another one for the Six series
My dad recently inherited a fairly large sum of money and he wanted to put some towards starting his own gun collection (we alwways just shot my grandpas guns). one gun on his list was a 357 mag revolver. first he was looking at taurus' because of price, but then in a little pawn shop tucked away in the corner of a strip mall, we found a 1982 Ruger police service six in mint condition. got it for 400 OTD with a really nice holster and a case thrown into the deal.
we put about 100 rounds (mix of .38 special and .357 mag) thru it without a hiccup. super accurate and easy to shoot. only complaint was the skinny factory grips. replaced them with a set of ruger target pieces and now its just about perfect.
