It would make an excellent choice for a house gun since recoil is almost non-existent.

The current wifeís gun, the 67-1, is also wearing CT laser grips. If the 67 goes those grips will be put into the 681.

Possibly. Donít really need 3 .357ís. Especially since I shoot .357 so rarely. I reload .38 so thatís pretty much all I shoot in a wheelgun.

I'm the oddball here I guess. I don't think twice about selling a gun. They're just guns, and there is always another one down the road somewhere, and the hunt is more than half the fun IMHO. Actually, I've had almost as much fun selling them as I have owning them. Met some great people too.

Which one should you sell? I got no idea. I'd sell the one I use the least, or have just decided I didn't want anymore.

I wouldn't sell your wife's gun without checking with her first.......

The only other thing about the rugers is IMHO, those are the only ones that looked good. I'd want to hold onto that one...... But I probably wouldn't want to get rid of the 28.

I'm a Smith man through and through, but I would keep the Ruger. The Six series were and are splendid, nearly indestructible revolvers. I've only owned one, a very worn Security Six; and though I can no longer shoot .357 Magnum, I wish I hadn't sold it.

I think Iíd sell some blood or something. Eat ramen noodles for lunch 6 days a week for a while. Get a part time job at Walmart. Sell a gun? I have sold a couple to buy more. Only one that I donít miss. I wonít sell any more unless Iím really bad off. Remember guns and ammo will be worth more than gold when the zombies come.

Several years ago I started selling off my guns and giving them to friends
and family members. I'm down to about a dozen now. Remembering
something Billy Graham said helped: "I never did see a hearse pulling
a U-Haul Trailer."

So sell all three of them. That will solve your dilemma. Like that old
Vaseline song "It only hurts for a little while".

LOL.

But yeah, you can't take them with you. I've had to sell guns. Money doesn't grow on trees and there's never enough.

Billy didn't get around much, as I recall. I didn't take this, but the location is North Glenstone near Interstate 44 in Springfield. I've stayed at that Drury Inn.

If you have to make a sale, sell the one thatís easiest to replace.
