SP101 or S&W M&P 9mm
 
I have an opportunity to trade my Ruger SP101 in 38/357 for a new S&W M&P 9mm. What would you do? :confused:

Find the money to buy the mp, and keep the revolver.

Ditto... but that's me. I have no idea what the OP's needs are.

My SP101 is the last hand gun I would get rid of. Too versatile.

Not enough information to evaluate the reason for the trade.

The Ruger SP101 in the inventory is like having flour in the pantry. Trading all your flour for sugar may or may not be a good idea.

Absolutely trade that wheel gun for the M&P...it's nothing like flower or sugar, your looking at almost triple the ammo capacity in a very fine auto pistol. It hurts me to say it but some people are trading in their Glocks for M&P's

With 9 mm, you'll need the extra rounds to equal the effectiveness of the 357 on a round per round basis.

If i only had to choose one i would keep the Sp101 just for fact that i love revolvers, and the Sp101 is one of my next guns on my list to get. But it's more of what do you need a handgun for? Is the Sp101 your only handgun? If it is, do you keep it for range? or for personal/home defense?

I would get the M&P

I have a few guns, but only two hand guns. A Ruger 22/45 and the SP101. I do alot of camping so I purchased the SP101, but its the 2.25" barrel. Its a great gun....solid as a rock, but when you shoot .357...at least for me....my accuracy goes way down. I could move to a GP100 and thats been a consideration, but I am just so damn accurate with that S&W M&P 9mm. Plus my wife goes camping with me quite a bit and she is good with a 9MM but I am not sure I would trust my life if she had the SP101 in .357. She just can't seem to get used to it. My thought is that it is very unlikley I will be attacked by a bear (we only have black bears) and be in need of a .357 round...I am more concerned with the two legged animals strolling around in the middle of nowhere.
