Since the 70's, when I first acquired it off the used rack, it's always been there for me. It's been hunting, served an active term for a bedside go to gun, kept me company when I was working in a not so great neighborhood, provided security when I use to spend a lot of time recreating in the AZ desert, and spent time putting countless target wadcutters down range. The .357 Security Six provides a solid platform for a late night meet and greet. Add to it an extra helping of Hornady HP/XTP and a 90 lumen light and you have all the makings for a surprise party. RSVP is preferred.
