    Here is SP101 in a garrett industries silent thunder solo. It is leather lined kydex with a cloth material next to your skin. You will forget you are wearing it provided your pant are not way to tight.IMG_0618__34958_1348063040_220_220.jpg

    Old Grunt, I picked it up today. I posted photos in the Search for the Golden Fleece thread.

    Just remember, the 357 is a super-high pressure cartridge. Touching one of these off indoors will be very comparable to being within range of a flashbang going off. There will be a sizable muzzle flash and a lot of sound and concussion. In a small frame gun like an SP101, I would like to make the humble suggestion of, instead, finding a hot 38 special +p to run instead. Follow-up shots will be faster, and remember, shot placement is king. Muzzle flip in short barrel revolvers is quite pronounced with 357. Even my K Frame bucks a bit with the 357, and that's a shade bigger than the SP. Check out the 135 grain gold dot in 38. You'll love it, I do.

    Buffalo bore makes a low flash for short barrels.

    I have carried IWB a 3 inch Ruger Speed Six hundreds of times, no problem. Having a six round cylinder instead of five, it's a bit wider than the SP-101's.

    You shouldn't have any problems with your skinny little five shot SP-101. I also have no problems carrying my SP-101 either, but it has a 2 1/4" barrel.

    I carry an SP101 short barrel in a Don Hume H717 outside holster. The holster holds the gun high and tight so just an un-tucked shirt covers it quite well. It took 9 months to get the holster though. Maybe being left handed added to the lead-time, but that's a long time.

    LOVE is and understatement for my 3". As stated above, the only people who don't love them don't own them. I carry mine now and again. Need a better holster is the only reason it doesn't see more carry time.

    Anybody carrying an SP101 Concealed?

    I'm still waiting for my CCW to get here so the only time I have carried is while hunting. I carry my Ruger Security Six 4" In a holster on my hip. I never notice the weight and under a coat it is completely concealed.

    In Missouri it is legal to Conceal Carry a handgun without a permit while you are actively hunting.

    I have the 2 1/4'' BBL. Have Badger boot grips on it and carry in a High Noon tail gunner holster. Backed up by a 642 in left front pocket.

    I own several Ruger revolvers ,I own predessor to sp101 ,security six stainless and Rugers revolvers are built like tanks.
    I like rugers as well as the smith & wesson revolvers. I wouldn't hesitate to use my ruger for carry and I hope I can afford
    to purchase more in the future.

    First revolver

    The Ruger SP101 in 4.2" will be my first revolver.
    I also am waiting for my CCW here in NY.
    I wonder if the 4.2 inch barrel will be too hard to conceal.

    Side Guard Holsters - IWB Holsters - Tuck Clip this is what I went with but this site has a lot of holsters that seem to work very well with revolvers. You will likely find something very suiting for your sp101.
