I don't carry a 101 but I do carry a LCR.
Have Fun and Shoot Straight !!
Chig grips on mine love them super great service ad very quick to send when ordered, like next day fast. XS standard size big dot should be here tomorrow and on the wheelie by Tuesday night. Yay me!!!!!
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.
Looking at holster's myself for a 3" .357 sp101.. these post are helpful! Thanks all

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 carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".
When I owned mine I carried it in a Simply Rugged Holster. Rob makes great holsters

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.
