Old stuff! (NO – not the 70’s TV series!) 😛
Both long out-of production and both ‘classics’ in their own right.
And both are fine to carry and shoot just as they are, but…
Like most gun folks, I cannot leave well enough alone!
Regarding the Ruger Security Six, she has the standard stocks. When I was previously gun poor and carried her as a loaner (thanks again Dave the
genius mechanic!) she was resplendent with a pair of Herrett Shooting Star checkered stocks. Reportedly, these cracked beyond repair and have been discarded.
And Herrett no longer makes them for the original old frame.
Does anyone know where an old set might be acquired, or failing that, a similar style manufactured by some other manufacturer?
(Being an old-school gun guy just doesn’t get any easier?)
Now to the Sig Sauer P245. Again no longer in production. And the long-used night sites have faded to the brightness of the spark generated by breaking a Wint-O-Green Life Saver or white Necco Wafer in a dark closet. Fortunately, when I can afford it, replacements ARE available. (Although she does shoot quite well without any tritium, regardless!)
The ‘problem’ here is a decent IWB concealment holster. Just like the Ruger, as they are no longer in production, finding accountrement for her is difficult.
AND, of course, I’m left-handed!
I like the idea of something straight-drop in Kydex, but at this point anything above a Fruit-Of-The-Loom, metal clip-on chamois pouch would suffice.
Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?
