    Pogo2, nice looking S&W. I wish you could still get them new without the stinking hole in the side. Very nice looking gu you have there.

    Couple my most recent antique wheelguns.



    My SecuritySix



    My Smith



    All quite capable of EDC duty, and not really antiques.

    O, by the way, could we PULEEEEAAZE not refer to guns made in 60s and 70s or even 50s as "Antique". For one thing they're not, but more important:

    IT MEANS I'M AN ANTIQUE, I WAS ALIVE THEN AND AND KICKING THEN!

    S&W 19-4 blue steel is a great weapon, a great shooter that many HP used
    to carry in the parts in the pass.

    To the OP. If in fact it does say Security Six and has fixed sights. Call Ruger with the serial number. Spend a few bucks and get the history of the gun. You may have a gun that is worth some money to a Ruger collector.
    Security Six have great rep and are sought after. It will be shooting long after we've gone to that Range in the Sky. So will all the beauties in our photos. Rugers are great guns, tough, last forever and affordable!

    I have great respect for these older wheelies. Made to last by real gunmakers. Plastic is convenient and I'm not knocking Glocks and such. But to have a fine 70 yr old Swiss Watch is not the same as having a $10 digital one.

    My Colt Detective even has an old police agency ID stamped into the bottom of the hilt. A real detective 60 years ago had this on daily. Who knows his story - and what this gun has seen. Now I have it. When I go someone else will have it then. We don't "own" these guns, we "rent" them for our time here - and they continue on with our history added to all of that which was there when we first got them. I like that feeling when I hold a gun! - a sliver of the past...

    The only problem with Carrying a beautiful older wheelie is keeping down the impulse to pull it out in a crowd and yell:
    "Hey, Look Everybody!! Isn't it BEAUTIFUL !" [...scores of people flinging themselves to the ground as the sirens near]

    I do carry one of those, daily. My S&W model 15 has been my constant companion for many years now.

    I do carry those
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
