    I bought a 3" SP101 about 2 weeks ago for $ 469 ( in New Mexico). I don't know if that was a good deal but I was satisfied.

    You're in the same range.....

    Nice gun indeed. For the price, I would get a semi-auto.

    An SP101 3 1/16" is my EDC. Never carried at sea. Keep it clean. Even though it's stainless it's not indestructible.

    The SP101 is a great little carry gun, but around seawater, it will need meticulous maintenance. Stainless steel buys you a bit of time, but it WILL rust.
