    Yes I would probably feel better carrying those than a new one.

    Those may be older, but hardly antiques. They were made at the height of revolver perfection. If I didn't fear getting a hernia, I'd gladly carry one.

    Those aren't antiques and yes I would feel fine carrying any of those revolvers. I have a 4" Ruger Police Service Six that I put into use as a truck gun everyday.

    Both of those are workhorse wheel guns and if I was looking for a wheel gun to carry I would shop for an older one over a newer one.

    I've got 2 of the Ruger Six Series guns. Both 2 3/4" one is a Speed Six and the other is a Security Six. No problem carrying either one.

    The Ruger Six Series is far from being considered antiques. They were manufactured from 1972-1988 and chambered in 3 calibers (9mm, 38 Special and .357 Mag.). My oldest son is older than the oldest Ruger Six Series gun, and he's far from an antique!

    I own a stainless security-six 357 4 inch bought in 1983.I'd carry it anyday.Cross draw works for me. I also have an older one charter house in 44 spl it weighs 21 oz unloaded.
    This is a sweet shooter as it has pachmyer grips.it throws a 315 grain hollow point 815 fps and it hits hard. Those are my older revolvers.Last year I purchased s+w bodyguard
    in 38spl. My wishlist is s+w model 29 Dirty Harry's 44 magunum.

    Absolutely! And since bmcgilvray is away on travel, I'll add a proxy vote for him as well.

    Looks like a Ruger Security Six and a S&W Model 19? Or is the S&W an N-frame? The designs may not be new, but those are very rugged and reliable guns which fire a proven round, the .357 magnum.
