    All this pictures inspired me to order some Chig inlays. Made a huge difference in feel, and look a lot better. Nice guy, too. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1348261983.928596.jpg

    Whoa! Very nice! I would love a set like that but I'm sure they are a pretty penny. I'm ordering the inserts for now but I do have plans for full woods grips as well.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    Close to 50% of the time I carry a SP101 in a Simply Rugged OWB.

    My other carry guns are smaller and lighter but the Simply Rugged is the most comfortable holster I have. Weight doesn't become much of an issue do to good balance.

    My review of the SideGuard Quick Clip IWB holster for SP-101. I like it!

    I carry a 2 1/4" DAO SP101 on a regular basis in a Milt Sparks VM2. Fantastic gun with a fantastic holster. My preference for ammunition is magnum on the heavier end of the scale. I am currently using 158 grain Hydrashoks, mostly because that is what I could find in stock last time I was shopping .357 Magnum defensive ammunition.

    Over the last 25 years I have owned 7-8 but NEVER carried them. It is a great house/car/range gun but too heavy for carry. For pocket I carry a J frame, for belt a K frame.

    I've been carrying my SP101 ever since I bought it! I'm using an Uncle mikes soft holster for AIWB but I'm still looking for a nice leather OWB holster. I dont mind open carry, especially with such a nice looking gun. I find carrying mt SP101 AIWB just as easy as my P238, strange but I never would have guessed it.

I'm happy with the setup. I'll try to get a pic up.
    I ordered the same holster today after spending about 3 hours researching holsters for the SP. I ordered an SP101, with 3 inch barrel today. I am amazed at how hard these revolvers are to find--looking forward to getting it in and out to the range!

    Ran my 3" for the first time yesterday.. Like a dream. I even bought a cheap uncle mikes iwb to try and carry it, felt very comfortable. The .357 loads handled just as we'll as the .38sp loads I put in. This gun so far has really lived up to what every one has said on here.
