    Amazingly, it's not heavy at all compared to the semi-auto.

    I have a Simply Rugged pancake holster being made for it along with a belt, so it will feel even lighter with a good holster and belt.

    I love my little sp101. The added weight makes for quick follow-up shots, congrats.

    That's one of the reasons I bought it with the 3" barrel, too.

    Now that's a revolver that I could live with...a great defensive partner.
    Nice choice!

    Am I missing something? The SP1-1 shown in the picture has a hammer on it, which would make it DA/SA, not DAO.

    You'll have to excuse for me being a noob to revolvers but the owners manual calls it a SP101 DA revolver, so you're correct.
