Ruger Vaquero is a single action 45 long colt.
I've never fired either of these, they were my dad's and he had over 100 guns and that doesn't include the colt's that my mom gave him for Christmas every year for over 40 years.
I'm not allowed to touch the colts and have to ask permission to look at them.
My dad was barney google on here.
