Excellent piece. It will last several life times. I firmly believe that a .357 magnum double action revolver should be part of everyone's TEOTWAWKI collection.

I am envious. That's a classic, right there.

Took me awhile to find a 3 inch. Bud's re-stocked and I grabbed one. Unlike other stories my transaction was smooth. Time between order and in my hand was 8 days.

It's a nice gun from the factory. With the new spring it's a great gun.

I've wanted a 3" like that ever since Longtooth showed me his.....and his has tritium sights, front and rear......a lovely gun. He said his wasn't for sale. :cryin :mrgreen:

But they are hard to find in a 3" barrel.

I hear tell of a newly released 3" GP in .44 Special (five shot). Just to keep it a complicated choice.

Your Speed-Six is a Ruger. It is probably telling some other revolvers, "I need to replace my old human some day."
