    Thumbs up Found a Ruger SP101

    Well, I sold the S&W 637 with a CT laser...which was a great gun...barely 100 rounds through it. My wife just didn't want to carry it.

    So, I was in my favorite gun shop yesterday asking about getting a Ruger SP101. They ARE hard to find, but my friendly gun shop manager said he would keep looking for me.
    Today he called me and wanted to know if I was interested in a used SP101...fixed sights, and the 3" barrel. I asked him, "How used?", he said, "The guy just walked in with it. It was purchased here 5 months ago and was never fired." I said, "I like those kinds of used guns."

    I just walked in and took a pic, didn't even wipe the prints off yet.
    This thing is a tank, and here it is...

    The SP 101 is an excellent revolver. Congrats! It actually handles full magnums quite well, although for a non-experienced shooter, that recoil could be a bit stout, but, it's nice to know you can shoot anything from 38 wadcutters to full magnums.

    Too light for heavy work, too heavy for light work!

    I have owned 3 over the years. I will probably get another when the right one comes along.

    Congratulations! This has to be one of the best compact carry guns available, period.

    That's the one I wanted. I settled for the 2.25" bbl, but it has worked out fine. You're gonna love it!!! 38s are a dream to shoot, and 357s aren't bad for someone used to shooting. Let us know what you think when you get a chance to go to the range. And congrats!!!!

    Congrats on that 3" SP101. It is a perfect carry 357.

    Remember to try the rubber Hogue grips on it - full power 357 loads are much more pleasant that way.

    Good choice. You are correct. They are a tank but you cant beat an SP101 as far as durability.
    I've put at least 1000 rounds through mine and not even a slight malfunction. You made a good purchase.

    You won't regret your purchase. They are great guns.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Nice find. They are an exceptional weapon for EDC.

    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
