    Sorry for the late response. Yes, it's the 2-1/4. Now I want a 3". =)

    I think I'm an oddity in that I don't really like my sp101. I bought a 3 inch model last year that I just can't get into it. I'm not sure if the trigger is sub-optimal, or its just the normal ruger trigger, but I find that I'm continually, mildly disappointed in the gun. I have noticed that when the cylinder rotates, it seems that it rotates inconsistently. I don't know if its a timing issue or what. By that I mean that with every other revolver i have, you get the same cylinder turn with each pull. With my ruger, sometimes the cylinder cycles fast and is waiting for the hammer to drop. Other times its crawling along and all of a sudden speeds thru to "make it" in time. It never fails me, but just bothers me. My 4 inch 22lr sp101 doesn't do this. And all of my trade in S&W's have much better triggers. Eh...

    I was really close to trading it in, but I don't really need to trade it in, and I figure I might as well keep it. I'll probably get it checked out sometime.

    Looking at a barely used one right now. Asking price is $450. What's a good offer? Thanks. I want to join the club.

    Going to pick it up this afternoon...

    I spoke with the seller on the SP101. He has fired 50 rounds of .357 and 25 rounds of .38 special through it. He got it in January of this year. Needs the money, so he says. It sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. Has the box and paperwork and everything. I guess the Ruger warranty only applies to the original purchaser, but I can't verify that for sure. We agreed on $400 for it. That sounds like a decent price if it's "like new" as he claims. I'll check it out this afternoon and if I bring it home, I'll post some photos. There's an indoor range close by where we're meeting, so I may take it there and see how it shoots first. I'm excited to see it. Also, I've heard the triggers are a bit stiff on them at first. Does it hurt to dry fire a revolver to loosen the trigger up?

    More later. Hopefully.

    It won't hurt to dry fire it.

    My SP101 was more than $500 new, so I think $400 is fair price for barely used.

    Welcome to the club, I carry mine every day 357 3" barrel. My Glock 19 is mainly a house and range gun now.

    I'm a very happy member of the .357mag SP101 club. I bought mine about two years ago as my first carry weapon, but found it a hard to conceal in shorts and a t-shirt, so this summer I purchased an LCP. While the LCP is great to carry, I don't feel as good about it as having a .357 along. Seeing some of the holster options here, I might be able to make it work for summer carry. Here is a picture of my Ruger collection.

    I wish you 101 lovers would join me in writing in to Ruger and letting them know they are missing the boat by not offering this model in 44 special.
