    Ruger Speed Six Question

    Hi Guys
    I have the chance to pick up a 2 3/4 inch Ruger Speed Six in stainless for around 150.00. The gun is VERY tight, with little to no blemishes on it. The BBl is clean and grips are standard Ruger grips, with fixed sights as well. I'm thinking this would make a really good last ditch gun, or offhand carry gun. It's in 357 mag as well.
    I'd like some input from the Forum on it. The last Ruger (a security six in 4 inch blue as my first handgun purchase back in 1974) worked really well.

    BUY. IT. Sheesh, $150? I'd have bought it whether I needed it or not, sold it for $225-$250 to someone else...

    If you get it, I'll pay you $160 for it!

    I really like the Speed Six....I'd love to get one in 9mm but those are pretty rare.

    They are supposed to be very heavy duty and well made guns....like practically all of the Ruger revolvers.

    Congrats on the buy and enjoy!

    I own one, I carry it every day, I LOVE IT!!!

    Mine was used by somebody for some pretty heavy carry at some point, lots of holster wear and I get the impression it was fired pretty regularly. It is still completely tight... no cylinder movement at all when it's locked up. The trigger is incredibly smooth... as smooth as any S&W I've owned in the past.

    Buy it, sell every other CCW you own you won't need anything else (in my not-so-humble opinion) :) Did I mention that I love the Speed-Six?

    Bob - how dare you even ask such a question!!!

    GET IT - quick! Man is that an OK deal by sound of it - snap it up fast. If I was faced with that option and was flat broke - I'd find the cash somehow.

    Hope you do get it dude and then give us some impressions.

    LOL.... We've had the gun on 7-day hold several times. (The stainless speed six) Heck, I even went out back and found the box for it, WITH the manual and paperwork.
    I broke down and placed it on hold, put a hundred down on it, and guess what comes in at the end of the day.. a 2 1/4 inch SP101 in 357... NOW.. I'm really in a pickle, cuz i like both of em. I know they took the SP in for about 250.00 in trade.. BUT that Speed Six is Soooo cheap.. I was fooling with it before the store opened, and as a couple of guys came up to the sales floor, they were asking if it was in inventory. I told em "nope, it's waiting to be transferred" i duno though,, that SP looks good too. Guess I gotta think about this.. decisions, decisions

    I'll probably take the Speed Six, as it's really cheap money. I just remember my Flat top 4 inch security six I bought for 89.00 waayyyy back when.
    I know I'm going off the Thread a wee bit here, but it seems that I keep going back to the older stuff for some reason. Do any of you find yourselves doing this? I find myself looking for similar guns and related items I bought/sold long ago. Is it old age? or just re-accurring childhood? Or what might it be? LOL Let's see who's doing this besides myself. I think it might be good food for thought on what we seem to look for, that we may have owned in the Past, and how it might help our new Forumites to get a better picture of the more senior members here
