    Glockman's Bad Influence Continues - 2nd SP101

    A few weeks back Glockman's snub posts got me to wishin' for a snub for pocket carry. I came across a SP101 DAO and snatched it from my LGS to fulfill that role, and as a backup to my GP100. Although I have and do carry Glocks, the wheelgun bug I caught is not in remission. So, while I was in town Thursday I stopped by another shop and spied another SP101 with an exposed hammer. Ruger revolvers have been hard to come by in these parts, so I used that as an excuse to get this one........ 2014-08-22 13.33.13.jpgMy wife bought my first excuse for getting my DAO SP101, which was to blame Glockman's bad influence of reminding me of the good ole' days of police work. So for this one I had to use a different excuse.....but a truthful one.

    Being on the more "seasoned-side" of the age has some perks, one of which is knowing what works. My first SP101 DAO hides nicely in my front pocket in a DeSantis Nemesis holster 2014-07-12 12.11.26.jpg. Glockman has been 100% correct in his snub posts when he states it can be carried undetected. He is also correct in stating that you can even while walking with your hand in your pocket with an acquired grip ready to draw if need be.

    So I decided to pick up the exposed hammer version of the SP101 and match it with my DAO version for those times when the wife and I travel. 2014-08-22 13.35.33.jpg This presents me with not only the famous New York Reload scenario, but also a spare gun to utilize if my wife needed to arm herself.

    This SP101 came with a new grip insert style 2014-08-22 13.33.39.jpg, but I much prefer an aftermarket Hogue grip as does my wife.

    Although I have a spare Nemesis holster to pocket carry, I wanted an OWB holster to distribute weight better for carry. Those of you who are (or were) cops and have to wear duty gear know exactly how critical this can be. So, I dialed up El Paso Saddlery and ordered a Street Combat holster for a 3" SP101 2014-08-22 13.36.10.jpg (just remember this when you get to the end of my post). The Street Combat holster is my ideal holster design if I were to make one for myself. It is lined and formed for the individual gun 2014-08-22 13.37.44.jpg , and is made from premium quality leather. Combined with a black Galco Gunbelt it is not only a handsome rig, it is also very functional and easily worn all day. Since both take the same ammo, and both take the same speedloader, they are fully compatible with all the gear and accessories. Ammo wise I run either Remington 125 grain Golden Saber Medium Velocity .357 Magnums or Remington 158 grain Lead Semi-Wadcutter Hollow Point +P's in .38 Special. So when traveling and concealment is critical, I can utilize these and download one to .38 Special for my wife.

    I joke about Glockman being a bad influence, but really he isn't. We both came into law enforcement careers when the revolver was "King Of The Cop Guns", and in truth, the revovler still has a place in today's armed citizen bag of tricks. Mine fulfill a specific niche that lends itself well for me and my wife to ensure our safety. Now.........remember when I said I ordered a 3 inch version of the Street Combat Holster and my SP101's are the 2.25" version? Guess what comes in tomorrow to my local LGS....yep a 3" inch DAO version of the SP101. Got a feeling I am going to make another post Tuesday or Wednesday.......and also the feeling I might need a shoulder rig.....

    Glockman is infamous for his being a bad influence. If you don't believe me, just read his older post about his daughter, and the evil influence he has had on her: My Hell Cat daughter thumps mean in parking lot

    For those of you who are new to the Forum, you really need to read this, it is classic on Gman's "bad" influence.........

    Too bad our country doesn't have more men like Glockman...........

    Yep, a few more "bad influences" like Glockman is what this country need. The streets would be safer to walk down.

    I had forgotten about Golckman's post about his butt kicking daughter. Who needs the cavalry to the rescue, just call Glockman and his daughter!!

    Ha ha! Well an update on my little firebrand; she testified about six months back at the trial. The guy got 180 days for assault 4, and he also has an EPO order restraining him from his child and wife.
    My last little girl is now cut loose on the campus of Northern Ky University, in her first week of college. God have mercy on them!

    GhostMaker, good to hear your enjoyment with the revolvers! I did some testing on 125 weight Hornady XTP's today out of both the snub and the 64. My goal is to replicate the Remington Golden Saber round, which is a hot 1058 fps out of my 64 and 938 from the snub. I am close, but will need more testing. Too hot out there to fool with anymore today!
    But if one doesn't handload, the GS is a hot load, and IMO the one to carry in a 38 revolver if an HP is desired.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

    Yep, just rained up here long enough to soak everything......then the sun came out. There's so much humidity now fish can crawl up on the bank and breath out of water. Speaking of revolvers, I am having El Paso Saddlery replace a few pieces of my old leather gear for them. Sometime this week they should be sending a speedloader pouch for my GP100. I am also going to try a Safariland 5-shot speedloader pouch (single) that splits over the gun belt. I forgot how nice snubs were to carry, and any data you get from your testing would be great for a post.

    Congrats on your little girl going to college. My son starts Monday, and the school gave him a good start by giving him credit for his Air Force training. So he walks in with 36 credit hours going toward his degree, which is a big help. The biggest thing my Army training got me in school was fulfilling the PE credits (surprisingly they don't give credits for M60 and 1911 qualification badges in college).

    Ah, darn it! I can't resist. I'm going back out and trying a few loads I just put together.
    The heat be damned!

    Now you guys are a bad influence on me as well. I have been wanting an SP101 3" Gemini Customs for awhile. Pretty pricey for sure but step one in getting a Gemini is to first have an SP. Lo and behold, a 3" happens to be newly listed on Armslist.com close by. The seller is asking $450. I have Monday off from work and am unsupervised(wife workimg). I suspect I will spend some money tommorrow.

    Congratulations, GhostMaker. I'm really enjoying the new SP101 (mine is 3" w/hammer spur). Today I appendix carried in a Galco IWB. Worked out pretty well. Mr Nelson is making one of his IWB's for me, but I do like the look of your OWB. Simple and sweet.

    Sp101 and a LCRX are on my horizon because of threads like this. I owned several revolvers years ago, but have since drifted away from them.

    You need to correct that. Then you shall be forgiven:)

    Gee whizz Ghostmaker, three SP's in a short period. Impressiv. Certainly my wife can't complain if I buy just one lonely SP.
