    Carrying that GP100!




    winter is coming soon, which makes it easier to carry this lug a bit more. Do any of you carry a GP100 ever? If so what is a good holster for it? My apologies if this belongs in a different discussion.. thank you

    Ahh... that's a fine piece of machinery right there. Can't help you with holster advice, though.

    I like the old style grips too. I use the ones on my 4" GP that were stock on the 3" fixed sight version. I don't CC my GP100 but I do take it with me in the back country wilderness areas. The holster I like for this purpose is the Bianchi Cyclone. Here's a thumbnail of my 4" GP100.

    Safariland "Batwing", but I think they quit making them. You might be able to find one somewhere. Ajax grip inserts.

    I wore my GP100 around the house and property off and on for a couple winters. It's a big heavy gun that can be carried pretty easy with a good holster and belt.

    Careful on the holster you pick for yours. The OWB I have pushed down on the rear sight, making it misadjust easily. I cut a notch out of the edge of the holster and its OK now.

    Recently I have been carrying an SP101 in a Simply Rugged Pancake OWB. I like the pancake style holster very much and may end up getting one for the GP.

    I have not toted my GP100...yet. I have a Simply Rugged on order though. Thought I would share some pics of the Lett style grips.

    Man, like those grips! I've got a set of rosewood grips for the wife's SP101 and Mark III from www.altamontco.com. They have most in stock and mail out same or next day shipping.

    I use a Don Hume for the SP101 and a Triple-K for my Kel-Tec. Both are IWB, and I believe both are available for the GP100. The SP101 is heavier than some, but carries well. The GP100 should too.
    Yeah, My old CCW 9 MM is nicknamed "Barkey"
    New CCW LCP is "Elsie"
    and my 12 Ga S x S Coach gun is "Boomer"
    Wife's weapon is "Miss Pearl" (SP101 .357 w/mother of pearl inserts)
    We're old so we can get away with that.

    Nice wheelgun which happens to be my preferred platform these days’. As for holsters, the sky is the limit, and too subjective for me to recommend.

    OMO, but I like revolvers dressed in Simply Rugged gear

    I have mostly toted a 4" GP100 in either a PD-issued Safariland duty holster, or a Safepacker from www.thewilderness.com . On the occasions I have elected to carry a GP100 truly concealed under clothing, I have used a now-discontinued IWB rig made by Eagle Industries, or a now-discontinued shoulder rig made by Weapons Systems, so I can't be of much help with concealed carry, except to say "amen" to the recommendation of the Sparks Summer Special II, a rig I have for other large sixguns, and also mention that I use the Sparks 200AW and PMK for the slightly smaller K-frame-sized sixguns.

    Danimal let us know how you like your Simply Rugged for the GP100.

    +1 zacii the set up I have for my SP101 is the most comfortable of all my carry rigs.
