My wife has asked me to teach her the rudiments of handgun shooting. Like a fool, I said “Yes.” After a couple of lessons, she graduated to .38 Spec wadcutters. During the course of our work she asked to try my carry gun, a Ruger Speed-Six. Second foolish move, I let her try it. Years ago, I had a former Coastie armorer put a “ carry” trigger on a Model 37 Smith and my Speed-Six. He did an excellent job. While the Ruger ain’t a Smith in the trigger department, IMHO, it does have a smooth, not light, trigger pull. My wife likes it a lot, and now she wants it! Well, love is one thing, but giving up my carry piece ain’t happening. So, I found a Speed-Six on gunbroker. By serial number, a little older, more “ experienced” than mine and with a better trigger than I usually see on Ruger revolvers. Some of us think Bill Ruger went overboard on the “ lawyer trigger” , etc. OTOH, the company still owns itself without too many blood suckers hanging on. I have a set of finger- groove stocks on order to approximate my custom stocks. We’ll see where this goes. I pray I’m out of the woods on this, “I want your piece,” stuff.
