I'm visiting with my dad and we were talking guns(nothing unusual there), when he told me he wants to sell his old security six. It's in really nice shape, maybe 15- 20 yrs old. My dad wants to upgrade to a S&W scandium .357 Thanks--VT

I bought one (4" barrel) a couple of months ago at my local gun shop for $140.

Perfect working condition, needed a blue job - just a nice old gun.

It's at the shop now getting re-blued - about $80 - torn completely, down old bluing removed, ... - professionally re-finished.

Great gun, I carry it hiking, etc...

Pretty accurate, light, ....

Wanted a good/reliable wheel-gun without spending a fortune and found it.

The Ruger Security-Six/Police-Six are spoken highly of on the revolver forums. I think they made them from 1968 to 1988 - were replaced by the GP100 (or something like that).

Buy your dad the S&W and then hope he gives you the Ruger for free.

I found one for $150 last year. It is a blued 2 3/4 inch barrel.

Only problem is that it is a pre 151 serial number and nobody makes grips for it.

OT: A bit of warning warning advise your dad to becareful of those super-light weight guns, they are meant to be carry guns and they kick worse than a mule, even with downloaded practice ammo. I have an out of production S&W 342PD Centennial, I have to shoot download WC ammo.
