    Welcome from Kansas! For what it's worth, I've just completed researching for my first revolver purchase--plenty of semi automatics, but no wheel guns for carry...the Ruger SP101 looks like an awfully good revolver for the price!

    JayHawker, In my opinion, the SP101 is the best bang for the buck revolver, bar none. That design has been around for years and years and it time proven in reliability, accuracy, affordability and just plain good looks. I traded my SP101 snubby .357 10 years ago and have regretted it ever since. I own a bunch of revolvers, including the one I carry, a S&W Model 37 Airweight, but I continually long for that SP101 again. Soon I'll pick up another one, but I need to trim my current herd of guns first.

    I say buy it!

    That was actually the gun I was looking at in Gander Saturday. Was afraid of the kick, my hubby said I wouldn't be able to hit anything within 7 feet with the short barrel. I read with it being so light it does give a good kick and not the most fun to shoot, not afraid of the kick but wanna enjoy shooting too. I wish I could try them out.

    I'm a new member too, only from PA. If you were closer, I'd let you shoot my S&W Model 37 airweight. The Model 37 is basically an older version of the newer airweights but with no shrouded hammer. I'll say it kicks a little more than a standard weight gun, but not a ton more. From 7 ft it's still pretty easy to hit the target, even with a controlled pair. I think the whole "short barrel sight picture" is a bit overblown at those short distances. I can hit my mark fairly well (defensive shooting practice) back to about 15-20 feet or so and can group 12" at about 50' on a bench, even with the short barrel.
