DEFENSIVE SHOOTING CHALLENGE — S&W MODEL 64 VS RUGER SERVICE SIX

mr.revolverguy | April 28th, 2019

GET OUT AND PRACTICE

Charlie and James remind us we need to get out and challenge ourselves to remain proficient in defensive encounters.

DAY3 S&W MODEL 64 VS RUGER SERVICE SIX

Yet again another day on the range with snub nose revolvers trying out the defensive shoot challenge. The S&W model 64 has reigned supreme; let’s see if the Ruger Service Six can dethrone the king.

RESULTS:

Ruger Service Six — Time = 1.54sec — Time Try 2 = 2.08sec Avg=1.78

S&W Model 64 — Time = 2.03sec — Time Try 2 = 2.02sec Avg=2.025

I ended up short stroking the trigger on the release during both tries with the S&W model 64. Unfortunately it looks like the old king has been dethroned. What do you think range fans, should there be another challenge with the Ruger or do I move on with the Ruger as the king?

Let me know what you think in the comments.

I think the large grip gives you more control…look at the size of them paws you got. Nice work.

I’d say too close to call. But then I’m a fan of both revolvers ?

this world needs more 6 shot 357 magnum Concealed Carry revolvers. do you feel like you loose a lot of usefulness going from a Ruger Six series snub to a Kimber K6S? would you rather a K6S or a Chiappa Rhino?

Also, anyone else using a clip-draw on a mid frame revolver? I love mine, but every few months I have to replace the 3M tape because it peels off. Not sure if it’s the cleaning solution (I don’t clean that often so I don’t think it’s this unless something is still hanging out after all this time), the Cerakote, or the heat/Cold thermal cycling from getting left in my truck at work. I suppose it could just be that my gun is too heavy for the clip-draw physically and it gets worked too much over time… what are ya’ll’s experiences?
