I finally made it to the range with my new SP101 2.25" .357 Mag last night (I can't believe it took almost a month!) and I can't say enough good things about this gun! Felt great and functioned flawlessly! Accurate enough at 20ft to keep the holes within a 10" circle. 38spl +P+ Hydra-Shoks in 147gr were a breeze, .357Mag Hydra-Shoks in 158gr were a handful! I gotta admit they stung a little, so I think it'll be wearing Hogue grips in the very near future. The best part of the evening is that it was the first time my fiance has ever fired a gun, and now she has the bug too! Overall, a great evening! Thank you to everyone who recommended the SP101 while I was shopping around. You sure didn't steer me wrong!
