    My new (to me) GP100.

    Picked up an older (1989) GP100 4" off of a guy on the Ruger Forums. She is in excellent condition. Looks to have been more of a safe queen than anything else. It came with the "Lett" grips with the wood inserts but the Hogue is just so much more comfortable for my hand. Haven't shot her yet and I probably won't get a chance until next weekend, unfortunatly. But I'll chime in with a range report then.

    The GP-100 is about as good as it gets, built like a tank and fires the perfect handgun round the .357 mag.

    My wife has one. It's a hoss and she shoots it very well for 5'3" and 125 lbs.
    It's her house gun for when I'm not around.

    I had a GP-100, once upon a time, just like that with Pachmayr grips. I say "had" because my apartment was broken into while I was at work and it was stolen. Man, I miss that gun. As much as I like my semi-autos, there is just something "purdy" about a SS wheel gun. Congrats!

    VERY pretty. Congratulations. Shoot her well and often; but only at the range.

    Can't beat that Ruger (except with my SP101)...actually, almost the same thing...it's a tank...congrars!
