I once had a Ruger rep tell me that all
Ruger handguns were proof tested with a
mixture of loads that run 30% above normal
before they leave the factory!

thats what the factory is telling us at the gun shop and if you look in some loading manuales they have a seperate section for ruger cause they can handle the heavy stuff.

It would be smart business to recommend only a certain pressure range, ie. standard pressures for most factory loaded ammo. Then, build in a burst or safety factor. It's done in the fitting & hose industry alot. It's a safety factor for the occasional ooops. Typically you wouldn't want the burst factor to be used as part of the pressure specifications.

The load data for Rugers ie. in .45 Colt in my speer manual would be good to go. But I wouldn't push past the recommended load data.

Iv'e been real happy with mine:
10/22
.22 pistol
Blackhawk convertable
P90

Some people here have not had good luck, or had a bad experience. that's too bad. Bad rap for an American gun maker.

SP's are nice, I like the little 9mm.

An autoloader scattergun would be cool. In due time I'm sure. Thier marketing does a good job of pacing themselves. Or, the market just may not be there. A lot of 'em are players in the market.

we have sold several old security sixes in the last six months all satinless most in 4" two in 6" one i have. all of them went for $225 - $250. not too bad on price.
the sp is a heack of a gun and with the new shoulder holsters now offered by ruger it sure looks like a sweet lil carry gun.

joe thats what i do all the time, if offered more than i paid for one i sell it thats what we do at teh gun shop, you just have to replace the inventory, he he he he he he.
i drive the pistol permit clerk nuts ( NY has to register each and every handgun seperatly on our permits and have them taken off when sold and prove they went to a dealer or another permit holder.) she hates seeing me come in i think i have like six or seven adendums to my permit allreday and i'm like one line away from my next one. and we just got in a sweet super redhawk 44 ss in, might have to come back home with me it looks lonely at the shop.

I owned two security- sixes at one time, one blue
and one stainless both with 4" tubes. At the time,
S&W 19's were hard to get for some reason; but
the Ruger SS proved too be a rewarding experience.
$225-250 isn't a bad price for these fine weapons.

Also, I owned a Ruger 77-R in .338 Winchester
Magnum; with the inscription "made in the 200th
year of American Liberty" on the barrel. But, it
was way too much gun for anything here
in central Dixieland; so I traded it for a then NIB
factory nickel 5" barrel Smith & Wesson
model 27. Oh! I ought have my BUTT kicked for
getting rid of that S&W!:nod:

Yes...actualy my "Book Of Modern Gun Values" say that it makes them "considerably more valuable." But it does not give a $$number.
