To my knowledge, the OSP never carried the Ruger Security Six. Ruger may have made a commemorative but I am sort of picky in my belief that if you are going to make a commemorative, it should have a true relationship with the person, organization or event that it commemorates. That's to say for instance a John Wayne Mdl 94 or Colt peacemaker, or even an M16 would be OK but a John Wayne 10-22 or M9 would just be crass commercialism.
The OPS commemorative to have would be I believe the S&W Mdl. 19 that was issued in the late 70s. I don't remember what anniversary it honored but they made one for each OSP officer and the SN was their badge #. The officer was given first chance to buy each gun. I saw one soon after they were issued, in a trophy case, at the OSP academy in Columbus.
