    Hi Grandpa Skip and welcome to the Forum!

    If the AMT Back Up will function reliably it could make a decent gun to carry as a back up, just as its model name would suggest. I knew a fellow who had one of these and it was a little picky as to what it would feed. It was a little unpleasant to fire as it had sharp edges.

    Same fellow had a 4-inch Ruger Security Six which I also fired on many occasions. The Speed Six is the fixed sight version of the Ruger DA .357/38 revolver of the 70s and 80s which was succeeded by the SP 101. There's nothing wrong with a Speed Six which is a sturdy revolver in a nice general purpose size. I like fixed sight revolvers for their simplicity. Most quality modern fixed sight revolvers will shoot on or near point of aim with a variety of ammunition.

    Can't help with the AMT, other than to say check it out, see if it works reliably. If it does you have a decent BUG. If not, it is a memento of a departed friend.
    As for the Ruger, depending on the condition of it, probably worth around $350.00. I have a 2.75" Bull Barrel Speed Six, that I bought back in I think 86. Well built, accurate, but heavy for a CC gun. If yours has the stand barrel on it, it should make a good carry gun with the right holster, or an excellent night stand gun for HD.

    AMT

    My extractor broke after 300 rounds. Keeping it for the Obama turn in program.

    Here is a link to another DefensiveCarry thread that we had running fairly recently on the AMT. There is some good information to be found there.

    I've had a couple of the .380 Back Ups and they all fucntioned just fine with most ammo. Well made and stainless steel, just a little heavy for their size.

    The Ruger Speed Six is also a well made and reliable revolver. You ended up with two nice pieces. Congrats!
