    Hello peeps! I have been trying to find the perfect CCW piece for me and believe me i have tried most of them, from compact 1911 /full size/commander to S&W 637,642 etc. to lcp/lcr/sr9, to kahr cw9/40,keltec P11,bersa thunder in 9mm/380,xd subcompact in 9mm,xd service in 9/40, taurus 44spl(which i liked) and i think i finally found it!!hahaha.I was always intrigue by the SP101 so today i went to the funshop to decide what really i want for christmas so I examined this Sp01 and i was impress on the balance,average weight and I always like the 357 mag caliber so here she is my 1st SP101..I already tried it with different factory loads and man it was quite impressive..anyhoodle here it is..

    Very Nice... Great Choice... is it a 3" barrel?

    They are awesome guns !! Get the Hogue replacement grip and you'll be like whoa !! I had some issues with my casings getting stuck sometimes and i dont think im the first to have that happen with the SP-101. Hope you enjoy it.

    Hard to beat an SP101. The best stocks I have found for mine are Trausch Grips. On the SP101 I prefer them to Hogue or Pachmyr for comfort, fit, and looks and they do a good job of taking some of the slap out of magnum loads when shooting. Congratulations on getting a fine revolver.

    I would love to get a GP-100 someday as a range gun. Similer to the SP-101 but with 6 rounds over 5 and a longer barrel. Congrats again the Ruger, tell us how she shoots!

    Wow thats nice. The SP101 is on my short list of guns to get. Man they just feel right. I am interested in your thoughts of how it shoots. Also remember to return your daughters Disney Princess pencil before she realizes its gone.

    Thumbs up

    Great carry piece! I have one just like it. It's a tough little gun. The 3 inch barrel is so much better with magnum loads. I used to have a 2 inch S&W, but sold it and got the 3 inch Ruger.

    I just got the hogue for mine to, makes a huge difference!
    Vermont does not issue Permit/Licenses to Carry a Concealed firearm. Vermont allows anyone
    who can legally own a firearm to carry it concealed without a permit of any kind.
