    I made a trade

    Today I traded a NIB Henry Pump 22 Magnum for a Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum 2" bbl DA/SA. I've had my eye on several models and after having trouble with the Henry, they sent me a new one. I took the unopened box to my local shop where I bought it and made the trade. There were several other things in the shop that caught my eye, but this is what I chose. It also fit the IWB and OWB holsters I already had and I've got a bunch of .38 and .357 range and SD rounds. I did pick up some Speer Gold Dot .357 Mag while I was there. It's a great feeling gun...can't wait to shoot it. Pics below:

    Cool deal BugDude. I have the 3" version of this gun. Mine came with a real tough 14# spring in it. I put in a 10# spring and changed the grips to a Hogue monogrip. Much better now. Trigger still not as light feeling as the LCR or even my GP100. I wish I could get an 8# trigger for it. I know I can get a 9#. Might do that sometime.

    Congrats on the new gun. Got to love them Rugers!

    I wanted the 3" version, but I had to choose from what was in the shop. He had a 3", but it was a .327. The 2" carries fine. I'm anxious to check out the DA and SA trigger pull. I'll let you know how it goes.
