Default Taurus tracker or GP 100?

I'm thinkin about buying a new revolver. I can't decide if I want a GP 100 or a Taurus tracker. Any opinion on which is better?

Don't know much about the Taurus, but my GP100 eats just about any ammo I feed through her with extreme accuracy.

How is the trigger on the GP? I've shot the tracker once and really like it.

Hey Brother I know this a stupid question to ask but the one in his leg was that the first shot and he didnt stop chewing on the nut so you put the rest in the middle or what?

My nephew has a Tracker in .357, and i have a GP100 in .357 (both have 6" barrel). His holds seven rounds to my six. They are very comparable in shooting experience, but the Ruger feels ever so slightly more solid. I also like the GP100 grips better. His is stainless, while mine is blued.

As far as i know, my nephew has had no complaints about his Tracker.

Yeah a buddy of mine bought a tracker and I like it. But I like the Ruger a little more. Mainly because the feel of it is just slightly better in my opinion.
