    Decided against it.... apparently "LIKE NEW" and "TIED TO THE BUMPER AND DRAGGED BEHIND THE CAR FOR A FEW BLOCKS BEFORE USING IT TO PISTOL WHIP A CHAIN LINK FENCE" mean the same thing to this seller. Starting over.

    picked mine up today. My first handgun purchase! It's really a beautiful gun - has the wood inlays on the grip. I'll post pictures tomorrow hopefully


    also -- what is the significance of the sealed envelope containing a single casing with the primer painted red? It looks like there was a signature on the envelope, so maybe that was an inspector? anyone who knows I'd appreciate the help

    I like these holsters and need one for my Sp 3" let us know when you get set up in Colorado..I like a 15 degree cant, also with straps for IWB/OWB. What is the normal delivery time?
    I've found that a holster for the SP101 357 3" is very hard to find. Your's look very nice!!

    I can't even begin to tell you how much I have thought of this. The SP101 is a tank in .357 and it could do amazing things in .44 Special. Instead we get stuck with Taurus and Charter Arms as our only current options.

    Finally! I found a good, clean used SP101 2.25" .357mag and my LGS and put it on layaway today. I should be picking it up in a few weeks. I'm very excited to say the least. I took a pic but it came out pretty crappy so I'll post a better one when I get it.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    The SP101 was my second pistol of purchase, and I'm not going to give it up anytime soon. My armorer wanted to give me a price to take it off my hands, but I politely declined: it's not on the market.

    Tried the small of the back leather Galco holster, but found it to be cumbersone, and heavy. Not my first choice for CCW, but definately a great choice for home defense. Built like a tank, and indestructible.

    I love mine. Houge grip and IWB garret industries Silent thunder and silver dollar pancake hosters to fit. I didnt care for .357 mag rounds with the original grips but with the houge monogrip, it really changed the handling and recoil. I carry it 50% of the time. Other times it is a 1911.

    I have been wanting one for a long while. Put one in layaway last week at the LGS. A customer had purchased it for carry, decided it was too bulky, so returned it unfired to trade in on a bi-tone XDs. I didn't hesitate; a nearly new SP101 for a used price.

    Been a member of this club for about 10 years. It was my first gun. Now, it has Houge grips. I just love the BOOM of a full load magnum.

    The SP101 is the anvil tough member of the j-frame sized snubbie world. Nobody, but NOBODY breaks or wears-out an SP101!

    No doubt the SP101 is tough enough to handle the .44 Special, but the question is; is the cylinder large enough to accommodate five .44 inch holes? I'm betting that's the limiting factor.

    Is it really remotely comfortable to carry IWB? I've held one and it feels like it would just be too bulky on my right hip, left hip or my back.

    Mine rides AIWB, in a Mr. Softy by High Noon holsters. I hardly notice that it's there.

    Great gun, but I found it to be a bit bulky and cumbersome....tried a small of the back Galco carry and did not like it. Still, it's a great piece, and my local gun store gave me an offer that I could not refuse for mine....unfortunately for him, I did refuse.

    Still, a great home defense weapon.

    Yes, I bought mine not too long ago and carry it in the same holsters as my LCR and its as comfortable. Keep in mind the SP101 is slightly thicker than a LCR so some holsters are no a percect fit but darn close.
