    That's a workhorse gun! Can't wait for pics.

    Are you going to shoot it, or beat the BG's down with it?

    I have a 5inch Gp100 and love it. I might get bashed for this but I personally think the whole .410 revolver idea is a gimmick. But thats just my opinion.My father-in-law asked me a couple months ago what I thought of them because someone at his work told him he needed to get one. I told him the same thing. I dont think you'll regret getting a gp100. The weight of the gp100 soaks up the recoil from the .357. You can shoot hot loads all day and its like shooting a .38 imho.

    For about a 1/4 second I thought you were talking about bribery.

    I've had a 4" GP100 since they first came out on the market. You won't regret the wait.

    I'd buy the S&W Governor over the Taurus Judge any day. The GP100 is, in my mind, a much better choice than any Taurus (but I'm biased against Taurus due to a couple of family members' experience with them).

    The Judge and Governor are gimmick revolvers. You have made a wise choice with the Ruger.

    I love my 6" GP100. Beast of a gun. Look forward to seeing my grandkids shoot it!

    Smart move. I do not care for the Judge and it would actually be a good choice for me as a farm gun.
