    My wife's gun is the SP101 327. She shoots 32H&R magnums - and when she gets it out, I get to bring out the 327 rounds. If it wasn't hers, it would be mine. SP101 is a great platform. I think it is about as perfect a blend as you can get between easy of carry and heavy enough to be stable even with a 357 round. Congrats on your new gun. I'm sure you're gonna really enjoy it.

    Agree with everyone else hard to go wrong with that one. I have the SP101 in 357 single/double and love it. Even my 12 yr old enjoys shooting that one. As someone said prior think about grips. The stock ones were ok but I added a Hogue 3 finger grip to mine and it's damm near perfect.

    Excellent choice! I've owned one for 20 years and even when times were tough it's the one gun I refuse to let go. Tough, reliable, and excellent accuracy. Who is this S&W person you speak of?:)

    I'm a 3" SP101 fan & never plan to be without one. They are the TOUGHEST j-frame sized revolver available. Small enough to carry but heavy enough to comfortably handle the hottest .357 mag SD loads all day. For you lightweight S&W/LCR fans, yes the SP101 is too heavy for practical pocket carry. But so is an anvil, and dang hard to break!

    Well done with your purchase! I will own one soon also.
    Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
    If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.
