Great writeup. I love my wheelgun and arrived there pretty much in the same way.
Hey Rollo I have nearly the same gun you have minus the front sight. I love my Badger boot grips and carry mine in a smartcarry holster everday.
I was considering looking at some IWB holsters though. I've read alot on the internet about them but have never tried one personally. It just seems like trying to squeeze something like a pistol between my waistband and body would be terribly uncomfortable, and I'm not too heavy set of a guy, 190/5'11".
I've read that the crossbreed are extremely comfortable to some, can you attest to that?
I would LOVE to see some pics with you wearing the holster with SP101 intact. You may just sell me on one of those.
I'd also like to see a close up of your front sight as well if you have a chance.
Lovin this Ruger!!!
Chiel1297: This may be too late for you to read, but why am I the only (?) one who thinks my SP101 in .327 mag. is a great cartridge? The Ruger hold SIX rounds and I find the 32 H&R mag. a really good round. Any comments, SP101 lovers?
Chicken Little? Who the heck is Chicken Little? And what does she know, anyway?!

The SP-101 fills the small gap between the J and K frame. Great guns, just a bit big for pocket carry.
Great stuff Rolo,
I carry a Ruger SP snubbie too!
I carry speed strips... not nearly as fast as speedloaders.. but I actually carry them! (after a fair amount of practice.. I can reload 4 rounds fairly rapidly)
I use two holsters. AKJ Concealco IWB and Crossbreed Qwikclip. Both have their advantages and disadvantages...
The shape of the snub makes it work for me. It conceals just behind my hip, and with Badger boots on it, the grip is short enough to conceal nicely.
The badger grips do sting a bit, when firing .357 mag, but for defensive purposes, they are fine.
I tried some different brands and various grains of ammo, before deciding on: Buffalo Bore .38+p 158 gr LSWCHP GC. These rounds are over 1000fps out of a snub.
Speer short barrel Gold Dot 158 gr 357 mag. These rounds are stout, but manageable.
I use some .38+p for range practice, but prefer to stick to .357, as that is my carry ammo.
I do not understand how some people can actually shoot (with any accuracy) some of the airweight style revolvers, in .357 magnum.
The SP is heavy, but that is what makes it great for .357 mag.
Mine will be going off to Gemini Customs one of these days.
I occasionally miss my Subcompact Glock, but the real deal is steel!
Great gun, I love mine Use a milt Sparks summer special or remora most of the time, Latly I have been favoring Hayesleather have a Patriot OWB
