Added a Ruger GP100
 
Decided to diversify my portfolio this week and picked up a Ruger GP100 6". I wanted a 357 for sometime and this one called me. I added a S&W 625 earlier and love both so far.

Till now all I had was semi autos but these revolvers are great fun to shoot.



625 JM and GP 100




My 45s

Revolvers are beautiful guns, I don't find very many semi autos attractive. You can't beat a 357 revolver, and the gp100 it's a great firearm.

I had wanted the 4" but they had the 6 in stock. I was really surprised at how nice the trigger is - very smooth and light.

I have wanted the 4" version for a while now. I have shot many ruger revolvers and I really like the trigger on them.

I started out wanting the 4, but after holding both i went with the 6 inch :)

I compromised and went with the 5". The GP is a great revolver, you're going to love it!

I'm still not sure about the hogue grip, but I'm not changing them just yet....

I have been lusting after a GP100 for a while now. Did you buy the gun retail? If so, how much are they running on the market now?

I bought my ss 6" retail in November last year for 599. I'm not sure if the newtown shooting has caused much of a change in revolver prices.

i bought the blackened 6" for 579.00 last week. The ss was 629.00 But at other stores in my area prices were about 100 more than that

That's what I've been worried about. I am prepared to pay $600 for one but with Ruger's MSRP over $700 the prices could be moving up.

I saw a S&W 686+ last week for $759 but held off in hopes of finding a Ruger.
