    I've owned a Ruger Security Six and would trust my life with it. I couldn't say the same about the Taurus.

    Personally no, I'm not fond of the beretta style. Monetary wise it's about equal.

    Ruger seems like a no brainer to me, maybe I'm missing something. Then again some people just flat out dont care for revolvers, personally I love them, especially quality like ruger, anaconda, S&W.

    Personally I wouldn't get rid of a nice looking Security Six like that (I have two).

    I have a Taurus PT99 AFS. I like the gun but like I said I wouldn't trade off the Ruger.

    That is about a pre-93ish non-decocker model. That was when they were made right with all steel parts. the ones nowadays have plastic sights and plastic recoil rods. I know those are standard on a lot of guns, but that wasn't the way back then. The sure fire way is that gun does not have a decocker and that is when Taurus stamped the lettering in the slide. I owned a PT-92 exactly like that one and a friend still has his with the decocker. Three officers personally carried that model ages ago with the Sheriffs Office I worked for and they were very durable. While the Security Six is an awesome revolver, you have decide if you want a semi-auto or revolver. Six versus sixteen. It would be nice if you could buy it and keep the Ruger. If I was hard pressed to choose, I would go with the Taurus as I have owned one before as I have owned the Ruger as well. The only thing that would keep me from trading if the Six was stainless. I am a sucker of stainless revolvers.
    Hope that helps.
    PS... The only thing I did not like was that you have to lower the hammer by hand. This applies also to 1911s, Tokarevs, CZ-75s, early Berettas, and single action revolvers. IF you are not comfortable doing that or carrying it cocked and locked, then stick with the Ruger.

    :agree:

    The Ruger is a solid hunk of steel that will last forever.
    The Taurus is a solid hunk of something else.

    I would never trade any Ruger for any Taurus. Yes, I have owned Taurus in the past, I just like Rugers much better.

    You just don't see many ruger security 6's like that in gun stores. Taurus handguns you do. Hmmm , wonder why? Don't trade it noob.

    Looks like 10-1 against so far. If our opinions mean anything to you it is a resounding NO!

    I've owned 3 Taurus LBR, .357, .44 and .22LR the only one I kept is the .22. I recently bought a Ruger Redhawk LBR in .357.

    If I had found the Ruger first I would never have bought the Taurus - well maybe the .22 as they are the only .22 in the UK market apart from BRNO Alfa Proj.

    Quality wise in car terms, the Taurus is a Ford, the Ruger a Mercedes.

    The Alfa proj is a 1970's Fiat.

    True^^^^ if anything... just sell it outright to somebody who's looking for one. Then buy whatever you want.

    If you already own a hi-cap 9mm, why would you trade the Ruger?
