    I agree with all that has been said in favor of the SP101. Marvelous pistol; built to last.

    A SP101 Is a EXCELLENT weapon, yes I own one, but it it is a bit heavy, 25 ounces, for carry. For pocket I prefer my 15 ounce S&W 638.

    I am s semi pro part time holster maker myself, so I don't but finished leather. That rig is nice, I really like the ammo pouch.

Just a thought... great choice though on both accounts.
    That thought had crossed my mind, now I have to see if I can make my wife believe I need another gun!

    Well, I carry a full sized 1911, so it is not an issue to me. My wife likes the heft of the thing, rightly thinking it will make it more fun to shoot.

    I hope this is proper etiquette to mention but I have a 3" in the classified.

    If I get another revolver an SP101 will get a long, hard look. I really like them and I'm sure you'll be happy with yours.

    I have one for daily carry spur-less 2 1/4 noticed with .38's it shoots about an inch low, but with .357 it's right on the money. I am very happy with it.

    I own 3: the standard 2&1/4, a 3 and a 2&1/4 with factory bobbed hammer. That last one I carry in my pocket in a nice Mika holster. My ammunition of choice for them all is the Remington 357 Golden Saber. A nice medium-powered load.
