The Ruger GP100 is a great revolver. I have a nice 6" blued. I recommended the Taurus because the oringinal post was asking for a low priced knock around weapon. No offense, but you won't find a new GP100 on gunbroker for $300-$400. As a matter of fact, gunbroker in my opinion does not offer any deals, like most gun shows now, they end up at retail prices. Just about any respectable gun manufactuer offers a line of revolvers that will outlive all of us. Just my 2 cents.

I don't want to get in a pissing contest, but I personally stay away from Taurus. That's why I recommended the Rugers.

Same here. We could (and have) argue over the quality and benefits of Taurus or other lesser firearm companies for days, but with Ruger, you know what your gonna get. I don't why anyone would feel the need to "baby" a GP100. I have dropped my SP101 once and you should see the dent it put on my floor. Not a scratch on the gun.

My GP100 is one of my favroite guns, more so then my glock, every time i go to the mountains i take it with me. I would feel bad about climbing down to the river and it slip somehow and go banging down the rocks, aside from the fact i paid a good penny for it.

May I ask why you don't like the Taurus? Do you own one?

Hey Deathkricket,
These revolvers are not priced yet. the manufacturer is supposedly out of business. They are supposed to go for close to $2000.00. I might be wrong, but that is what some other sites have been discussing.

If you have a GP 100 that should be all you need.....even if you are prone to rolling in dirt.

Since guns are in high demand these days you are probably not going to find one that is good quality and cheap. Maybe if you are lucky and hunt around some classified ads on some of the online forums or an onlinne gun store, but otherwise you probably going to pay $300+ unless its a .22 calibur gun.

You said it was for self defense, but what does that mean? Is this a CC gun or just a woods walker? I assume its the latter, but even then I woulld take the GP 100 and not worry about dirt.....they are easy to clean and unless you plan on selling it a few nicks and scratches give it character.

Shirt, I'll send you a PM. I don't want to hijack the OP's thread.

IF you take your time, you could find a COLT Python, Trooper, or a King Cobra at a reasonable price. I have a stainless steel King Cobra with a 4" barrel. The action is smooth as glass, and you can fire +P .357 Magnums in it all day. I wouldn't trade my Colt for a dozen other .357's. OK, maybe a 686 Smith & Wesson...
