    If all goes well..................

    Wednesday should be the day I purchase a new SP101 in 357 2.25" version. My son, is home on leave from the 173d Airborne Brigade in Italy, and he has been thinking AR-15,even though he can't have one overseas. I think it'll just be a Ruger Revolver day though. Fine by me..new gun,son home...great stuff!

    You will love your SP-101. I sure love mine.

    A little more eye candy for you until you can post your own.
