    Who carries an SP101?

    I bought one a few years ago with the intent of carrying it when the day came that I could get a permit. That day is coming the first of January and I haven't selected a holster yet. Any suggestions?

    Nice Ruger, As for a holster you have to decide how you are going to carry it IWB OWB Smartcarry etc.. Alot of that depends on your clothing, job, and what is comfortable for you. I would try some different cheaper hoslters to find what you like and then get on of the better ones made for you.

    I'll probably carry OWB, IWB doesn't work with my present body shape.
    Meant to put that in my first post but forgot.

    When I bought mine I had plans to send it off to Weigand Combat for one of their package jobs. Jack Weigand quit doing that kind of work before I could get it sent.
    I did the bead blast on it then polished out the cylinder flutes. Added a Trijicon front sight, Wolf springs and the Eagle secret service grips.
    It's a good shooter and I always planned on using it for carry but became concerned about weight and bulk. It won't be my primary carry piece, I bought a PT145 for that but I'd still like to carry it now & then.

    You mean there's people who don't carry the SP101? It rides surprisingly well in an Andrews Leather front pocket holster (thought it wouldn't because of the weight, but it does) and I really like the Mernickle SOB holster (even though some say to not carry that way).

    I use a cheap Uncle Mike's IWB holster. It's a number 5 or 15 (whichever is smaller) for a compact semiauto. It works. My SP101 has the 3" bbl and I like how it rides lower in the semiauto holster.

    I have an SP101 and carry it about 30% of the time. I have an OWB leather holster - very nice - but OWB just isn't for me. I usually pocket-carry the thing and find it fairly easy to do so. You need deep pockets and loose pants - but it conceals comfortably and I have no problems with that method. Use an uncle-mike pocket holster - about $8.

    I carry mine in a Mr. Softy clip on IWB...if I carried it more often, I would have gotten the same holster I use for my 442..a Del Fatti LP....

    I bought a SPNY model mostly for the rarity of it than to carry it. The SP101 is a solid well build shooter. While mine is rare, it is definately not a safe queen. It was a tad heavier than I would like for CCW so I stick to my 638-2. I would not hesitate however to carry it when needed. I would like to add a .357 version to the club.
    If we treat every gun as if it was loaded, then why not treat every individual as if they are armed.

    I would agree with estimber. I bought an SP 101 a few years back in order to move up power-wise, from my S&W 442. But, I too thought it was a bit too heavy and I think the trigger on the S&W is smoother.
