the only ruger handgun iv ever technicaly owned n also i still own is my ruger security six (.357 mag) and i love it so much even tho its a snub nose ear ringer its still pretty accurate n real fun to shoot
I've got a four-inch barrel Security Six. I love it as well. Great gun, not bad on the price and the grip fits my hand about as perfectly as a custom job. As someone else said, it is more accurate than I can shoot. Who can ask for more?
Another happy camper with the security six model,I have the blued 4in. barreled flavor,excellent shooter.I may have paid a couple bucks over the top,but it is in near mint condition,looked like it was never shot or carried.Of course you know I had to go out and shoot the snot out of it.Thing is built like a tank.Accurate too with its adjustable sights.
I just recently passed on a Security Six with a 2" barrel for $250. I wanted it but opted for a PPK instead. I have enough .357's for now but having handled one I can appreciate the quality and strength of the gun.
Security Six is a TOUGH-TO-FIND item around these parts (central Va). I do not remember ever seeing one advertised for sale. As you may have guessed, I want one bad, but no luck!
My GP100 will have to keep me warm for the forseeable future, I suppose.

I bought my blued six inch new in 1982 for $232.00 after a tax refund check came in. Hadn't fired it in over 15 years until 3 weeks ago. It's a wonderful firearm. Very accurate with the right loads. I replaced the stock grips with a set of Mustang neoprene grips in 1983. Grips still look great. I put a lighter hammer spring in it about the same time to make the trigger a little crisper.
I just got back my 4" stainless security six after a seven yr separation. I fired six shots (Federal Premium 130 gr.) yesterday & was quite pleased with the grouping. A particularly well balanced gun in all areas. This would be my pistol of choice in any survival situation.
I'll give another 5/5 rating for the Security Sixs. I've got a .357 mag Stainless with a 4" barrel. It was made in '80 and had 10 rounds put through it that year. Then the guy stored it til a year ago when he sold it to me for 200 dollars. Absolute steal seeing as the gun was mint... literally. I couldn't believe the price. He just didn't want it anymore. Anyway, I've put a good 210+ rounds through it within the past three months and the gun is just amazing. I think someone already said this but I'll repeat it... these guns are built like tanks. The wooden factory grips are extraordinary as well. The only reason I would buy rubber grips would be to save the wooden ones from getting damaged. their feel is just unmatched...
