    I guess I am the latest member. My wife and I bought each other early christmas presents I got a sp101 3 inch and she got a LCR with night site on front. I like both guns but the sp101 is now my every day carry. added a houge grip to it. My hands were too big for factory grip.

    Have had one, the 3" .357 for a few years, & really the only time I ever carry it is deer season (its s legel cal. for deer here in Kansas) not hunting deer with it but if I carried a 9mm or .45 acp while hunting deer I supose it could get me a fine from the Dept. of Wildlife & Parks for a Illegal caliber.
    Don't know how the courts would rule...don't wanna find out.

    But the little SP101 is a great outdoorsmans gun, fairly small, enough power for most of my outdoor needs & of course built like a tank AND made of stainless steel.

    Just for me seems kinda bulky for city carry for no more rounds than it carries. But i did enjoy toteing the little smoke wagon around during the deer hunt.
    Maybe I'll carry it a bit more in town now. It is a sweet little thing.

    I carry my SP101 2.25" daily. I love this gun!
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    The SP101 Club

    Just got back from the range with mine. I shoot this gun twice as well as my Glock, and it has taken over carry duty. It's easy an fun to reload for, and handles .357 really well. I love it and the caliber. I'm considering selling or trading my 9mm for another .357, maybe a GP100 or similar. This gun has sold me on the DA revolver big time.

    I've got the spurless one. It was my first gun and it's still the one we OC when we jog out in the desert. Congrats and welcome to the club!

    This is my first revolver. On my "Wish List" of guns, this is a close first, the S&W Model 60 being the other.

    Can't wait to run it this weekend!!

    Ran my 3" for the first time yesterday.. Like a dream. I even bought a cheap uncle mikes iwb to try and carry it, felt very comfortable. The .357 loads handled just as we'll as the .38sp loads I put in. This gun so far has really lived up to what every one has said on here.

    That the holster I use to carry AIWB, but mine is 2.25". Very comfortable for me but I am looking for a nice OWB holster. Glad you like it, small revolvers and Sigs are my favorite guns, nothing fits my hands better!
