Ruger SP101?
#1
I have seen a couple of SP101's at a decent price ~$450.

I am very familiar with the GP100 Family, an assortment of Taurus and of course the Smith 686 family....

But what about these?  This is to pair a .357 pistol with my .357 Lever.

I've had the SP101 in both .357 magnum and 9mm.  Like the GP100 the SP101 is built like a tank and should last forever and a day. Heavy but has a very comfortable grip.  For a small .357 it would be hard to beat the SP101.

My ideal situation is:

.357 lever
6" .357
2" .357

But a 2" .357 needs to be shootable. Smaller GP100's is no problem...

Of the snubbie .357's I can't think of one that would work better than the SP101 in terms of comfort, durability and manageability.

Waiting to see what this stupid state does with gun laws. I may be switching to a revolver for a while because I refuse to registrar my firearms. Current bills being proposed would have you registering all semi autos.

Buy it,a .38spl+p @ 125gr would rock.My .5 carries a .41mag S/W daily.'08.
If you look like food,you will be eaten.


I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.


Quantity has a quality all of its own.

Great revolver! Get a good old Lee hammer loader and make your own ammo.

You know, here, in the American republic....

You can live in any of the 50 states you choose.  Most have schools, grocery stores, jobs and all of that stuff!

Well, Hickock45 had some very interesting thoughts on it.

We are discussing that. My dad lives just a half mile from us, so we have to consider that.

We have started looking at houses in MO. The biggest issue for us, my wife and I are spoiled when it comes to work. I drive less than 10 minutes to work (hit the two stoplights on green and we are talking 5 minutes) and she drives less than 15 minutes to work.

Right now she has to be 57 to retire with a full pension, so she has 12 years to go. Once she retires, we can move wherever we would like, which we have been talking TN.

So, we will wait and see.

Ahhh- Golden Chains, courtesy of the State!  Hope that pension is there in 12 years.  Pension gone, have to register semi's....man that would suck.  Fortunately no Governmental entities have went belly up on pension....oh wait!!!


Oh man - tripped into a pile of great .357's, but need a new washer.  Perhaps a sign from an entity in authority that I have enough guns!!!!! Angel
