1972 was the first year of the Security Six. Its when Ruger invented the best DA wheelie yet, then in 1988 they broke my heart and stopped making them,

Under your user CP you can put pictures in an album. Then from the album hi-light and copy the address in the window entitled "BB Code". It will start [IMG]http: and so on.

I've got the same gun, in stainless. And I agree, the Security Six is an excellent revolver...my daughter has already claimed it as hers, after I croak.

PS- To everyone hocking me for pictures, mesinge2's six is identical (LOL)
You click on the "Paper-Clip" on the tool bar (3trd from right on top) hook up your camera and upload your pics. Takes about 4 min. The line: "It looks like that one" is pretty lame man , no offense, I'm just helping you out. If I post up a range report I try to save and/or snap my better papers, also.

Don't take it personally, but pics add so much to a thread, especially one like you titled. . . I was expecting at least a shot of your best grouping. I don't show all my guns, but here's my GP100:

It's the same thing as the Security Six, but the barrels are usually full shrouded. i have seen a half lugged GP100 at a gun show, left to pick up the cash and it was gone by the time I got back. . . But I don't find the 4" GP muzzle heavy in the least. In fact, the balance is one aspect of both the GP100 and SP101 that I believe aids the shooter in having such an effective weapon.

They are so solid it brings the user's confidence up, knowing that they have a "real" machine to fight with.

P.S. My GP100 now has Meprolight night sights, THEY ARE AWESOME!!!

Ok I will give it a try, this weekend. I didn't save the targets though, so I guess that gives me a good reason to take it back to the range.
