    Hand in a cast: another SP101 benefit

    Short story: crashed my bike on a gravel road, up a mountain. No firearms were hurt in the making of this mishap. But I did break a bone in my wrist and ended up in a cast.




    Essentially, I'm now a one handed CWP holder. While I can reload a Glock 26 in my current condition, it is far easier to load and shoot the SP101. Pretty simple, really. Even with a speed loader.

    Just another reason to have a revolver in your arsenal.

    It is hard to argue against the SP101.

    Hope you get back to normal soon.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    With a hand in a cast a new York reload would be my option.

    Glad the outcome was as good as it was. Those wheel chairs are tough on a guy.

    It looks like they molded that cast perfectly. Were you holding a blue gun?
    Get well soon.

    That sucks about your wrist. I've found it easier to reload a Glock than a revolver one handed. Can you post a vid or explain in detail how you do each? - or maybe after your wrist heals.

    Thanks.

    If I didn't have three SP 101's already I might put my hand in a cast as an excuse to buy one.

    You need another SP101 for a New York reload. You have our permission. Hope it heals up soon.

    Hope your hand heals well soon! High tech is not always better! Just think your SP-101 is EMP proof! LOL!

    Hooah!

    Sorry to hear your son needs surgery. I'm hoping to avoid that. Much appreciation to your son for his service. Thank you for raising an American!

    Agreed.....it's one of those designs that has stood the test of time. I've been seeing more post about them here as of late, which I think is a good indicator of its demand in the market even today. Hope that wrist heals up quick OP!
