    Anybody out there have one of these? Never see one at gun shows or online.

    I have one , stainless with 6" barrel and target sights and wood target grips.

    My First handgun when I turned 21. Save my money and could not wait till I was 21 to go and buy it. that was 27 years ago. Still have it, not the box unfortunately, but gun is in GREAT shape.

    I had one for many years and they were the predecessor or the GP100 series. Great guns and built like tanks...

    At the time I was looking at the S&W model 19. I had heard issues about the 19's 357 calibre being on a .38's frame. Just as I purchased my ruger i had a guy I worked with had his model 19 lock up on him with 3 rounds still live in the cylinder. I was damned glad I got the ruger.

    I heart my Security Six, got one for my daughter, like to find another for my wife. I think it's the perfect handgun for everywhere but where I live. With a 4" barrel it's light, compact, easy to carry and VERY accurate. I've never understood why Ruger expanded it into the GP100. A solution in search of a problem, I always thought.

    I love Ruger .357's and a 4" stainless Security Six is my favorite of the bunch.

    I love Ruger wheel guns, especially the Security Six.
    My dad has one that I covet very much.

    I do not have a Security Six, but I do have a Service Six and a pair of Speed Sixes. Great revolvers.

    WOW! Those in stainless are PURTY! :)

    Mine is second year of production, blued 4" with aftermarket over-sized wood grips. The pawnshop guy was actually apologizing about the grips - they were UGLY! Prior owner tried to sand them to fit better I guess..... worked! They fit my hand perfectly! One big reason I bought the gun. I refinished them.
    I think he also had the action worked on - the trigger is superb!

    I bought this Security Six at a gun show a while back & it's rapidly become a favorite gun at the range. It's never missed a beat & is always up to the task, no matter what I feed it. My daughter wants me to will it to her, and I made the mistake of letting my mother shoot it one day...she almost wouldn't give it back!:D

    It originally had these wood grips...

    But my daughter said it was hard to hang onto, so I installed these Hogues. It's easily her favorite gun nowdays.

    Not to mention it can be quite photogenic at times...

    I'd love to get my hands on one. May get a SP101 3" as well.

    I have been looking for a Security Six with a 2.75” barrel forever to go with my 4" Security Six
    (Also below). My buddy owns a gun shop and calls me when something on my wish list comes in.
    Long story short I picked this up today:

    How is the Security Six different than the GP100?

    I would equate the Security Six to a K frame Smith and the GP100 to a L frame Smith. The frames are practically the same size, but the barrel is tapperd and lighter making the balance better for the Security Six. Also, every Security Six I have fired has had a better trigger than every GP100 that I have fired (and I own two SIXs and one GP100).

    Oh, I know I also have a model 19, but I couldn't think of a way to explain the differences between the Security Six and the GP100. It was a poor analogy. :(
