Semiauto's ... very available.
I don't think this actually indicates a shift back to revolvers - but it is interesting.
I've been trying to find an SP101 for months ...
Out of frustration, I bought a Colt 357 Trooper - flawless condition. But it is a big gun.
Just bought my sp101 3 weeks ago. Right after the sandy hook tragedy. Had been in the market previously but that made me jump a bit sooner.
My lgs had 2 sp101s. One 3 inch used and a new 2.25. 2 hours later when I showed up, someone was buying the 3 inch. I had my sights set on the 2.25 and put a deposit on it right then. Still had to go get my purchase permit. It was the first time I'd handled an sp101 and it felt perfect from the moment I picked it up.
Very happy with the purchase. Good luck to you in finding one.
