Default Bad Day ends Well

Took the new little plinker (Taurus 94 2" 22lr) to the range to see what it we ould do and to hopefully have a little fun. Wrong. In the last 9 months I had purchased two previous Tauri - a 38sp UL and a 4" 22lr. The 38sp was average but improved with a little smith work on it. The 4" 22 is a dream - smooth as silk and fun to shoot. The new 2" 22lr performed about as bad as bad can be. Hard hammer to cock, refuses to eject the shells sometimes, and worst of all, the cylinder locks and you cannot pull the hammer back. Spent the rest of the time shooting the MK9 and EMP. The Good News is that will strolling and drooling after shooting I saw a Ruger SP101 2" stainless 357 with spurless hammer. Trigger pull just silky. Went to pick up the wife from her bridge group, told her about it (would be a good gun for her finger strength), she said lets go get it. It now has a new home. Guess I will just have to deal with Taurus next week and when things get difficult, go fondle the Ruger.

You'll be able to hand that SP101 down to your great grandchildren.

Had me laughing at : " when things get difficult, go fondle the Ruger."
.

I'll change that to "When things get difficult, I go fondle my GLOCK".

I like Taurus (I got a Raging Bull .44Mag), but I gotta say that they all miss the last touch of quality. Enjoy your Ruger,...

You'll enjoy the SP101. Get you some snap caps and practice your trigger pull and speed loading around the house. It'll make your range sessions more valuable.

I dropped my SP101 on my floor a few weeks ago and man you should see the floor!

I share your joy! The spurless model isn't that easy to come by and when you find one, the seller usually wants an arm and a leg.

An SP101 was the second pistol I'd ever purchased and I absolutely loved it. Sadly, a day came when I had to sell it and I swore that when better times arrived, I'd get another.

It took a few years but recently I started looking to replace it and learned about the spurless model. From there, I was on a mission. Eventually I came across a deal on Gunbroker.com for a NIB spurless model that was almost too good to be true but thankfully, it was.

Suffice it to say, I'm extremely pleased! This is a classic snub nose revolver with the fit, finish, feel, and performance to rival any other.

By the way, if you're interested in dressing up your SP101 grips, Google "Chig's Grips". This fellow knows what he's doing and provides excellent quality inserts with many styles to choose from. I went with the acrylic inserts and received them very quickly. They were perfect!
