    I confess though to having developed a grudging admiration for the Security Six, Service Six, and Speed Six revolvers, just in the past couple of years. I occasionally think about adding one to the revolver menagerie. I know how I'll do it though. I'll wait until the are really expensive before getting one, when I should have picked one up while they at least could be considered reasonable.
    That is where I am at with a Python.
    I wish I were in your shoes and it was Ruger instead.

    Being quite the Ruger fan, I had figured it would be years before I could acquire a Security/Service/Speed Six (let alone the exact model I want) and it would most likely be at a hefty price. Snatched that one up at a LGS that got it at an estate sale. Original everything. Box, papers and even the plastic dust cover coated in Ruger emblems. Not the very exact model I dreamed of (Service Six, stainless w/ 4" bbl) but damn close. I'm not one for impulse purchases but if there ever was one I knew I'd never regret, it'd be this.

    I know your feeling a bit. I'm not overly fond of S&W. Truth be told the only gun between my father and I with those two letters stamped into it is my Shield. I do enjoy the looks of a blued Model 10-5 though. As a matter of fact, there was one in the display case when I picked up my Six that was from the same estate sale. But my bank account could only take one hit and between the two, the Security Six had to be mine.

    A collection of clones is quite nice (and useful) the way you display them, PAcanis.

    Should'a, could'a, would'a gotten one of those Smith & Wesson Schofield replicas when they weren't two arms and a leg. Love the lines of that revolver, the most attractive revolver ever produced by any company in my view.

    OOoo!! Love the checkered stocks on the .38 Special SAAs too, which are reminiscent of some early checkered walnut Colt designs for the Single Action Army.

    I'm a Ruger revolver guy - have been for a long time. Not many pics but this SP101 is my favorite of the bunch.

    Nice!

    I found this 1962-vintage M10-5 at a gun show a couple of years ago:

    I may have just seen one of those Model 10 snubs on GA earlier this afternoon...
    I know the price was up there, but it was cherry.

    I got mine for $350.00 a couple years ago, just the gun alone. I got a really good deal on it from my LGS.

    I got the same deal on a 36 a few years ago. It was a good morning.

    That's the same as mine - with the pencil barrel. I LOVE THAT GUN. I shoot mine, though, so it's not in that perfect of condition.
    Getting old was not on my list of "things to do" in the Golden Years!

    Hey, I shoot mine, too! Granted, not a whole lot, and I baby it.

    I don't carry it, though.
