I have not been shooting for about a year. I went out to sight in my Bushmaster AR15 M4A3 last week and tried my hand guns. I have a Kahr K40 and a Springfield XD40 and could not hit my small stick on target at 7 yards. Man I was bummed. I brought out my Ruger SP101 and with one hand nailed my target with every 5 rounds.
I don't know what was wrong other than a serious lack of practice. I love my little Ruger SP101 (.357), so I stopped by Cabela's today and they had a like new used GP100 ( .357) stainless with 4" barrel for $399. I now have it and after tomorrow at the range, it will be in my gun vault under my night stand.
It's tough to beat a Ruger. Now I have two and I'm a happy camper with their simplicity and reliability.
