I just bought a 3 inch model Saturday. I put 50 rounds of 38 special through it first. It felt like I was shooting a 22. I then switched to Magtech 357 (can't remember the weight) and what a difference. I went back to the range Sunday and shot it again (same Magtech 357). It is a fun accurate little gun. I have ordered the Hogue grips and am considering Magna-porting and a night sight.

The SP 101 is a great revolver, works every time, and pretty to look at, easy to conceal. Mine has a 2" barrel so it is not a good target gun, I call it a gut gun shoot from the hip under 10 yards. It is good and heavy to help with the recoil some, good grips will help that also. Enjoy a great gun.

I have one in .327 Federal. I like that I can load 6 and it shoots .32 which is not much different to shoot than .22. But, .327 lets your wrist know that there is some firepower.

I've always wanted an SP101. Every time I see the gun brought up, its weight is mentioned as a negative, especially when carry is the subject. My XDm compact weighs 27 ozs. and is considered a reasonable carry gun (with short mag). The SP101 weighs 25 ozs. with a 2.25" barrel. I'm not sure why it gets criticized.

It's all relative. Compared to my S&W 380, my SP101 is noticeably heavy. Compared to my XDm 40 with a full clip, I hardly notice the Ruger at all.

We have a local sporting goods store that routinely carries the .327 federal, but it is a little pricey-but not more so than other similar high power hand gun ammo.
The .32 H&R is a little harder to find-mostly can be found online. I can get .32 at the same sporting goods store more intermittently and it is cheaper, but then it is also lead, which is dirtier shooting.

Absolute garbage. I don't know why anyone would own such a pos. I keep mine on me at all times
