Got My New Wheel Gun on Friday!
Well, I finally strayed from the path of the semi auto. I purchased an SP101 .357 mag 3" barrel online just prior to the new year and it arrived at the FFL yesterday. Admittedly, I'd been looking at the SP for a while, but with the current political situation and after having read what the Wicked Witch of the West has proposed in the Senate (and realizing that everyone of my carry pistols fit some description of what she wants banned regulated, done away with, removed, expunged or whatever), I decided to go ahead and make the purchase.
Either way, I'm impressed! The SP is built like a tank, very solid feel. Honestly, I'd expected a much rougher trigger, surprisingly, it isn't too bad. Maybe since I'm used to shooting DA/SA pistols already. I'd been looking at sending it off right away for some work, but now, I figure I'll dryfire it awhile and shoot it awhile before I make any drastic decisions there. Sat around last night dry firing the pistol, drove my wife crazy. Though, I think I need to guard it carefully, as she was casting covetous glances in the SP's direction.
I can see now why the SPs are so hard to find...mine was manufactured in the first week of December and was sold to me prior to the end of the month! From what I've found out, they're moving as fast as the gun shops get them in. Can't wait now for the holster to come in. Ordered a Simply Rugged Silver Dollar, should be another week according to their schedule.
If the weather warms up a bit, I'll get some .38 and some .357 and take it out to the range and give it a proper welcome to the family!
