You can feed that gun .357 mag ammo all your life & it'll still be shooting it long after you are gone.
I agree what you said but I'm talking more specifically not cleaning firearms at all. I have multiple friends that have very nice collections and NEVER clean them at all. I guess maybe I'm a little OCD but when I go shooting I come back and always within a few days give them the white glove treatment. I want to know that whether I shoot them again in 2 weeks or 2 years they are well preserved. Thanks for your input"My biggest pet peeve are people who have nice firearms and don't clean them."
That's a subjective topic.
Overcleaning can actually be just as bad as not cleaning.
ABUSE of a firearm is wrong.
Many folks who USE a firearm on a regular basis don't deep clean one. They wipe them down, make sure they are oiled (where necessary) and store properly.
I recently read a comment from a well known gun writer who said basically the same thing. He doesn't "clean" his guns as deeply as some,, and especially the bore of his shooters. Many top shooters agreed with him.
The Security-Six is a tank of a gun without the feel of a tank. Shoot it,, enjoy it, and pass it along someday.
I bought MY Security Six in 1976. The 2 3/4" barreled Stainless version, (serial #151-80xxx x) it was then, has been through the years, and no doubt will continue to be my all-time very favourite revolver!!! Hunting, maybe 20 years back a friend spied a Styrofoam cup stuck in a tree at about 40 yards range, and made quite the wager re my ability to hit it. A most foolish shot (on my behalf) as I gave no thought to what might be behind said target -- but I got double lucky in both hitting the cup as well as (phew!) nothing was down range. My "pill" of choice has always been using .357 cases as I do not wish to either make the .38 S&W Special "ring" from the shortened cases using my own cast semi-wadcutters propelled with a moderate .38 S&W Special HP38 loading; added is a small bit of Dacron in case.I just picked up a few weeks ago this beauty at a local gun shop that I've been dealing with for years. This gun is in excellent shape with a 155 serial number which dates it to around 1979, came with original box/papers as you can see. I'm still in the fondling period (most gun owners will know what I'm talking about) I haven't shot it yet but plan to this weekend! My question is; this gun seems like it's built very well, should I just run 38 special through and baby it or .357? I've read somewhere that you really shouldn't feed a lot of .357 through, over time isn't good for this.
Any thoughts comments would greatly be appreciated!
