Default need help with new gun buy???

i took my ccdw test the other day, i passed and outshot everyone there with my ruger service six, yes the same service six i at one time thought of trading or selling because of a little rust and a few tiny pits. not anymore as at 7yds double action 20rds tore a hole in the plyboard that my fist would go through. i was the only one there with a revolver, now to my question. i have a safariland 568 for my service six, and will use it till i get another gun, but now it seems i can get another gun in about two months. i want a revolver and a ruger if i can, what do ya'll suggest? the 357 lcr or the 357 sp101? mabe something else? i know it's two months but i like to plan ahead, thanks

If I planned on never shooting it, the lcr is quite a bit lighter and has a Crimson Trace grip, but I would still want the version that has an exposed hammer.

If it was me, I would buy the 3" 101, as I could be point shooting before acquiring the laser visual, the gun is a little more controllable (and probably fun to shoot), and more versatile.

do you plan on ccwing with it??

if so get the lcr 357mag. its got a VERY good da trigger and no exposed hammer to hang on clothing. its good to go right out of the box after an initial cleaning.

We have an SP101 that shoots very well. The SP101 is heavy to carry and not as easy to conceal as you might think. Jon mentioned some of the issues with carrying a SP101. The hammer does get snagged in your clothing, exposing the gun. You can carry the sp101 very easily in a high riding holster, with a T shirt as a cover garment. The advantage of having the hammer is obvious...
