How do you like it, I'm considering one

I haven't taken it out yet, but I will give you a range report as soon as I do.

So I took it out. Oh its awesome. I love it .357 mags sting even though its a steel frame. I wouldn't want to shoot a light weight snub nose. Shooting the .38sp was so fun though, almost no perceived kick. The only down side I think is the 5 rounds. I would rather 6 but u either go with a smaller round or bigger frame. I shot 10 mag rounds and went to the .38sp rounds and was able to hit on paper about 10 yards.

That is good to know, glad your likening your revolver, so you really like the SP101?, especially with the 38s round? I'm considering either that gun or a Ruger SR 9 pistol, keep us informed the more your shoot your beautiful revolver

Good choice, everthing about a Ruger revolver is built tough, to last.
You will surely see it ....passed down to a younger one, of your choice. if and when the time comes.
